The Impact of 3D Printing Process Parameters on the Dielectric Properties of High Permittivity Composites – Article Released on Nov 5th
Premix experts, RF Technology Manager, Dr. Jan Järveläinen and R&D Manager, Dr. Ville Mylläri, were involved in a study determining the optimum printing strategy and settings for high permittivity PREPERM® 3D filaments. The article was a co-operation between Premix and Loughborough University and was released on November 5th in Designs.
Fused filament fabrication (FFF) is a well-known and greatly accessible additive manufacturing technology which is used in the prototyping and manufacture of radiofrequency componentry. The technology uses composite thermoplastic materials that possess superior properties compared to standard materials for 3D printing. However, due to their nature and synthesis, these materials are often a great challenge to print successfully which in turn affects their microwave properties.
- To get the most out of the thermoplastic materials, we need to pay careful attention to the printing strategy and parameters. In this study, we focused on the impact of the main process parameters: printing speed, hatch spacing, layer height and material infill, states Ville Mylläri.
- We are very happy to have this collaborate with Loughborough University and to be able to provide this kind of very useful information about how to use PREPERM® 3D filaments in practice, Jan Järveläinen continues.
