New colour to 3D printing at Weerg
Weerg has expanded its additive manufacturing department with the installation of the ProX SLS 6100 by 3D Systems. Based on the most advanced Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology, this system is ideal for the rapid and cost effective production of high quality, functional and durable nylon parts. The implementation of ProX SLS 6100 allows Weerg to offer new features and finishes for components made of SLS, thanks to the use of white DuraForm materials supplied by 3D Systems which could be coloured with the Girbau systems already installed, significantly expanding the range of shades that can be selected by the customer at the time of ordering.
‘We were looking for a solution that would allow us to add more colour to our 3D prints, which are currently only available in Raw Grey, Extra Black Classic and Extra Black SemiGloss,’ said Matteo Rigamonti, creator and founder of Weerg. ‘Since the first tests carried out at the 3D Systems Customer Innovation Centre in Moerfelden, Germany, we have been confident that ProX SLS 6100 with the wide range of materials offered by 3D Systems was the best solution to meet our manufacturing needs.’
