B-Right Technology Increases Z-Strength

Brightlands Materials Center has developed a proprietary technology to increase mechanical
z-strength of 3D printed parts produced by extrusion additive manufacturing, e.g. FFF technology. This is done by a process improvement that in principle is independent of the type of printer or material used. It has been tested on polyamide 6 reinforced with 30 wt% glass fiber in a German RepRap X500 Fused Filament Fabrication printer and an almost three times increase in tensile strength in z-direction was obtained.

The evaluation and transfer of the B-Right technology is available for our customers.
