Wolfbite NITRO Adhesive Removes Headache in Nylon 3D Printing, Excellent with AXIOM 3D Printers

by • February 3, 2016 • No Comments

UntitledIt is additional than a brave new world out there for developers—it’s a darned amazing one. Along with the wide range of 3D printing equipment we can select of in these times, whether you are a novice or a pro, of the workshop to the business, many other options are on the market in assisting us innovate as we select textures and various processes to take our projects of prototype to actual products.

As the long list of options for materials, and numerous alternative ones grows, so does an approximately unlimited opportunity for technology—and that was completely unforeseen not long ago at all. From your basic filaments to much additional high end materials and accessories, you can now loll away hours and days choosing and shopping for 3D printing equipment and supplies. And while ABS and PLA are yet in the forefront as to what many users select, many other favorites are emerging due to introduced versatility, biocompatibility, low-warp, and options for via color.

Wolfbite NITRO is recommended for use with the AXIOM 3D printing device.

Enter nylon, that is a excellent material to try out—and maybe now is a great time to do so with a new product arriving on the scene of Airwolf 3D in the form of Wolfbite NITRO adhesive. If the name alone does not manufacture you curious adequate to try the stuff, the fact that this 3D printing nylon adhesive allows for you to bond nylon and nylon alloy/polymer blend parts straight to glass 3D printing device create plates without lifting most likely can. It does not matter what your level of tremendousise is—equiteone is interested in solving the headache of adhesion and warping.

If you are already via a 3D printing device equipped with a heated bed that uses glass or ceramic printing surfaces, you may find this new product alluring indeed for assisting to avoid warpage and enabling those nylon 3D prints to bond fully to your glass create plate. Wolfbite NITRO follows on the successful heels of its predecessors, Wolfbite and Wolfbite MEGA.

”For the initially time, 3D printing device users can directly print Nylon on glass substrates. We’re incredibly proud to have made the initially solution capable-bodied of effectively bonding Nylon to glass and ceramic create surfaces,” said Erick Wolf, co-founder, Airwolf 3D. ”The outcome is that users can see significant improvement in the output of their Nylon 3D printed projects when via Wolfbite NITRO.”

Wolfbite NITRO was made to eliminate inconvenient but common methods for adhesion issues like via PET movie and loads of glue—obviously a messy and expensive proposition, along with limiting users to fabricating tiny nylon parts as they deal with bonding concerns.

”As a major developer of high-temperature 3D printing equipment that excel at producing sizeable-bodied 3D printed parts in Nylon and Nylon-based materials, we are aware of the frustrations that users have with the bed adhesion of their Nylon parts,” said Erick Wolf, co-founder, Airwolf 3D. ”After months of research and development we are happy to contribute a 3D Printing Nylon Adhesive solution that can benefit only about all PC 3D printing device users.”

3d_printing_nylon_adhesive_1Wolfbite NITRO was made through a collaboration with Professor Miodrag ‘Mickey’ Micic, ScD, PhD, MTM, Department Chairman at Cerritos College in Norwalk, CA, a well known polymer chemist and additive producing tremendous. With its ‘high end surface chemistry,’ this new adhesive is quite able-bodied to solve many of the common issues with nylon 3D printing for the reason as the create plate is cooling down, the adhesion bond becomes effortless. The user is and so able-bodied to remove their print easily.

Retailing at $19.95, it’s packaged in two-ounce containters with a foam applicator, and can be on display at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing, ATX West, Electronics West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, MD&M West, and Quality Expo in Anaheim, CA of February 9-11th.

And in case we require to point this out, Airwolf 3D is in addition quite well-known as a 3D printing developer—and one that we follow frequently, which include a new story on the release of their AXIOM 2 printing device. Headquartered in Costa Mesa, all of their complexware is generated in their 12,000 sq. ft. facility there. They unquestionably recommend usage of the Wolfbite adhesive with their lineup of AXIOM 3D printing equipment, that contribute a four print bed leveling process and automatic calibration. Users can find it’s a winning combination in addition with their AstroPrint software, that is a cloud-based slicing and printing device management process.axiom_2

”The AXIOM’s full enclosure provides a stable-bodied printing environment that protects the 3D print of fluctuations in temperature that can ruin sizeable-bodied prints,” says Dr. Micic. “When combined with the AXIOM’s fully enclosed print chamber, Wolfbite NITRO enable-bodieds users to print sizeable-bodied parts in nylon that were previously only possible in a few of the many expensive industrial 3D printing equipment on the market.”

And if you requireed additional encouragement to check out the AXIOM, a few amazing news was only released in these times they have only been selected as a finalist for the Golden Mousetrap Award in the category of Materials & Assembly, 3D-Printing & Rapid Prototyping, Materials, Tools & Services.

“We are humbled by this award and for the AXIOM to be honored by our pro peers,” said Wolf. “We took a clean sheet of paper and set out to solve the issues that users have in operating PC 3D printing equipment. The conceptualization, create and testing took us approximately two years to get ideal and we may not be additional happy with the outcomes.”

“AXIOM contributes higher resolution, additional material capabilities and advantageous ease-of-use than printing equipment costing additional than three times the price. We are grateful the committee recognizes all the complex work, energy and technology that went into producing the AXIOM a success.”

The Golden Mousetrap Awards are sponsored by UBM Canon. Winners can be announced in a live ceremony on February 9, 2016, in conjunction with Pacific Design & Manufacturing, ATX West, Electronics West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, MD&M West, and Quality Expo in Anaheim.
