The example of a sleeve with a printed flange and bearing points is a practical example of how several materials can be used in one application. This multi-material cuff was produced in one printing process on a Multirap M500 .
The elastic material is Multec PLA Soft 120 . To fix the component, the flexible sleeve is replaced by a high-strength flange made of Multec PLA-HT . The guide bushes are made of a sliding material .
This component is an example of how 3D printing can be used to integrate the functions of several materials in one printing process.
Assembly is eliminated, as are constructive connecting elements. Already in the component, the corresponding material connection is provided by positive locking in addition to welding .
this way, seals already integrated into the pressure part .
