Fused Granulate Fabrication

Pellet materials for more solutions

Engineering-grade materials for pellet printing

Fused granulate fabrication is a 3D printing method in which granular plastics are melted and fed through a nozzle onto a platform. The nozzle can be changed to output more or less plastic and at different speeds. These variables can mean faster printing speeds or finer details. After each layer is printed, the printing platform is lowered, allowing the next layer to be added. A supporting structure can be printed when needed.

Post processing of fused granulate fabrication printed pieces allow for a smooth surface. Ideal for large scale applications, fused granulate fabrication printers have been created to print products several meters high, wide and long.

Covestro continues to develop industrial thermoplastics to add to our portfolio, creating more solutions for various application needs and requirements.
