What Is the SHOTSHEEN® Production Finish?


What Is the SHOTSHEEN® Production Finish?
While 3D printing has been available for over 30 years, we are still finding ways to perfect processes to give a better end product faster and at a lower cost. One issue that has plagued 3D printing is being able to create something that looks like an injection molded part.
At SICAM, weve developed the SHOTSHEEN® finish to solve these problems with Multi Jet Fusion production. Our trademarked finish not only looks more like an injection molded part than typical MJF finishes, but it does so without increasing labor costs.

So, what can you do with Multi Jet Fusion? - Part 1

This is the first in a series of articles presenting examples of what you can achieve with Multi Jet Fusion. While we have been producing amazing parts for our customers, our confidentiality agreements prevent us from sharing those projects at this time. As an alternative and to demonstrate what Multi Jet Fusion can do we decided to do two things: select and produce parts that are open sourced on the internet and to create our own designs.

This article will highlight the amazing details that can be produced using Multi Jet Fusion.

Challenges

A government contractor was challenged to find a small lot method to produce a hexagon boot clamp with a temperature performance requirement that was limiting their options. Traditional manufacturing techniques like injection molding and machining were too expensive for short run production. Initial AM methods used to produce these parts fell short on meeting the desired material properties, and failed testing conditions that they were subjected to.

Stereolithography (SLA) models were challenged by temperature limitations, and warped during thermal testing and heating. Each failure would compromise a week of testing for the application.
