We have Ultimaker2 printers for producing prototypes of medical appliances and research equipment. CAD-design is done in the 3D-editor DesignSpark Mechanical, and slicing is done in Ultimaker Cura. Printing materials are PLA and PET.
Dartec hydraulic fatigue machine
Hydraulic testmachine with maximum loads (=applied forces) of +-5kN (~500kg) and a maximum stroke (=displacement) of 25mm. Tests can be load-controlled or stroke-controlled; repetitive waveforms can be sine, triangle and square; and single waveforms can be ramp or static. The Dartec controller and test frame are standard, but all clamps, guidance-tools and other parts required for our specific dental tests are developed in-house.
