A new reinforcement of Weerg's additive manufacturing department announces the installation of the ProX SLS 6100 printer by 3D Systems. Based on selective laser sintering (SLS) technology, this system can handle rapid production of functional and durable nylon parts.
The implementation of ProX SLS 6100 allows Weerg to offer new features and finishes for components made of SLS, thanks to the use of white DuraForm materials supplied by 3D Systems that could be colored with the Girbau systems already installed, expanding the range of shades that the customer can select when ordering.
“We were looking for a solution that would allow us to add more color to our 3D prints, which are currently only available in Raw Grey, Extra Black Classic and Extra Black SemiGloss,” says Matteo Rigamonti, creator and founder of Weerg. “Since the first tests carried out at the 3D Systems Customer Innovation Center in Moerfelden, Germany, we have been confident that ProX SLS 6100 with the wide range of materials offered by 3D Systems was the best solution to meet our manufacturing needs.”
To start production with ProX SLS 6100, Weerg has chosen DuraForm ProX HST Composite, a fiber-reinforced engineered plastic that combines rigidity and thermal resistance and is designed for the manufacture of structural elements, housings, coatings, covers, knobs, handles, masks, equipment and internal components for the automotive industry.
“The implementation of this new technology dedicated to 3D printing, with a second machine already optioned, is just one of many upgrades that we have planned for 2019 and that will allow us to respond even more thoroughly to the demands of this market, where we register a vertical growth with runs that involve thousands of units,” says Rigamonti.
Weerg Srl is an Italian company based in Gardigiano (VE) that offers, through its weerg.com platform, online CNC machining and 3D printing dedicated to different industrial sectors, providing users with e-commerce-based services.
