PET is a fantastic and versatile material, one of the most used types of plastic in the world. It’s presence in the 3D printing industry is increasing for its ease of use and strength, but sadly it’s not currently made from recycled plastic.Until now.B-Pet effectively recycles Pet waste into fully functional 3D printing materials.Through research and development we’ll improve the process of waste recycling to use it in 3D printing.PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) is the stuff plastic bottles are made of.It’s a stable and harmless plastic, which is used most for packaging purposes, because of its vapour barrier and strength properties. In its original state, it’s a colorless and crystal clear material.RECYCLED PET SPECIAL PROPERTIES
Easy Adhesion (No heated bed required. Sticks to capton tape or 60)
Hydrophobic: Doesn’t absorb water like nylon does
High qualify spooling and extrusion. Consistent diameter and no bubbles

The idea of building an iron and steel plant strategically near to raw material was that of the Belgian entrepreneur Charles Van der Straten Pontoz who founded the company “Miniere di Cogne” at the beginning of 20th Century. However, the development of the electricity-powered iron and steel project in Aosta Valley was undertaken by Pio Perrone. Skilled Italian and Swedish technicians supported the project. He thus created, in those difficult years of the first world war, a unique electric steel plant fed by Cogne’s magnetite and by the electricity produced in the Aymavilles, Chavonne and Champagne power stations.

The Argen Corporation was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1963, as a small family business with a focus on refining x-ray films and precious metals for jewelry. In 1983, Bertie and Jackie Woolf, along with their family, moved Argen to the United States where they opened their first office in New York City selling precious metal alloy to dental laboratories. Just two short years later, they moved Argen Headquarters to San Diego, California where they bought their first 8,000 square foot facility.

Owned by FAM and LindéngruppenDigital Metal Technology belongs to the global Höganäs Group, which is headquartered in Sweden and best known for its pioneering work in metal powders. There is an obvious and natural connection between 3D metal printing and the Group’s core business.
Being part of a much larger organisation guarantees the companies financial stability, and makes Digital Metal a reliable partner in the long term. It can also leverage its parent company’s worldwide presence and well-developed supply chain to ensure deliveries.
Digital Metal has developed its own unique proprietary precision ink-jet technology for making complex metallic components. It begins with an object described in a CAD file. This is materialised in its 3D printer, which works by laying down powdered metal in thin layers, interspersed with a special ink/glue.
Once complete, the object is sintered for strength. The result is a metal component or part with high resolution and tolerance.
An additional third step can be introduced to refine surface equality.
Materials Digital Metal’s components are currently predominantly made from stainless steel. However, other materials such as titanium, silver and copper are close to commercialisation."
CRP Technology is an Italian company born in the 1970's specializing in the production of high performance materials for the auto racing industry. In 1996 a spinoff of the company developed the Windform specifically for 3D printing processes. In 2008 CRP USA was established in California and in 2010 CRP Technology was divided into three new companies aimed at focusing on the target market: CRP Meccanica, CRP Technology and CRP Service. The newly established units of the CRP Group collaborate together with CRP Racing and CRP USA. The range of Windform materials, powders used specifically in laser sintering additive manufacturing, includes the SP, GT, XT 2.0, LX 2.0, GF 2.0, FX and PS. Windform XT 2.0, a mix of polyamide and carbon fiber is the top material in the range. Another relevant project undertaken by CRP is development of Energica, the first fully electric superbike made in Italy. New versions of the motorcycle have been on show at Italy's EICMA. The bike is scheduled to go into production starting in 2015. The company also offers 3D printing for end part manufacturing and rapid prototyping processes, and is one of the larger company offering these services in Italy.
