Smooth TPU 95A material by Markforged to make flexible parts with 3D printing
TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) is a rubber-like material suitable for the production of flexible and impact-resistant parts.
Because of its characteristics, it lends itself to the production of parts such as gaskets, shock absorbers, hoses, and transmission belts.
Smooth TPU 95A, the new filament from Markforged, makes it possible to obtain parts that have the same functionality as parts made with traditional systems, but offers the great advantage of executing even small custom and on-demand designs quickly and without additional costs.
Classic production methods of flexible materials normally require long lead times, high investment and numerous processing steps, making them feasible only for large quantities.
Smooth TPA 95A, on the other hand, by greatly simplifying the process allows these parts to be made even for prototypes or when the required quantities are minimal.
- Impact resistance
- Elongation at break of 500%
- Shore A hardness of 95
- High surface quality
- Good mechanical deformability
- Replacement of traditional manufacturing
High-quality flexible and impact-resistant finished parts in low volumes
Design validation prototypes before going into or scaling up production
Transmission belts and bands
Wheels and Treads
Smooth TPU also makes it easy to 3D print flexible parts
