AIM3D GmbH, based in Rostock, Germany, reports it has relaunched following a consolidation phase and reorganisation of its shareholder structure after a management buy-out. The company has also entered into a cooperation agreement with the AM service provider Replique based in Mannheim, with the aim of making the material ULTEM™ 9085 more suitable for Additive Manufacturing.

In addition, AIM3D announced the optimisation of its patented Voxelfill process. Strength tests are reported to show that this process can overcome inhomogeneous strengths of additively manufactured components in the X, Y and Z axes, and thus coming close to conventional processes such as injection molding.

Variations of the Voxelfill strategy enable hybrid multi-material solutions with different Voxelfill materials and different materials, including within the same component. In this way, the material properties can be ‘customised’. Defined component weight, damping properties, elasticity or changes to the centre volume chambers (selective densities), component properties could be influenced in a targeted manner on the basis of FE simulations.

Clemens Lieberwirth, CTO at AIM3D, commented, “Of course, the Voxelfill process is particularly suitable for 3D printing of plastics and fibre-filled plastics, but it is also suitable for 3D printing of metal and ceramic components using the CEM process. In general, there are advantages due to the higher build speed and cross-layer filling.”
