Polymertal: 3D Printed Metal Plated End Use Parts
3D printed metal-plated production can bring weight, cost and design flexibility advantages over existing solid-metal approaches.
Discover how Polymertal metal-plated an aerospace fuel tank 3D printed on a BigRep ONE to create a product which may replace current solid-aluminium designs. This is one of many possible industrial applications of this technique for end-use production.
In the film learn:
• How the hybrid Fuel Tank was produced – the large, complex design was 3D-printed on a BigRep ONE and then aluminium-plated by Polymertal
• What benefits 3D-printed metal-plated parts like this have over traditional all metal parts – including reduced weight, reduced materials requirements and new design possibilities
• About the plans to test the fuel tank installed on an unmanned aerial vehicle
Firms across industries use BigRep’s large-format industrial 3D printer technology to reduce costs, develop better products and get to market quicker.
