Affordable PEEK 3D printing is here with Intamsys Industrial 3D Printers

3D Printing Solutions, an Australian owned and operated 3D Printing Retailer today announced their partnership with INTAMSYS to bring their industrial range of high performance FUNMAT 3D Printers to the Australian market.

INTAMSYS (Abbreviation of INTelligent Additive Manufacturing SYStems) is an Industrial-Grade 3D Printer manufacturer, trusted globally by customers from aerospace, medical, manufacturing and education industries with global partners the likes of Airbus, ABB, POVOS, UK Atomic Energy Authority and Stanford University. 

The company’s state-of-the-art FUNMAT HT and FUNMAT PRO HT (FUNMAT is derived from FUNctional MATerials) are the latest high performance series 3D printers engineered by INTAMSYS for high performance thermoplastic 3D printing at affordable prices. The FUNMAT HT has a build volume of 260 x 260 x 260mm while the substantially larger FUNMAT PRO HT has a large build volume of 450 x 450 x 600mm. The FUNMAT HT and FUNMAT PRO HT are one of the few 3D Printers in the world capable of PEEK 3D Printing. PEEK displays high mechanical strength, toughness, chemical resistance and self-extinguishing properties, making it the ideal solution for demanding applications in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, advanced research and medical industries. Until now, very few 3D printing systems have been capable of printing PEEK due to its high printing temperature (360 - 400°C).

The FUNMAT HT and PRO HT are equipped with a full metal hot end (up to 450°C), heated build plate (up to 160°C) and a fully enclosed heated chamber which actively heats the internal build volume. The FUNMAT HT can maintain an internal temperature up to 90°C with the FUNMAT PRO HT increasing this max temperature up to 120°C, ensuring reliable PEEK / Ultem printing and warp-free ABS and PC 3D Prints. 

Easily changeable 'normal' and 'high temperature' extruders ensure customers can print a truly versatile range of open filament materials including PEEK, Ultem, PPSU, Nylon (PA), PolyCarbonate (PC), PC Alloys, ABS, Carbon fiber-Filled, Metal-Filled, Fiberglass-Filled, ASA, PETG, ESD-Safe, HIPS, TPU, PLA, PVA and more.  

Over the past few years we have seen Australian Businesses actively move from discussing the benefits of 3D Printing and additive fabrication to now investing in these technologies to improve their business operations. With the INTAMSYS range of 3D Printers businesses and educational organisations regardless of size can invest in these high performance 3D Printers with more confidence and affordability. “ - Michael Tyson - 3D Printing Solutions CEO

3D Printing Solutions marketing manager, Matt Tyson echoes this enthusiasm commenting 

“We are really excited to work with INTAMSYS to supply their full range of Industrial-Grade 3D Printers to businesses and organizations Australia wide. Their focus towards providing a high performance printer built to withstand the demands of industry customers is truly second to none. I think we will see INTAMSYS become a recognized brand name in the industry with heavy adoption among research applications, prototyping and functional end use production.” -  Matt Tyson - 3D Printing Solutions Marketing Manager

INTAMSYS also manufacture ‘standard’ non HT variants, the FUNMAT and FUNMAT PRO. These printers are suited for professionals and education organizations who are interested in a high quality 3D Printer without the functionality to print high temperature PEEK and Ultem materials. These printers are equipped with a full metal hot end capable of reaching 280°C, heated build plate (120°C) and an insulated enclosure (The FUNMAT PRO also has active heating up to 60°C).
