Solvay Performance Polyamides says the company's latest improvements of its Sinterline solutions can further accelerate the industry’s transformation, featuring processability and high mechanical performance.

Among the exhibits Solvay Performance Polyamides presented at Formnext recently were the latest improvements of its Sinterline solutions, which can further accelerate the industry’s transformation. Upgraded Sinterline Technyl polyamide 6 (PA6) powders is said to feature easy processability while achieving high mechanical performances.

“The industry has realised the full potential of additive manufacturing and is moving from prototyping to serial production,” says Dominique Giannotta, Sinterline Additive Manufacturing Leader at Solvay. He noted that to accelerate this transformation, solutions need to be developed to deliver real functional prototypes, which are closer in performance to injection moulding parts. Sinterline, according to Giannotta, enables affordable customisation of functional 3D-printed parts that could not previously be manufactured without great expense, time and material wastage. The performance of parts is now improved thanks to HUB by Sinterline, an advanced service platform which includes predictive simulation capabilities specifically designed for additive manufacturing.

Solvay says that the Sinterline Technyl PA6 powder range yields the mechanical and thermal performance required to make 3D-printing parts a compelling option for functional prototyping and low to medium volume production. Based on a patented polymer and a specific formulation, which provides a robust and wide processing window, Sinterline powders are entirely suitable for a large range of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) printers adapted for high-temperature polymers.

Unveiled at Formnext 2019, HUB is a unique platform supporting the Sinterline product offering with advanced services dedicated to 3D printing parts. HUB connects together MMI Technyl Design1 predictive simulation for 3D printing which models mechanical performances with a high level of accuracy — a Sinterline functional prototyping service and application testing centre (APT) to provide customer innovation with enhanced capabilities and synergies for efficient design and optimised performances.
