AFPM : Latest 3D Printing Technology “Made in India” by Divide by Zero Technologies

AFPM stands for Advanced Fusion Plastic Modeling. It is in-house developed and patented 3D Printing Technology by Divide by Zero Technologies, Navi Mumbai, India. AFPM is far superior and reliable 3D Printing Technology compared to the conventional FFF and other such 3D printing technologies now available since decades across the globe. AFPM is currently equipped only on AION 500 series of 3D Printers manufactured by Divide by Zero Technologies.

Key features of The AFPM Technology :

  • Adaptive Flow-rate and Temperature control :

    Every layer of the sliced component has its own significance considering the highly complex designs and defines the overall finish of the complete component. AFPMTM Technology thus auto adjust the material flow rates at every odd and even layers of the built component based on its geometrical stress requirements.
  • Material Strength :

    AFPM Technology matches the industrial requirements of built materials by complying the Thermal, Elasticity and RA value requirements along with boosting the Mechanical properties of the part. In some test results, it have far excelled in performance even compared the SLS parts! Yes, the AFPM materials are not the same filament spools used in the conventional FFF process; rather they are improved versions of these materials!
  • Deposition rates :

    For Additive manufacturing of parts with large volumes i.e. volumes higher than 500x500x500mm, it’s equally important to enhance the material deposition rates. The purpose is not solved at all with the lower deposition rates in conventional FFF process which requires huge build times for large volumes. AFPM Technology achieves this by selective deposition of materials, which auto adjusts the material flow based on geometrical complexity of part. Layers with highly complex organic structures have low deposition rates and those without details and simple structures are developed with almost 3x times’ faster deposition rates.

These make AFPM Technology a perfect choice for real life applications of Industrial parts and prototype development. Whether the prototype is required for fitment test, a snap-fit, low volume batch production, Assembly testing or mere for Touch-and-Feel, AFPMTM will do it for just @ 6/- INR per cubic cm!!!

3D Printing

AFPM helps control temperature and material flow in variable layers of printing which gives us better material control resulting stronger adhesion in layers which means better printed part strength.

Material Engineering

AFPM is based on strong R&D in material sciences, which means material that gives better output in terms of surface finish and part strength. In some test results, it is at par or even better performance when compared the SLS parts.

Software Development

AFPM gives you a better software control because of which based on geometery and minute features of part, software decides best orientation and helps in selective layer temperature alteration, so that detailing can be worked on.
