by Orion AM
An advanced industrial additive manufacturing system
for 3D printing high-performance polymers
with Thermal Radiation Heating
to achieve superior strength.
The Orion AM A-Series
An Industrial Additive Manufacturing System for 3D printing with high-performance polymers like PEEK, ULTEM and PPSU. The process utilizes the patent-pending Thermal Radiation Heating Technology developed by Orion AM to fuse the printed layers together. This results in industrial grade parts with nearly injection molding strength.
Tensile strength PEEK
Study - Z orientation
Orion AM’s technology efficiently heats the print from all directions up to 300 °C, thus increasing the inter-layer bonding and improving mechanical strength.
Engineered for Industrial Additive Manufacturing of parts with high performance polymers like PEEK, ULTEM, PPSU and more.
Orion’s patent pending Thermal Radiation Heating technology enhances interlayer bonding at least 5x, achieving more uniform strength.
Print up to 8x faster with less machinery, lower operating time and lower capital investment. Reduce waste and operating costs by 95% compared to SLS.
A new approach to AM
Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) suffers from weak interlayer bonding, delamination and warping because the material cools down after being deposited. A heated chamber usually heats the air, but Orion AM's Thermal Radiation Heating heats the material!
With Thermal Radiation the heat penetrates through the material, allowing the layers to truly fuse together. This results in parts that are more uniform in strength, more dense and stronger.
Orion's technology resolves the anisotropic nature of FFF 3D printing, even for difficult to print aerospace-grade materials like PEEK and PEI. This results in nearly isotropic properties.
Without Thermal Radiation Heating
- Visible Layers
- Porous Structures
- Poor Interlayer Bonding
- Low Strength, Anisotropic
Suitable for Prototypes only!
With Thermal Radiation Heating
- No Visible Layers
- Dense, Homogenous Structures
- Good Interlayer Bonding
- High Strength, Isotropic
Suitable for End-Use Production Parts!
Designed for Advanced Materials
Our Patent-Pending Thermal Radiation Heating technology gives you the most out of these advanced materials by thermally welding the printed layers together, making them more durable and usable as end-use parts.
