Innovate and speed up your processes

Canadian leader in FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) additive manufacturing, Solaxis opts for this  industrial 3D printing technology from Stratasys for its outstanding mechanical properties.

Benefits of industrial quality FDM at Solaxis:

  • Unparalled design freedom
  • Quick turnaround and large production capacity
  • Robust engineering grade thermoplastics, such as ABS, polycarbonate, Nylon and ULTEM ™ 9085 resin
  • Ideal for production parts and functional prototypes requiring high thermal and chemical resistance, as well as excellent strength / weight ratios
  • Competitive solution for short series custom production parts

FDM Spec Sheet

Standard lead time About 4 working days, depending on part size, quantity, number of components and finishing degrees.
Standard accuracy 0.012 in (± 0.3 mm) - may vary depending on geometry.
Layer thickness 0.005 in (0.13 mm) to 0.020 in (0.50 mm) - varies depending on the chosen material.
Minimum wall thickness 0.039 in - 1 mm
Maximum build dimensions Dimensions are unlimited as components may be composed of several sub-parts. The maximum build envelope is 3 x 2 x 3 ft (914 x 610 x 914 mm).
Surface structure Unfinished parts typically have a rough surface but all kinds of fine finishes are possible. FDM parts can be smoothed, painted and coated.
