If you’re ready to take your FDM printing to another level with ultra polymers then the miniFactory Ultra could be the machine for you!

The miniFactory Ultra is a one-of-a-kind industrial 3D printer that allows you to manufacture high-quality parts cost-effectively and quickly. Whether you need a single prototype or an extensive series of specific components, miniFactory’s 3D printing system lets you manufacture parts on-site using high-performance polymers and composites. Thus, you get the highest quality in the fastest production time and have more time to focus on the essentials!

The miniFactory Aarni Process Monitoring System is great for research as well as production, enabling 3D printing quality assurance easily during the printing process. With Aarni, you can trust your part production with accurate line-by-line monitoring that ensures the part is certified and your 100th part is just as strong as your 1st.

In addition, miniFactory Ultra 3D printer has an open material system that unlocks the most comprehensive material range on the market. With the advanced heated chamber up to 250°C, the material range includes the most high-performing polymers and composites. The heated chamber 3D printer enables 3D printing of engineering and high performance polymers stably and dimensionally correct. Having access to the heated chamber hugely increases the range of materials available to you.

As the miniFactory Ultra has been developed and optimised for production with Ultra Polymers, despite extreme processing temperatures, users can safely manufacture parts with the world’s top performing polymers and polymer composites. As a result, the material range for the miniFactory Ultra is much wider than in closed systems or in systems with lower chamber temperatures.

High performance polymers have their benefits:

Great strength to weight ratio to optimise efficiency
Resistance against aggressive chemicals and solvents
Service temperatures up to 240°C opens new possibilities
Durability and silence with self lubricating properties
Extreme electrical insulation in all shapes and forms

The Ultra 3D printer can print materials such as Polyetherimide (PEI) commonly known as ULTEM 1010, Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU), PolyEtherKetone (PEKK – A) and Polyethylene Glycol (PEG)

ULTEM 1010 is used in applications that require high heat resistance, high strength or excellent electrical insulation properties.

Key Advantages

Heat resistance up to 210°C
Excellent electrical insulation properties
Good chemical resistance
Inherent flame resistance (UL94 V-0)
FDA grade available

Material Applications

Electrical insulation parts
Electrical switches and controls
Thermoforming molds
Compost Lay-Up tooling
Custom tools for metal and plastic
FDA applications

PPSU has excellent resistance to chemicals and heat. This makes it an optimal choice for medical devices requiring repeated sterilization.

Key Advantages:

PEKK-A offers extremely low outgassing, high mechanical properties and exceptional resistance to extreme environments.

Key Advantages

Heat resistance up to 150°C
Extremely low outgassing
Inherent flame resistance (UL94-V-0)
Fire Protection of Railway Vehicles
Low FST (Flame, Smoke, Toxicity)

Material Applications

Space grade parts
Trays and packaging
Technical insulation parts
Ducting

3D printing can be utilised in many different industries, just to name a few, Motorsport, Space, Aerospace, Food and Medical. It’s a great option for traditional manufacturing methods such as injection molding. 3D printing can be used to print a specific part, prototype or small series quickly.

Motorsport

3D printing revolutionises the automotive industry by offering the opportunity for more environmentally friendly and on-demand production. Due to the high-performance polymers, you can make lightweight, durable, and reliable automotive parts quickly and cost-effectively. The automotive industry enables a short lead time for assembly tools and jigs. By utilising high performance polymers, the durability of these tools can be pushed to the next level due to the extreme chemical and heat resistance of the material.

So with the miniFactory Ultra 3D printer, you can take your FDM printing to an Ultra level!
