3D Printing with Smooth TPU 95A

3D Printing with Smooth TPU 95A

Engineers and Designers have looked to Markforged to make parts that need to be incredibly rigid and strong. But what if you need to make something that bends or is flexible? Now you can! Introducing a rubbery, flexible new material, Markforged Smooth TPU 95A (Thermo Plastic Polyurethane, or TPU). TPU is used to make things like watch straps, insoles of your shoes, or even industrial parts like drive belts or gaskets. Until now making something out of TPU was very costly. Markforged changes all that by combining production-grade material properties with a print system that produces excellent surface finish and print quality.

Quickly Create Flexible, Impact-Absorbent Parts on an Easy-to-Use and Reliable Platform

Smooth TPU 95A is a rubber-like material that when used with Markforged composite printers offers product developers and manufacturers the ability to create flexible, functional parts — on demand. Traditional processes have proved slow and expensive, requiring unique-tooling, high start-up costs, and long lead times. TPU is also notoriously finicky and difficult to use with most 3D printers. Smooth TPU 95A, from Markforged, delivers the benefits of 3D printed flexible materials without the frequent adjustments and poor surface finish common to most TPUs available today.

What is it about Smooth TPU 95A

Markforged Smooth TPU 95A now offers manufacturers the ability to make customized, flexible parts with stunning geometric fidelity and surface finish. Manufacturers can now make functional parts for an even wider range of applications - varying from flexible and elastic to strong and rigid - all on an easy-to-use and reliable platform.
