PC-ABS

Production-grade Thermoplastic

PC-ABS (polycarbonate-ABS) is one of the most widely used industrial thermoplastics. PC-ABS offers the most desirable properties of both materials – the superior strength and heat resistance of PC and the flexibility of ABS.

PC-ABS blends are commonly used in automotive, electronics and telecommunications applications. PC-ABS parts are best suited to conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and production parts.

The NASA Mars rover includes several FDM parts printed in PC-ABS.

NASA depends on ABS, PC-ABS and other polycarbonate materials for 3D-printed parts on the Mars rover. FDM production-grade thermoplastics like PC-ABS produce parts that are lightweight but durable enough for rugged environments.

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.
