This water pump part is a perfect example of why 3D printing is beneficial. The product was no longer available on the market. Therefore, the only option was remodeling it as a 3D‑model and 3D printing it. The new part is printed in Nylon (PA12) using Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) and dyed black.
This holder is used to attach a sensor to a pole. The original part consists of 3 individual pieces hold together with screws and bolts.
AMSOL made several prototypes to: merge the individual pieces, simplify the design, check the functionality, reduce the size and cost.
A series of 300 holder is being produced, printed in Nylon (PA12) using Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) and dyed black.

Our team produced a series of Jet Nozzles for the EEW company (Energy from Waste). These jet nozzles are being installed into a waste incinerator to clear the dust from hydraulic cylinders.
The prototypes in Nylon (PA12) using Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) allowed to efficiently and economically test the geometry and fit of the jet nozzle.
Due to the extreme temperature in which the jet nozzle must operate, the final limited series is produced in high-quality Stainless Steel 1.4404 using Selective Laser Melting (SLM).
AMSOL designed a strap to comfortably wear the protection masks provided by the Luxembourgish government. The strap is 3D printed in Nylon (PA12) with Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology. As a result of its flexibility the strap can adapt to any shape of head. The strings of the mask can be attached to the strap at two different positions.
In this way the face mask fits snugly on your head.

With its dimensions of 36x25x26cm the Apateq Module is one of the largest AMSOL models printed in one piece. It is a scaled model of a wastewater treatment system.
AMSOL’s challenge was to adapt and simplify the product and the files to make it suitable for 3D printing. The module is hand-painted in order to provide the best finishing quality.
As a result, Apateq has the means to showcase to clients at exhibitions how their product works, making the model a very effective demonstration tool.
The coronavirus pandemic causes a shortage on personal protective equipment for health care professionals.
With the help of our Luxembourgish industrial partners, such as GCL Technologies and Lettrage Reding, we decided to step in and support our local authorities in fighting the COVID-19.
The provided face shields are designed to protect the health care professionals, who treat the patients in critical condition. The shield is fixed on the forehead, protects the entire face and keeps the caregivers safe. This is an important measure to safeguard the capacity of the health care system.
The face shields, designed by Prusa, are being 3D printed in Nylon (PA12) using Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) Technology. As a result, our face shields can be sterilized without losing its shape, flexibility or function.
The face shields were donated to the Luxembourgish Ministry of Health and Army.
On Nov 2017 a client came to us with a quite short list of requirements of a high chair for children. The concept should be transportable, lightweight, compact when dissembled and suitable for babies and toddlers.
There are two kinds of travel high chairs on the market: those who need to be fixed on a chair or table and those who can stand by themselves. The first ones have a more or less decent size but do not fit all chairs and tables. The second ones fit every situation but are mostly clumsy and heavy. Both of them can only be used by children who are able to sit by themselves. Our focus was to create a high chair which would allow families to be flexible in every situation such as visiting restaurants or other family members who are not equipped with a sitting solution for small children or babies.
The concept is the first one to stand by itself and have a decent size once it is dissembled. It even comes with a foldable Baby-Inlay, so that it can be used for newborns and toddlers by setting them into a healthy laying position.
The telescopic legs can be pulled out to their maximum length to achieve the height of a common table, although it can be fixed in every other preferable height. Quick clamps allow a fast installation of the high chair. The foldable Baby-Inlay can be put into the sitting area or, when not used, folded together and fixed under the seat.
According to feedbacks from our first users the travel high chair is a good allrounder when it comes to having a sitting solution for children. It’s ability to be a stand alone high chair does give you the opportunity to install/unfold it in situations you may need it. You can even use it when the chair is in it’s lowest position.
The sitting area dimensions are a bit bigger than in common high chairs, it gives small children more freedom to play around while sitting, also it is crucial for the needed space of the inlay for newborns.
The 3D model of the cells has been created based on drawings and microscopic pictures.
After the render of the 3D model has been approved by the client, the top and bottom layer have been 3D printed in nylon (MJF PA12) and painted by hand to reproduce the original cells as accurate as possible.
Placed in a custom made acrylic glass frame and filled with jelly the model was ready to be presented on the LIST TECH DAY 2019.
Nylon PA12 (MJF) with its excellent mechanical properties and detailed surface resolution, is exceptionally versatile and the ideal material for a wide range of applications.
The material has a high impact resistance, due to different geometries it can either be flexible or rigid. The printing technology gives you extensive freedom of design.
By using HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology, your parts have a higher density, lower porosity and are watertight compared to parts produced with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). Furthermore the part have homogeneous (isotropic) mechanical properties.
Typical use and our use cases
Complex models, prototypes, architectural models, industrial parts, spare parts, housings
The 3D print process begins by laying down a thin layer (0,08 mm) of nylon powder on a build platform. Next a print head passes the surface while jetting a fusing agent, where the powder should fuse. Also a detailing agent is applied at the boundaries of the parts to produce sharp and smooth edges. In order to fuse the selected areas, fusing lamps pass the surface. The build platform moves down and the next thin layer is being applied.
