We have the right 3D printer for every application
Our broad portfolio of 3D printers consists of renowned suppliers and contemporary technologies. These are rigorously and iteratively tested for suitability so that customers can always choose from the best products available on the market.
With FFF/FDM, SLS and SLA, there are a variety of possible 3D printing technologies, each with specific advantages and disadvantages. Our 3D printers from manufacturers BigRep, DWS Systems, Sinterit, WASP, Mimaki and Yizumi cover all of them.
CHROMOS 3D Solutions is your Swiss partner in 3D printing and is available to advise you on your purchase. This way, you can be sure that you are relying on the right printer with the right technology for your particular requirements.
Print even the smallest details or moving parts, all without support structures, and choose from a wide selection of useful materials.
Rapid prototyping, tooling or final production, the applications of our large format FDM 3D printers are almost unlimited and open up new opportunities and possibilities in the industries.
With SLA 3D printing you can achieve the highest resolution and accuracy. Fine details can be printed without any difficulties. A SLA 3D printer is therefore ideal for functional prototypes, specific patterns, molds and fine tools.
Venture into the future of industrial production with our versatile Large Scale 3D Printers.
3D prints don’t have to be colorless!
Add an extra dimension to your models and parts. Thanks to the latest inkjet technology, printing with 10 million colors is possible.
What are 3D printers?
3D printers are machines that can produce 3D objects with different materials completely autonomously. Many solid but also liquid materials are suitable as materials. Plastics, ceramics or metals are often used. In industry, 3D printers are used to quickly produce spare parts, prototypes or other individual parts.
What are the different 3D printing processes?
There are many different 3D printing processes. The most well-known processes are fused deposition (FDM), stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS). All three have their advantages and disadvantages and are therefore suitable for different areas of application.
The Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) process
In this process, the filament, the printing material, is melted and applied layer by layer. The process is very simple and therefore less expensive than other processes. The material is also usually less expensive. However, this process has lower resolution and accuracy in comparison. Because of these characteristics, an FDM 3D printer is ideal for creating simple prototypes and initial proof-of-concept models, as well as large-volume components.
The Stereolithography (SLA) Process
The SLA process uses a laser that cures photopolymers to gradually create an object. This process allows the use of many different materials. As a result, this process is best suited for many different requirements. With SLA 3D printing you can achieve the highest resolution and accuracy. Fine details can be printed with this without any problems. An SLA 3D printer is therefore ideal for functional prototypes, certain patterns, shapes and fine tools.
The Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) process
The SLS 3D printing process also relies on lasers. Here, however, instead of hardening a liquid mass, polymer powder is melted. This is done layer by layer. Since the layers are very fine, this process takes comparatively a bit longer. However, there are some advantages. For example, no support structures are needed and the resolution is very precise. This saves material and makes post-processing easier. As a result, the costs are also lower. Furthermore, several parts can be produced in one print, which allows cost-effective production and reduces the printing time per part. It is even possible to produce fully functional connected parts. SLS 3D printers are suitable for companies that want to create custom products or need working prototypes. With the excellent mechanical properties of the materials, it is also possible to produce ready-to-use finished parts.
