R.D. Abbott Company, Inc. (RDAbbott) to showcase its latest addition to their technical services
portfolio, a Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) 3D printer, in M.R. Mold & Engineering’s Booth W4391at NPE2018: The Plastics Show in Orlando, Florida
This revolutionary, patent‐pending LAM 3D Printer was developed in collaboration with German RepRapGmbH, a leading German manufacturer of 3D printers, and Dow Performance Silicones. German RepRap’s LAM platform combined with Dow Performance Silicones’ 3D Printable EVOLV3D™LC 3335
Liquid Silicone Rubber is potentially capable of printing functional prototypes and enabling small
manufacturing trials of complex parts. Further, the material’s properties closely match those of moldedliquid silicone rubber, allowing an easy transfer into injection molding processes for high‐volume manufacturing.
