MetalFuse Raise3D

Raise3D Benelux presents new industrial metal printing solution at TechniShow.

At the end of last year Raise3D announced the new MetalFuse metal printing solution and the RMF500 for large format fibre reinforced printing. During TechniShow 2022, which this year takes place from 30/08 to 02/09, both printing solutions will be shown to the Benelux public for the first time. The Flam3D member can be found in Hall 11, stand 11.C008.

MetalFuse offers a complete in-house solution for 3D printing of small batches of metal parts. The technology works with BASF Forward AM’s Ultrafuse® metal filaments and offers companies full design freedom at a low cost of ownership. The complete set consists of the Forge1 3D printer, the D200-E debinder and the S200-C sinterer, combined with a special edition of IdeaMaker that is compatible with MIM equipment.

The advantages of MetalFuse include low overhead costs and the ability to perform batch production. MetalFuse saves more energy and is more environmentally friendly compared to processes like CNC and SLM (Selective Laser Melting). MetalFuse uses the catalytic debonding process, which leads to a 60% reduction in processing time and an increase in the density of the part to 97% of the density of wrought iron.

The RMF500 will also be presented for the first time at TechniShow by Raise3D. This machine is specialised in printing complex parts with a high strength-to-weight ratio using fibre-reinforced thermoplastics. The RMF500 has a very high accuracy, consistent extrusion, high print speed and a huge build volume of 500x500x500mm. Thanks to these features, the RMF500 can produce large batches or parts in a very efficient way.

The RMF500 is specifically designed to achieve the maximum cost efficiency in terms of material performance versus process cost. A thorough optimisation of the system design, results in a machine with much lower energy consumption.
