Laser sintering is an additive layer manufacturing: the workpiece is built up layer by layer. The laser beam welds three-dimensional geometries even with undercuts or internal tubes. Such workpieces can not be produced in conventional mechanical milling. The components are made of polyamide PA 2200. These can stand temperatures up to 130 °C. The construction volume is 200mm x 250mm x 300mmADVANTAGES:- free design- Weight-reducing (material density 0.9 g / cm³- very good abrasion resistance- good dimensional stability (tensile strength 45 N / mm²)- suitable for the food industry (after surface treatment) FDA / HDThe following surfaces can be offered:- infiltrates black (standard)- smoothed- flocked black (standard)- PU coatedWe develop and manufacture your component together with you.Production of prototypes.
This example gripper is extremely light. With a size of about 300 x 300mm the weight is only about 300g including the Schunk quick changer! These gripping systems can perfectly be combined with sprue pickers or handling-systems with low handling weight.
The following images show components and systems which have been manufactured at AGS.
