Advanced Fusion Plastic Modeling or simply AFPM is a patented 3D Printing Technology. This is one of the emerging and promising innovations in printing technology. It was developed by Divided by Zero Technologies. By far, it’s extremely reliable and superior form of 3D Printing Technology. Far better than the traditional FFF and all other 3D printing technologies that is used by small businesses and big corporations in the market.
What makes it Stand out than other 3D Printing Tech in the Market?
Of course, AFPM would not be rated as one of the best upcoming 3D Printing Technology for nothing. There are various features and aspects that come with it which make it a remarkable feat. Some of the key features it has includes:
Adaptive Flow Rate and Temperature Control
Each and every layer of sliced component plays a big role in the printing process. This is considering extremely complicated designs and defining overall finish of the component. AFPM Technology is automatically adjusting material flow rates at every even and odd layers of built component that’s based on geometrical stress requirements.
The beauty about AFPM Technology is the fact that, it is matching industrial requirements of materials built by ensuring that it complies with RA, Elasticity and Thermal value requirements. This is while improving the part of mechanical properties.
As a result, the outcome of the test have excelled performance and compared the SLS parts. AFPM materials aren’t similar with filament spools that are utilized in traditional FFF process instead, they’re enhanced versions of the said materials.
In regards to additive part manufacturing on big volumes (higher than 500 x 500 x 500 millimeter) it is important to further improve the deposition rate of the material.
The entire purpose isn’t resolved with lower deposition rates in traditional processes followed by FFF that demands big build times for bigger volumes.
The AFPM Technology was able to make this happen via selective deposition of the materials which is auto adjusting material flow based on geometrical complexity of the parts. Layers that have high complexity and organic structure usually have low deposition rates.
