What Is Fused Deposition Modelling?

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is a plastic extrusion process offering a wide range of industrial thermoplastics

When considering industrial additive manufacturing 3D printing for prototyping and manufacturing applications, FDM technology has proven itself to be a reliable and dependable performer for more than thirty years.

Ideally suited to industrial applications requiring strength, robustness and high rigidity, FDM is the go-to technology for producing light-weight production tooling such as jigs and fixtures, robotic end-of-arm tools, forming tools, drill and alignment guides, test fixtures and CMM fixtures

Whether used for production tooling applications or 3d printing in product design projects, FDM parts can be relied upon to be strong, accurate and highly stable
