AON3D releases new line of high-performance materials
AON3D Readyprint filaments were created in collaboration with Kimya, and are optimized for 'out-of-the-box printing'
AON3D, a high-temperature additive manufacturing solutions company, has just released AON3D Readyprint filaments – the company’s new line of high-performance materials.
“AON3D Readyprint filaments are industrial-grade materials optimized for out-of-the-box printing,” said Kevin Han, Co-founder, and Chief Product Officer of AON3D. “Our goal is to remove the hassles of sourcing, conditioning, and tuning process parameters to get high-quality results with high-performance materials.”
Since its inception in 2018, AON3D has been committed to bringing a true open-material ethos to industrial 3D printing. The company’s new line of Readyprint filaments will remove the inherent complexities of industrial open material printing without locking down configurability or costly open material license fees. According to AON3D, the process of finding quality suppliers, drying materials on arrival (which is sometimes a six-hour process that is left to customers to perform), and creating process parameters, can potentially culminate to a matter of weeks of lost productivity.
Readyprint filaments are sourced from high-quality vendors with rigorous quality management processes. The materials receive additional factory drying and are packaged in a way that they are ready to print right out of the box. Lastly, pre-configured process parameters provide a solid starting point that engineers can further optimize for desired properties such as strength, print quality, print speed, lightweighting, minimizing post-processing, and more.
Readyprint filament options include BS, ESD ABS, and Carbon Fiber ABS; ASA, HIPS, PC, PEI 9085, Amorphous PEKK, PPSU, PETG and Carbon Fiber PETG, and TPU 92A.
AON3D’s new line of Readyprint filaments is a collaboration project with Kimya, who develops materials with the world’s major chemical companies including Arkema, Solvay, and Sabic. “We are proud to start this partnership with AON3D to propose this optimized package with engineered filaments for industrial printers. This aims to make more accessible high-performance polymers with the AON3D’s platform,” said Benoit Stoeux, CEO of Kimya.
