3D additive manufacturing for mass production is a focus to exceed our customers expectations

Dedienne Multiplasturgy® Group has always worked in a continuous stream of innovations. In 1995, the Group acquired the first Stratasys machine for the manufacture of 3D prototypes. In this context, the Group is in the process of creating today a complete “Atelier Dedienne 3D” for additive production-oriented manufacturing in mass production.

This investment represents more than €1.5 million. In the near future, other machines will complete the Atelier Dedienne 3D, in order to meet all the needs of our customers in terms of materials and functionality.

In April 2019, a first machine HP Jet Fusion 4200 was put into service, allowing production series in additive manufacturing based on Rilsan® Polyamide 11, made by Arkema from sustainable castor oil. The Rilsan® 11 polyamide powders are a 100% bio sourced high-performance polyamide.

Rilsan® Fine Polyamide Powder Parts offer superior mechanical properties whilst limiting weight when compared to polyamide 12, it also offers excellent shock resistance superior ductility and better elasticity characteristics.

Dedienne Multiplasturgy® Groupis also THE first French manufacturer to equip itself with the EOS P 810 laser sintering machine for EOS HT-23 material (based on Kepstan® PEKK, Extreme Polymer from Arkema, reinforced with Carbon Fibers).

In October, the Atelier Dedienne 3D will install the EOS P 810 machine to produce functional parts and components for delivery worldwide, in EOS HT-23 parts, an EOS powder made from Kepstan® PEKK, the extreme polymer supplied by Arkema, reinforced with carbon fibers.

EOS P 810 is the first laser sintering solution for mass production of functional parts demanding high temperature PEKK polymer functional parts.

With a chamber size of 700 x 380 x 380 mm, EOS P 810 allows fast and economical production of high-performance techno polymer parts directly from CAD data without the need for tooling.

EOS HT-23 parts offer high strength at low weight and the ability to withstand temperatures well above 200°C.

All parts can also be metallized to provide electrical continuity or serve as electromagnetic shielding, technologies that are mastered and implemented in-house by the Dedienne Multiplasturgy® Group.

These new technologies are perfectly aligned with Dedienne Multiplasturgy® Groups’ focus on providing solutions for lighter parts and metal substitution.
