Designed specifically with manufacturers in mind, ULTEM 1010 combines superior heat resistance, tensile strength and chemical resistance and can be sterilized using steam autoclaving for medical applications. These properties make the ULTEM 1010 the right choice for aerospace, automotive, food production tooling, and medical device manufacturing and functional prototyping applications. Available for the Fortus 900mc, ULTEM 1010 is bio-compatible and has the only food-contact certification of any FDM thermoplastic.
“The global design and manufacturing market continues to push toward creating smarter products with greater efficiency. Because we believe in, and support this trend, we have announced today a range of solutions that focus on ‘democratizing design.’ Our customers, whatever their size or industry, can now access a wide spectrum of cutting-edge 3D printing capabilities and deliver competitive advantage,” said Gilad Yron, sr. vice president, Product Management, Stratasys. “We invite every designer and manufacturer at this year’s EuroMold to visit one of our three booths to see how 3D printing is shaping the way we manufacture.”
“ULTEM 1010 offers a new level of performance to our FDM materials portfolio,” said Brendan Dillon, product manager for Stratasys. “The combination of the low coefficient of thermal expansion and the industry certifications will allow this material to enhance many current applications, and could open the door to many new users of 3D printing.”
Ideal for aerospace, automotive, food processing and medical device applications, ULTEM 1010 combines strength and thermal stability for advanced industrial tooling. Applications for aerospace and automotive include clips, housings and ducts. Food production tools include patterns, dies and fixtures. Custom medical tools include surgical guides, fixtures and trays.
