Cincinnati Incorporated Offers BASF 3D Printing Materials for SAAM HT

Cincinnati Incorporated (CI), a U.S.-based, build-to-order machine tool manufacturer, recently announced a distribution partnership with BASF 3D Printing Solutions (BASF 3DPS). CI's high temperature Small Area Additive Manufacturing (SAAM HT) machine will now offer BASF 3DPS's ABS plastic, carbon fiber PET and recycled PET materials.

"Ultrafuse ABS is created from Acrylonitrile, Butadiene and Styrene polymers, and it is the second most used 3D printing material," said a company spokesperson. "Reasons for its popularity include its strong, flexible and heat-resistant nature, plus its light weight, abrasion resistance and affordability. It is ideal for those looking to manufacture low cost prototypes, or anyone who wants to create plastic products with ease."

"Ultrafuse PET CF15 from BASF 3DPS combines easy processability and low moisture uptake with excellent strength and rigidity, all at an affordable price point," continued the spokesperson. "With this PET material, users can 3D print new components that stay functional under high mechanical and thermal loads. It is well suited for the automotive industry, jigs and fixtures and any applications with humid operating environments."

The SAAM HT machine will also offer Ultrafuse rPET from BASF 3DPS. "Nearly half of all total waste is generated by plastics, and 3D printing provides a big chance to add sustainability to manufacturing methods," said the spokesperson. "This recycled PET looks and prints just like virgin material, and much like its PET alternative, rPET capably handles jig and fixture applications, automotive work and prototypes."

While these three materials add new manufacturing possibilities to the SAAM HT, CI is also focused on getting users up and running as quickly as possible. "With our materials profiles, customers can open the box, download the profiles and have success without having to tinker too much," said Chris Haid, General Manager of CI's Additive business group.

ABS, PET and rPET will join ULTEM, PEEK, polycarbonate and any thermoplastic up to 500 °C as material options on the SAAM HT.
