3D Medical Expo Welcomes 3D4makers as Exhibitor
3D4makers produces filament for 3D printers. Our products vary from PLA, ABS, PETG to PEEK, PEI and PCL.
At the beginning of 2014, father and son Wille started building their own filament extruder. They decided to do this because of the growing interest in 3D printing technology, the knowledge of plastics within the company and the company network. 3D4Makers is the result from a company that primarily dealt with selling plastic raw materials. Now the 3D4Makers team consists of six members, each with their own specialties.
While building the filament extruder and testing it we found out that moisture in the filament can cause problems while printing. Moisture in the filament could also lower the quality of the printing product. 3D4Makers took this problem into account while building our filament extruder. We managed to design an extruder with a unique and waterless cooling technique.
On top of this the filament is immediately packaged in a vacuum bag after finishing the winding of the filament spool.
This production process makes the 3D4Makers filament particularly suitable for FDM and FFF 3D printers. The material has an excellent adhesion between the layers. This results in great improvement of the impact resistance, strength, durability, the printing process and “warping”. Because we use plastic that has an official food contact approval it can be used for products that store food as well.
