FDM Nylon CF10 (Carbon Fiber)

Production-grade Thermoplastic

FDM® Nylon-CF10 is a strong carbon fiber-filled material that is stiff and chemically resistant. Available on the Stratasys F190™CR and F370®CR 3D printers.

Typical applications include Metal forming dies, Press brakes, End effectors, Soft jaws, Alignment and assembly fixtures, Clamping tools, and Drill guides.

FDM® Nylon-CF10 is a composite material combining a blended nylon polymer with 10% chopped carbon fiber (by weight), enhancing the material’s strength and rigidity.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.

FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.

With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.

Gain new possibilities

TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.

Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
