BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01 for the production of components and prototypes in low volume
BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01 has been developed by Basf Group in partnership with HP, for HP Multi Jet Fusion printers.
Spring’s technical team is able to build components and prototypes in BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01, in short time and at low cost.
The technical staff is able to produce performing components in BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01, thanks to additive manufacturing expertises gained over the years.
We choose this material for projects that need flexible components, producing internal parts for automotive, ducts for liquid and gas, robot grippers, sleeves, tooling, seals and much more.
BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01: an application example
In the picture above it is possible to see an automatic machine component in TPU01, this component is known as code wheel cover.
This component needs to be frequently assembled and disassembled on the machine. These operations risk to damage other machine components.
The technical team has chosen additive manufacturing and BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01 material to build this component.
Thanks to additive manufacturing skills, the use of additive manufacturing technology and BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01 material, the company has taken the following benefits:
- Component design optimization: the code wheel cover has been improved for this specific additive manufacturing process. This optimization allows to assemble and disassemble the code wheel cover, without damage to the other machine components.
- Assembling and disassembling facilitation: thanks to the use of BASF Ultrasint ® TPU01 material, the code wheel cover is more flexible, this improvement allow to facilitate assembling and disassembling operations on the machine, reducing time for these operations.
- Reducing repair activities: An easier assembling and disassembling of the code wheel cover, without damage to other machine parts, allow to reduce repair activities on the machine.
- Reducing time and costs: Production time and costs have been reduced compared with standard production.
