Sensor holder series production

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.

Chrome car emblem

The company Docler Holding tasked AMSOL with the 3D print of their logo to be used as an emblem on their cars. The logo is adapted to make it suitable for 3D printing. It is printed using the Stereolithography (SLA) technology for obtaining a smooth surface. The individual parts received a nickel-plated finish to obtain a stunning reflective result.

Stainless Steel Jet Nozzle

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).

Face Mask Strap

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.

Face shields for the Luxembourgish Ministry of Health and Army

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.

CFL cabinet lock replacement part

Our client, CFL (National Association of Luxembourg Railways) wanted to replace the broken cabinet locks of their locomotives.

These locks were not in production anymore. We redesigned the lock and with the advantages of 3D printing technology and more specific SLM (selective laser melting) of aluminium powder, we managed to redesign and produce a small series of the cabinet lock.

Without the advantages of 3D printing, CFL would have been forced to replace the entire cabinet, which means they would have spent more time and money to get the same result.

Material introduction: Nylon PA12 MJF

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

Technology

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.
