FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication)

FFF - Fused Filament Fabrication

Filament printing technology, also known as FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication), allows a plastic filament to pass through an extruder which, brought to a high temperature, makes the material fluid and deposits it on the printing surface according to a pattern of lines that make up the layers that are superimposed on the previous ones.

The current "must" for this technology is the double extruder which allows to combine technical materials or a technical material with a water-soluble support material for easy removal of the same supports in water.

Common applications:

  • Functional prototypes for form and function tests.
  • Aesthetic Prototypes.
  • Low-volume production of end-use parts.
