Ultimaker reports that Hänssler Group, German company dedicated to sealing technology, plastics technology and additive manufacturing, uses the Ultimaker S5 and Kimya’s ABS-ESD (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene - electrostatic discharge) to cost-effectively produce 300 accurate sealant parts annually with anti-electrostatic properties. These parts, designed to be integrated within an existing production line, provide thermal protection between two components within a machine. The optimized material printing profile combined with the Ultimaker S5, result in parts with minimal batch-to-batch dimensional variation.

Surface defects impact ESD performance, which would alter the dissipation of charges, as Ultimaker explains. Hänssler’s parts must be reproducible for ESD behavior and dimensional accuracy, in addition to meeting visual and integrity requirements. To assess the surface quality of the prints, engineers performed a high-resolution 3D scanning analysis on a select number of parts, using a GOM Atos Core 3D scanner. This showed relative deviations between the ideal CAD model and the printed part. A pass/no-pass filter for dimensional accuracy with a threshold of 0.3 mm, enabled Hänssler to create an optimized ABS-ESD printing profile to print parts on the Ultimaker S5 with minimal tolerance limits.
