ChemCubed (Chem3) develops custom chemistries for piezo-head additive manufacturing. ChemCubed’s technology is centered around nano-composite materials for jetting by means of common, commercial, piezo-effect inkjet “additive process” 3D printing equipment. These jettable nano-composite materials are application specific, embodying customer-specified physical, electrical, thermal or mechanical properties.  Chemcubed has materials for inkjet head and SLA printers.

ChemCubed has also developed materials such as highly conductive ink for low sintering temperatures and a corresponding method of printing electrical conduits, while printing a 3D structure. ChemCubed is introducing the next generation in UV LED flatbed inkjet printers. Electro-UV3D printers allow users to effortlessly print conductive liquids, support and insulating materials The printer can cure resins with different material properties building objects both flexible and stiff, as well as conductive conduits simultaneously. It is also possible to print directly onto substrates such as FR4 boards, making circuit boards, or on Kapton® tapes for flexible electronics.

What causes annoying snags, bubbles and voids in layer when printing?
➢ Dust and other foreign airborne particles contaminate filament when produced
➢ Humidity (moisture) in factory air soaked up by filament when produced
➢ Filament not perfectly round and haphazardly wound on spool tangles up stopping filament feed or clogging nozzle
➢ Filament produced with up to 30% recycled PLA reducing consistency and strength

How do you fix it?
➢ Produce filaments in a Clean Room
➢ Control Humidity in Clean Room so filament is produced with less than 1000 parts per million
➢ Make filament perfectly round with +/- .02 mm diameter so filament can be machine wound layer by layer which guarantees no tangles in filament
➢ Filament made with only virgin USDA approved color powder and PLA
➢ Sign up for free spool at Booth 111
