3D print PEEK shoe mold under the limit condition
Customer: Datang Xinxin Rubber&Plastic Co.,LTD
Application: Shoe mold
3D printer: MAGIC-HT-L
Datang Xinxin Rubber & Plastics Co., Ltd., founded in 1989, is located in the lion North West of the Nanhai District, Nanhai District, Foshan City, Guangdong. The factory covers an area of 60000/ square meters, with a total of more than 500 employees. It specializes in producing all kinds of EPR/EVA/ rubber shoes materials, sports equipment and leisure goods for domestic and foreign shoe factories. The product accords with the international environmental protection R0HS standard. At present, the company produces sole 5 million / pairs per year, and the annual turnover is over 100 million RMB.
The mold needs to be used for a long time at the limit of 180℃ and 140 bar, and in a variety of 3D printed materials, only metal can be fitted, but because of the excellent performance of PEEK, it creates conditions for this application.Peek is a special engineering plastic with excellent properties such as high temperature resistance, self lubrication, easy processing and high mechanical strength.In theory, PEEK can be used for 260 long term and maintain good performance.
The tensile strength of 3D printing PEEK can reach 56-88MPA,and the tensile modulus：2.35 GPA, compression strength：55-70 MPA and bending strength：81.5 MPA.
That's the good performance of 3D printing peek material.
This is called the research and development mold, generally only needs to be used 3-5 times, finally will still use the metal to produce this mold.
Therefore, 3D printing PEEK mold only need to ensure that it can be used 3 times, that is, greatly enhance the efficiency of research and development.
Through 3D printing peek mold, all R & D shoe mold projects can be implemented quickly, so as to improve R & D efficiency and meet all high temperature and high pressure requirements. IEMAI MAGIC-HT-L 3D printer can implement layer resolution 0.1-0.3mm, X / Y position precision: 12.5 um and Z:1.25 um, so Datang Xinxin Rubber&Plastic Co.,LTD is selected for research and development of PEEK shoe R&D mold.
"Using IEMAI 3D 3D printing solutions, we greatly shortens the time required for research and development verification of mold. So 3D printing can change the future" the project manager said.
