Weerg’s passion for printing turns red!
It could be said that Weerg‘s passion for 3D printing has turned red, as the Pantone shade RAL 3000 as it is the first colour being offered by the exclusive industrial spray painting service recently launched by the Italian e-business that already offers CNC machining and online 3D printing.
The new colour finish can be applied to all Weerg’s 3D printed parts, using either HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 5210 technology or 3D Systems’ ProX SLS 6100 Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology.
Available online since the end of January in semi-matt and semi-gloss variants, the spray painting is carried out with a spray gun by qualified personnel inside a professional spray booth that is installed at the Weerg headquarters, to guarantee a maximum speed of execution and quality. The parts are air-dried in a few minutes and do not require any further processing.
Weerg is currently the only 3D printing service to offer this type of in-line finishing on an industrial scale and users of the service can receive an immediate quotation and delivery in just three working days following the placement of an order.
The painting service complements the dyeing service already offered by Weerg for 3D moulded parts using SLS technology. Dyeing guarantees an aesthetically pleasing finish as the colour penetrates directly into the part to offer a more opaque and less intense effect. Painting, on the other hand, enables the object to be covered in a thin layer of colour that also provides added surface protection and a more compact and vivid colour effect.
Commenting on the new service, Matteo Rigamonti said: “For reasons of practicality we have decided to start with red, as it is one of the colours most frequently requested by our customers,” before confirming that other colours, including white and green, will also be introduced soon.
