HSS Material Network - Proof of Concept TPU Launhardt

The HSS Material Network is an interdisciplinary network of selected experts dedicated to making the development and qualification of new polymer materials for the additive manufacturing process High Speed Sintering (HSS) more flexible and faster.

The VX200 HSS from voxeljet is designed as an open source 3D printing system and provides full access to process parameters and temperature management to best match the additive manufacturing process and material. The HSS Material Network offers customers a flexible and low-risk outsourcing option for material development of additive manufacturing technologies. The addition of the competencies of the HSS Material Network partners enables companies of all sizes to receive unique support, from an initial suitability assessment, through specific development and parameterization, to certification or market-ready qualification of the material. Here we present our partners, projects and proof of concepts.

Proof of Concept III –  TPU Launhardt

Customer/material manufacturer: Launhardt GmbH
Development & Qualification: Project Group Process Innovation of Fraunhofer IPA / Chair of Environmental Production Engineering of the University of Bayreuth

The TPU from Launhardt GmbH is one of the softest on the market. In combination with HSS grayscale printing, the material properties can be influenced in all three dimensions by changing the printed ink volume. This makes it possible to incorporate different material properties, such as hardness lines, into a component regardless of the geometry.
