Composite 3D Printing FDM Use Case | Gosiger Manufacturing

December 07, 2022

F370CR a FDM composite 3D printer by Stratasys enabled faster design and manufacturing for Gosiger.

The 3D printed part catcher (gray) is attached to the lathe’s lower turret.

About the Manufacturer

Gosiger is a leading machine tool distributor and manufacturing systems provider, building best-in-class solutions for leading machine tools and accessories. The company provides access to hundreds of qualified technicians and engineers with systems and controls to meet the spectrum of manufacturing and automation needs, including installation, training, maintenance, replacement parts, and technical support.

The Manufacturing Challenge

During the machining process in a two-turret lathe, two halves of a finished hose clamp are cut off from the raw material bar. Without a way to capture these parts, the two halves would drop to the machine’s floor and be carried out of the chip conveyor. A traditional solution involved the creation of an expensive and geometrically limiting parts catcher secured to the machine body. However, this would limit the travel of the lower turret, restrict its functionality and negate its intended purpose of increasing machine efficiency.

These soft jaws were 3D printed with FDM® Nylon-CF10, a composite nylon polymer.

The Composite 3D Printing Material

FDM Nylon-CF10 is a nylon carbon fiber filament. The base polymer is filled 10% by weight with chopped carbon, which produces a composite material 67% stronger and 190% stiffer than the nylon base material. FDM Nylon-CF10 is also possesses good chemical resistance, toughness and abrasion resistance.
