B9Creations launched an ESD-safe, UV curable resin for use on its 3D printers, powered by Mechnano’s MechT.
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, is for electronics manufacturing in verticals ranging from medical device to industrial to aerospace & defense. ESD – Rigid suits 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 more.
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.
