Graphene 3D Lab has added a new functional magnetic filament to its product line which will allow printing of 3D projects with components that are attracted to magnetic fields.
The filament – which is ideal for producing sensors and mechanical actuators and motors by additive manufacturing – is available for purchase in 1.75mm diameter, 350 gram spools at Amazon and the company’s on-line store at www.blackmagic3D.com.
“It has always been the objective of Graphene 3D to create new opportunities for 3D printing. With every functional filament we introduce to the market, the types of 3D projects that can be successfully printed expands exponentially,” said Elena Polyakova, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D.
“As this filament is ideally suited to switches, sensors and actuators, we also expect this new functionality will challenge more traditional manufacturers to examine incorporating more 3D printing technology into their manufacturing processes.”
Daniel Stolyarov, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D, said the company was simultaneously working on several new functional filaments which are expected to be introduced later this year.
“We expect 2016 to be a significant year for Graphene 3D in terms of introducing new functional filaments,” added Mr Stolyarov.
“We have several new functional filaments in the development pipeline and we expect to release several new filaments throughout the year. Availability of a large selection of functional 3D printing materials enlarges the capabilities of additive manufacturing allowing you to print projects that will only be limited by your imagination.”
Graphene 3D Lab is a renowned developer and manufacturer of proprietary graphene-based nanocomposite materials for various types of 3D printing, including fused filament fabrication.
The company is also involved in manufacturing and selling graphene materials and nanocomposite enhanced polymers through its wholly owned subsidiary, Graphene Labs, as well as in the design, manufacture, and marketing of 3D printers and related products for domestic and international customers.
The Graphene 3D facility is located in Calverton, NY and is equipped with material processing and analytical equipment.
