From design to mass production.
With the new Additive division PROMEL wants to present itself on the market as a PARTNER able to cover, with its own skills, from the “Design for Additive” planning to the realization of the prototype or small production series.
The new PROMEL division is able to use various technologies that are currently consolidated and active on the market: HP Multi Jet Fusion – EOS Selective Laser Sintering – MARKFORGED Continuous Fiber – STRATASYS Fused Deposition Modeling, which allow us to create functional and aesthetic prototypes up to even to mass production of finished parts.
The increasingly complex requests from designers
They pushed us to approach the additive manufacturing revolution. The latter differs from traditional processing technologies because it does not remove material from the blank but obtains very complex three-dimensional details through the progressive deposit of layers of material, eliminating the geometric constraints of traditional printing methods.
The internal synergy with our mechanical workshop allows us to work the piece via CNC to obtain the tolerances required by the specific application with considerably reduced production times compared to standard production and with often comparable mechanical characteristics.
PROMEL is able to guarantee its own high quality standards
also for the parts produced with Additive technology thanks to its Integrated Quality System, the internal metrological laboratory and the support of an external metallographic laboratory.
The available materials vary according to the available technology, in general we can create parts both in plastic and metal materials on which it is possible to create multiple surface finishes based on the specific needs of the customer such as for example: Sandblasting, Painting, Polishing, etc…
TPU is a thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer. It is elastic, flexible and with a high degree of elongation at break. It absorbs impacts, dampens vibrations and offers excellent resistance to abrasion and high temperatures.
It offers excellent elasticity and flexibility as well as abrasion and cut resistance and good resistance to oils and greases.
PA12 is a thermoplastic polymer known commercially as “nylon 12”. It offers high mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance. It is bio-compatible and can be used in multiple functional and aesthetic applications.
Nylon has very interesting mechanical properties, it welds well to itself making the “layers” of additive manufacturing on the surface less visible. Nylon requires high molding temperatures, above 250°, and is very sensitive to humidity, requiring more attention than other polymers during treatment.”
