Raise3D, provider of additive manufacturing solutions for SMEs and large companies, presents 32 new industrial filaments for the E2CF 3D printer. The new filaments have in common a high strength-to-weight ratio and consistently high performance during long-term operations, making them particularly suitable for industries such as automotive, aerospace and healthcare, and applications such as jigs and fixtures, engineering tooling and many industrial end-use parts.
The new filaments are the result of close collaboration between Raise3D and 16 world-renowned filament manufacturers (BASF Forward AM, Covestro, eSUN, Extrudr, FiberThree, Grupa Azoty, Handtmann, Jabil, Kexcelled, Kimya, LEHVOSS, NHH, Polymaker , RadiciGroup High -Performance Polymers, Spectrum Filaments, TreeD), who participate in Raise3D’s Open Filament Program and have achieved top quality results using their filament with the Raise3D E2CF 3D printer. Filaments approved under the Open Filament program can be found on Raise3D’s ideaMaker library. To download or import the printing profiles for the E2CF in ideaMaker, please visit the ideaMaker Raise3D Library.
The E2CF is a new model aimed explicitly at fiber reinforced filaments, based on the versatile 3D printer from E2 Raise3D which presents itself as a development platform for future optimized 3D printers. The E2CF was announced in August 2021 and has been available since January 2022. The E2CF is also Raise3D’s entry-level 3D printer for fiber-reinforced filaments, where the industrial-range RMF500 comes in. as the flagship. The E2CF is available for sale at EUR 3,999 in Europe and USD 4,499 in the rest of the world from authorized resellers.
“The Open Filament Program (OFP 1.0 & 2.0) is a long-term collaboration between Raise3D and filament manufacturers to identify the highest performing filaments and provide a wide variety of proven materials validated by Raise3D for our customers. With the OFP 2.0, we strive to cooperate with the best filament manufacturers around the world to ensure compatibility as well as excellent mechanical properties and performance of the printed parts.We focus on the properties and performance of the final printed parts.The engineers of Raise3D optimize all OFP 2.0 filament printing models with guidelines, not only based on part performance validation, but also on experience and input from our end-use application cases, to bridge the gap between materials and applications,” said Minde Jin (Phd), Materials & Applications Director at Raise3D.
