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.
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.
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.
To celebrate the Grand Duke’s
Official Birthday we did some amazing X-models for the Ministry of Foreign and
European Affairs. Known from the new signature and slogan of Luxembourg
“Let’s make it happen“.
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.
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
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.
