Why Minifactory Ultra?

ULTIMATE STRENGTH AND QUALITY WITH 250°C HEATED CHAMBER

Glass transition temperature (Tg) is one of the most important thermophysical properties of amorphous polymers. In that temperature:

  • Polymer chains are oriented randomly and have freedom to move -> strength
  • Polymer is in structural relaxation and cools down smoothly and evenly -> dimensional stability

WITH THE MINIFACTORY ULTRA 3D PRINTER

Printing chamber temperature is close/above polymers Tg:

  • GREAT layer adhesion
  • HIGH mechanical strength
  • LOW mechanical stress
  • LOW warping / cracking

Printing chamber temperature is clearly below polymers Tg:

  • POOR layer adhesion
  • MEDIUM mechanical strength
  • HIGH mechanical stress
  • HIGH warping / cracking
