Cincinnati Incorporated (CI), a U.S.-based, build-to-order machine tool manufacturer based out of Harrison, Ohio, announces a distribution partnership with BASF 3D Printing Solutions (BASF 3DPS). CI’s high-temperature Small Area Additive Manufacturing (SAAM HT) machine will now offer BASF 3DPS’s ABS plastic, carbon fiber PET and recycled PET materials.

Ultrafuse ABS is created from acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene polymers. It has a strong, flexible and heat-resistant nature, according to the companies. It can be used for those looking to manufacture low-cost prototypes, or anyone who wants to create plastic products with ease.

Ultrafuse PET CF15 from BASF 3DPS combines processability and low moisture uptake with strength and rigidity. With this PET material, users can 3D print new components that stay functional under high mechanical and thermal loads. It’s suited for the automotive industry, for jigs and fixtures and any applications with humid operating environments.

The SAAM HT machine will also offer Ultrafuse rPET from BASF 3DPS. 3D printing provides a big chance to add sustainability to manufacturing methods. This recycled PET looks and prints just like virgin material, and much like its PET alternative, rPET capably handles jig and fixture applications, automotive work and prototypes.

These three materials add new manufacturing possibilities to the SAAM HT.

“With our materials profiles, customers can open the box, download the profiles and have success without having to tinker too much,” says Chris Haid, general manager of CI’s Additive business group.

ABS, PET and rPET will join ULTEM, PEEK, polycarbonate and any thermoplastic up to 500°C as material options on the SAAM HT.
