Swedish 3D printer manufacturer Wematter makes advanced industrial technology available in a user-friendly, all-in-one solution. The company is now introducing Aurora PA6 AM, a material that can withstand higher temperatures without compromising mechanical properties. The material is used in the aerospace and automotive industries. Aurora PA6 AM broadens the company's relevance in national and international markets. The journey towards more and new additive manufacturing materials is moving fast. In 2021 alone, Wematter has launched two new materials, TPU and ESD, and now Aurora PA6 AM is also on its way.
The Aurora PA6 AM is a material that can withstand being produced at a higher temperature than other existing materials. Once cooled, Aurora PA 6 AM’s properties include increased stiffness and mechanical strength. The base material in this newest offering, Polyamide 6, is sought after in the aerospace and automotive industries. Components in these industries, such as gears and other engine components, can be subjected to heavy loads. Such mission-critical components must maintain their strength even at high temperatures.
"Developing new materials and thus being able to broaden the scope of use of the SLS 3D printer Gravity is incredibly important and exciting for us. Of course, we want Gravity to work for as many people as possible, and, since plastics are used in so many different components, we need to have materials for different applications," says Robert Kniola, founder and CEO of Wematter.
