Additive Manufacturing (under development)

Additive manufacturing has transformed prototyping and is doing the same for mold and tooling production.
Today, an increasing range of industries, including semiconductor, aerospace, medical, automotive, oil and gas, marine, construction are using additive manufacturing for direct production of end parts.

ABOUT

Why does additive manufacturing become popular?

Additive manufacturing enables direct production of objects from digital design files without custom molds or tooling, including production of complex shapes that cannot be made using conventional molding or machining
processes.

Additive manufacturing technologies

There are several technologies of additive manufacturing such as "material extrusion", "Photo polymerization", "Binder jetting", "Material Jetting", "Powder bed fusion" and "Sheet lamination".
DAIKIN has developed "Powder bed fusion" with fluoropolymer.

DAIKIN technology

DAIKIN has developed "Powder bed fusion" technology with NEOFLON PFA. PFA has excellent heat resistance and chemical resistance. So this 3D printing parts can be used for semicon,  wire & cable, and chemical plant.

OUR SOLUTION

Fluoropolymers

Fluoropolymers

Fluoropolymers are widely used because of their unique non-adhesive and low friction properties as well as their superior heat, chemical and weather resistance and superior electrical properties.

Fluoropolymer Films

Fluoropolymer Films

Fluoropolymer films provide parts or production processes outstanding chemical resistance, transparency, weather resistance, heat resistance or more functions.

APPLICATIONS

High-temperature and excellent chemical resistant materials are enablers for a broad scope of technology areas, including energy, electronics, semicon, or chemical processing. Additive manufacturing products enable direct production of objects from digital design files without custom molds or tooling, including production of complex shapes that cannot be made using conventional molding or machining processes.
