Get powder-based 3D printed PP parts from Extol

Powder-based 3D printed polypropylene (PP) parts are now available at Extol. The addition of PP expands Extol’s 3D printed powder-based materials, which already include PA12 and TPU.
We’ve received feedback that our powder-based 3D printed PP parts are performing with the toughness, ductility, and chemical resistance that customers expect from molded PP.

3D-printed TPU comes to Extol

3D-printed TPU comes to Extol

Extol now has the capability of 3D printing components out of TPU material using HP’s Multi Jet Fusion process. The ability to print strong, homogeneous structures in TPU is a game-changer over other printing technologies. Extol’s Digital Development Center now can print parts out of both PA12 and TPU.

How to determine the strength of a plastic staking joint

How to determine the strength of a plastic staking joint

Design engineers often ask us, “How strong will my staked joint be?” Usually, they’re designing a plastic assembly that needs to be staked, and they need to know how to design the part so that it will be strong enough for their application. They just want a number, like 450 N. If they know how strong one stake point will be, they can plan how many stake points they need and where to locate them. The good news is that we can estimate the answer…

We are doing it again… We are redesigning nanoSTAKE. What? Why?!
Well, this is what we do. Rather than wasting a lot of time trying to develop the perfect product and coming up short or missing the mark entirely, we work hard to get a viable product in your hands fast. We want you to see it, touch it, play with it, and tell us what should improve. That way we can make it better.
