Pollen AM will participe to the Elasto-Plast workshop on October 23rd 2018

September 20, 2018 | Workshop

On October 23rd, the Elasto-Plast project will organise a workshop.

The purpose of the Elasto-Plast project is to familiarize companies with the range of options thermoplastic elastomers (TPE’s) provide to enhance the processability and properties of conventional polymers.

Furthermore, new TPE’s with additional functionalities, such as shape memory, conductivity, impact modification, ductility under pressure … will be developed during the Elasto-Plast project.

The applicability of TPE’s in innovative processing techniques (additive manufacturing) and in high-performance textile and plastic applications will be investigated.

The integrated, innovative, cross-border approach of this project will make it possible to transfer the in the ILogo GoToS3NTERREG FWVL acquired knowledge to the companies, in order that their opportunities can be fully valorized.

Participation in the event is free. However, registration is necessary. Register by email before October 17, 2018:

LATTICE MEDICAL: developing a disruptive bioabsorbable implant powered by Pam technology.

August 28, 2018 | Application

Today 1 women on 8 has a breast cancer, 40% of them will have a mastectomy to cure cancer and only 14% of them will have reconstruction because actual technics does not fit for breast reconstruction. LATTICE MEDICAL develops a disruptive bioabsorbable implant for breast reconstruction powered by Pam technology. This implantable device answers to clinical and societal issues and allow women to get back their bodies and life.

LATTICE MEDICAL develops a new custom bioabsorbable implant for breast reconstruction and breast augmentation.

Their original approach combines the advantages of actual reconstruction technics to give a simple surgery: the implant is bioabsorbable into the body and material residues are expelled by natural means. To be less expensive than traditional implant scaffolds, it is produced using Pam 3D printing technology with appropriate material to reduce the chance of rejection.
The 3D printed implant is based on fat tissue growing engineering material to fit perfectly the hosting body. Forming a matrix conducive for tissue regeneration, the shell structure can be personalised to delimit the reconstruction volume.

This promising technology brings cost effective new approach, a more comfortable solution for the patient with a high rate of implantation success.
LATTICE MEDICAL, opens its capital to investors via the Wiseed crowdfunding platform. If you want to be an actor of the next biomedical revolution, follow this link.


Multimaterial gripper with Pam Series P

July 23, 2018 | Multi-material

Did you know that with Pam series P you can print up to 4 different materials during the same production cycle ?

Different colours, different properties, different hardness, all together in bi-tri-four materials, as you want in fact!

At Pollen AM, because we are passionate of soft-robotics, and we do origami workshops on Fridays, we had fun with these multimaterial grippers made of soft and rigid materials.

The back bone is in ABS and the soft shell is made out of TPU flexible material. As you can see in the above video, we obtained robust and compliant grippers.

And you, what will you produce tomorrow? A revolutionary tooth brush, the first foldable mug…for sure, your next successful product!

With Pam series P, the only limit is your creativity.

Production with Pam Series P

July 16, 2018 | Production

Did you know that some of Pam Series P parts are produced with Pam Series P?

Whereas standard cable guides* do not fit Pam architecture;
Whereas specific designed cable guides would require a mold fabrication which induces inevitably a return on investment to the thousandth part produced;
Cable guides for Pam Series P are produced in TPU flexible material with Pam Series P:

Material cost is only 8 cents per part. Time machine cost is optimized through serial production: production of several elements during the same production cycle.

At the end, one cable guide costs only 10 cents from the first cable guide produced! And is fitting perfectly to Pam Series P architecture.

What else?!

Pollen AM print 30% Glass Fiber Reinforced Polyamide 66

February 19, 2018 | Material

As part of an industrialization study, an example of printed parts in 30% glass fiber reinforced PA66.

Polyamide is one of the most valuable engineering plastics, particularly for applications requiring high mechanical properties, along with chemical and temperature resistance. Polyamide is often the perfect answer for designers seeking weight savings, function integration and design freedom.

This Polyamide 66 reinforced with 30% of glass fiber is used in all sectors of industry. It has improved resistance to high temperature, and can be used for components which will withstand long-term temperature stresses.

This grade is commonly used in the automotive industry for engine components, such as water tanks, degassing and liquid containers, engine covers, and various housing.
