Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) is a biodegradable material made from renewable resources and one of the most popular materials used for 3D printing.
Plastic’s App Perform PLA is a tough, easy to print material.
Although it has low temperature resistance and impact strength, it’s still considered as an excellent choice for printing prototypes with minimal functional requirements.
preparation of test specimens with relevance to the final application. Also serves a role in the processabilty evaluation and defining processing parameters of the final product.
Injection molding of samples from elastomers to high temperature materials into a temperature regulated mold. Filament production, from hundreds of grams to hundreds of kgs and printing samples for evaluation of print quality, parameters definition, and material properties. Blown film of a lab-scale bubble, to evaluate film quality and performance
Twin screw extrusion of multiple samples for evaluation of composition (loading level %), processing parameters (Temp, RPM, Throughput), add-on sequence
(Main, Side, Liquid Inj) etc….
Capable of feeding pellets, powders, liquids, recycled materials and much more… Controlling the residance time, degree of mixing, and other process parameters Flexible down stream of water or air cooling for water sensitive materials
