3D Printing with Silicones - Pioneering the world of additive manufacturing, ACEO® is a service provider for silicone prototypes and small series in automotive, healthcare, electronics and lifestyle goods. Hardware, software and material were developed by the Wacker Chemie AG brand with a history of over 70 years in silicone production. Tailor-made silicones and a unique drop-on-demand principle allow freedom of design for endless applications.
The 3D Printing Process
The ACEO® technology is based on a drop-on-demand principle. The print head deposits single silicone voxels on a building platform. These voxels merge smoothly into a homogeneous surface. After each layer, the curing process is activated by UV light. A three-dimensional object is printed layer by layer with the use of support material to create complex structures, overhangs or cavities. Once the object is 3D-printed and removed from the building platform, the support material is washed off with water. The object is subsequently post-cured to remove volatiles and achieve the final mechanical properties.
