3D Printing company in the Netherlands
We are a 3D printing company that offers 3D printing services for both individuals and enterprises. With the help of Bond3D, you can start prototyping and testing in just a couple of weeks – at a fraction of the cost of regular FDM printing.
Bond3D has been in operation since 2014. The company offers a range of 3D printing services and is active in the additive manufacturing (AM) industry and has invented and developed a revolutionary technology for printing special performance plastics.
Today, Bond3D has a team of 70 professionals in competencies spanning in sales and marketing, engineering, application development, production, and logistics to offer a full suite of services for every company.
In recent years, the use of 3D printers has increased dramatically. Our technology can be used to create objects of all shapes and sizes, from manifolds to IR Camera housings. 3D printing is an excellent way to quickly prototype ideas or create one-of-a-kind items.
Bond3D is one of the leading providers of 3D printing services in the Netherlands. The company has a wide range of experience and offers high-quality, strong and voidless prints with exceptional service. Bond3D also offers a number of other services such as design consultation, re-design and testing.
Types of 3D Printing
3D printing technology has come a long way in recent years, and there are now a variety of different types of 3D printers available on the market. Each type of 3D printer has its own advantages and disadvantages, and is best suited for specific types of applications.
Bond3D’s unique technology combines all the great properties of the PEEK base material with the benefits of additive manufacturing. BOND3D creates parts that have isotropic strength in all directions and are 100% voidless. That means making high-end products with fewer components, less weight, and less waste. For the first time, printed parts are certified for use in critical applications.
Fused Deposition Modeling Printer
The most common type of 3D printer is the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) printer. FDM printers work by melting a plastic filament and depositing it layer by layer to create a three-dimensional object. FDM printers are typically lower in cost than other types of 3D printers, and are well suited for creating prototypes and small batches of parts.
Another popular type of 3D printer is the Stereolithography (SLA) printer. SLA printers use an ultraviolet laser to cure a photopolymer resin, layer by layer, to create a three-dimensional object. SLA printers produce high-quality parts with fine details and smooth surfaces. However, SLA printers are typically more expensive than FDM printers.
Selective Laser Sintering printing
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is another type of 3D printing technology that is growing in popularity. SLS works by using a laser to fuse together small particles of plastic, metal, or ceramic powder into a solid mass. SLS can be used to create parts with complex geometries and is ideal for creating prototypes or low-volume production runs. However, like SLA printing, SLS can be costly
Benefits of 3d Printing
Although 3D printing technology has been around for decades, it has only recently begun to gain mainstream appeal. One of the key factors driving this growth is the decreasing cost of the 3D printed parts and the improvement of the technoogy. Another is the ever-increasing variety of applications for 3D printing, which now includes everything from medical implants to cable clamps to parts for the high-tech industry.
One of the most popular applications for 3D printing is creating prototypes or small batches of products. This can be a huge time-saver for businesses, as it allows them to test out new designs quickly and cheaply without having to invest in expensive tooling or manufacturing equipment.
Another benefit of 3D printing is that it enables customization and personalization on a mass scale. For example, companies can now print custom parts for specific high-tech applications or create unique items for use in specific machines.
Finally, 3D printing is also being used more and more in the manufacturing process itself. In some cases, entire products can now be printed using additive manufacturing techniques. This allows manufacturers to create complex objects with fewer steps and less wasted material, which can lead to significant cost savings.
What type of material does Bond3D use?
When designing complex parts for demanding applications, you want to have the best of both worlds. A material of superior quality and the design freedom offered by additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, to achieve optimal functionality.
For good reasons, PEEK may be the material of your choice, but up till now this came with a downside. Printing PEEK is far from easy, because of its high viscosity in the molten state and its semi-crystalline nature, which induces shrink upon solidification. A common reflex of process developers then is to adapt the material to the available printing technology.
