Science-based company Royal DSM has released its newest AM powder material: Arnilene® AM6002 (P). The polypropylene has food contact approval in Europe and a good balance of properties, which should make it useful for making slides, sprockets, dosing blocks, and conveyor belt guides in the nutrition or food and beverage industries, and also end-use parts, interiors, and dashboard components in the automotive sector. This hydrophobic material is easy to process, with strong chemical, mechanical, and thermal properties, and even though it’s meant for powder bed fusion (PBF) 3D printing, it can also be run on existing selective laser sintering (SLS) platforms.
“We are pleased to further extend material choices for 3D printing with this engineering-grade …
