Why choose FDM 3D Printed Parts?
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) produces functional end-use parts using engineered thermoplastic materials
FDM technology leverages engineering-grade thermoplastics that are ready for harsh environments, tough testing, and stringent applications.
With over 20 years of experience providing high-performance FDM components, TriMech is your partner of choice for even the toughest projects.
Parts printed with FDM have excellent strength-to-weight ratios, thermal properties, and chemical resistance. Fine detail, or fast prints – the choice is yours.
Large build volumes and diverse material selection make this an attractive offering; highlights include materials that are ESD safe, carbon fiber filled, UL and ISO certified, as well as aerospace grade, mean that FDM is well suited for functional prototyping, tooling, manufacturing aids, and end-use parts.
What is FDM?
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology is a powerful additive manufacturing method.
FDM builds concept models, functional prototypes and end-use parts in standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics. FDM has the widest selection of industry standard thermoplastics, making it a versatile tool in the manufacturing world.
