Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), also known as fused deposition modeling (FDM), is a sinter-based 3D Printing process (3DP).
The process uses a filament as raw material that is usually fed from a spool to the print head. The heated printer extruder head deposits the material layer by layer onto the growing part.
The filament used at Element22 is a mixture of fine Titanium powder and other materials that are needed for processing, the so-called binders. After printing, the parts require debinding and a sintering process.
We use the FFF technology to create prototypes, but also low volume production for certain applications and quantities.
The Element22 Titanium Filament is also for sale, so you can print yourself. Get more information on the Element22 raw material here.
Element22 also offers the Debinding and Sintering of printed parts as a service. Get information here
