Rehovot, Israel - For companies who need a three-dimensional physical model of a rubber prototype, and need it to be rugged and stretchy, Objet has a solution.
The new material works with the professional models of the company's Eden 3-Dimensional Printing Systems, the Eden500V and Eden350V. According to the manufacturers the new material -Â called TangoPlus, FullCure930 - offers, "unmatched combination of mechanical properties that sets a new standard in rubber-like performance. At 218%, the elongation at break of TangoPlus is more than double that of any other rapid prototyping material available on the market. It is highly resistant to tearing and has a Ross Flex measurement in excess of 150,000. Thus, TangoPlus offers outstanding resistance to deterioration, making it ideal for models that are likely to be exposed to long use or rough handling."
The company continues, "TangoPlus FullCure930 is a semi-translucent elastomer and builds on the success of the market-proven TangoGray and TangoBlack materials, which also offer specific levels of elasticity. With the addition of TangoPlus to the Tango family, Objet now offers the widest range of rubber-like materials in the rapid prototyping and 3-D modeling market.
Objet Geometries Ltd., a pioneer in photopolymer jetting, develops, manufactures and globally markets ultra-thin-layer, high-resolution 3-Dimensional printing systems and materials that utilise PolyJet Polymer Jetting technology, to print ultra-thin 16-micron layers, gradually building to create three-dimensional prototype objects.
