Material-Details: Bronze Datasheet

 

Bronze is a Material that is known to us all. Even if it is common for the third place, it does not diminish his qualities.


Advantages & disadvantages

Advantages
  • Noble
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Detailed and extremely clean in the printing
  • Very good permanent availability
  • High stability
  • skin-friendly
Disavantages
  • Not all possible shapes

Price calculation

Brass is calculated in cm. Bronze is always delivered polished.
An additional handling fee per model is necessary because a lot of manual work is involved in the production.

  • 30 € / cm³

Typical usage

Bronze is used for jewelry such as belt buckles or similar.
Also highly detailed miniature models are possible.


Technology

Bronze is produced in so-called "lost wax" method.
While your component is printed by SLA in a special Castingwax and then classic cast.

The procedure:

Your model of a program is broken down into individual layers of 0.05 mm.
Now a plate lowered into a bath of wax casting.
On this record, a UV laser now starts to "draw the contours and shapes of the parts". In all places where the laser has illuminated the Resinbad, the material hardens.
Now the build platform to a Layerstrke settles down and a slide allows for new material on its surface.
This process is repeated layer by layer until your part is finished.
resting During the Construction process and your part on the Insulators.
This will be removed after the printing operation manuel and sanded.
Your part is now placed in a mold and a casting Material is filled using. After the mass is cured the Printed part is rendered (hence the term Lost Wax).
the resulting hollow space is poured with molten Bronze. Your part is broken after curing from the mold and the sprue is removed. Thereafter, the further processing steps are performed, such as polishing and grinding.

  • the forms, such as ball in ball is not produced.
  • All forms of "floating" are not feasible (for example, the links of a chain)
  • Brass oxidized or is dull if it is not coated or sealed.
