RAPID CITY, S.D. (July 5, 2022) – B9Creations has launched an ESD-safe, UV curable resin for use on its 3D printers, powered by Mechnano’s MechT.
“Production-ready additive manufacturing solutions from Mechnano help B9 Core Series systems users move from prototyping to production with ease,” said Shon Anderson, B9Creations CEO. “ESD – Rigid provides an immense benefit to various industries where damage caused by static buildup is a major concern.”
B9Creations’ partnership with nanoengineering company Mechnano leverages the high-throughput, ultra-precision B9 Core Series 3D printers and Mechnano’s discrete, functionalized carbon nanotubes called MechT to deliver high-value materials engineered for specific performance requirements.
ESD – Rigid, with B9Creations’ Core Series 3D printer platform, offers the ultimate solution for electronics manufacturing in verticals ranging from medical device to industrial to aerospace & defense. ESD – Rigid is ideal for 3D printing electrical connectors and enclosures, SMT pick and place nozzles, custom trays for component handling and storage, jigs and fixtures for electronics manufacturing, and beyond.
Mechnano’s proprietary MechT technology allows detangled and separated carbon nanotubes to be dispersed throughout an additive manufacturing material without re-clumping. In addition to ESD, the resulting discrete tubes can be tailored to specific performance requirements and deliver previously unattainable performance, such as a 50% increase in tensile strength, 200% increase in toughness, or 850% increase in tear resistance.
“That’s the power of MechT,” said Mechnano President Bryce Keeler. “We’re able to add desired properties—in this case, ESD—without compromising mechanical performance. ESD – Rigid provides a valuable AM solution to highly technical industries. We’re excited MechT is now commercially available for use on the B9 Core Series 3D printers, and we look forward to working with B9Creations to answer the calls of other industries as well.”
