3D Printing for Appliances

For appliance prototypes and replacement parts our Industrial PA6 and PP materials are the ideal choice of material. With heat resistance as high as 210°C*, our Industrial line of materials can even be used to print parts for just about any home appliance. Both types of material have high strength and wear resistance to make durable parts: PA6 has superior strength and PP provides superior chemical resistance. Industrial PA6 Natural and Black are both even FDA approved for food contact making them perfect for kitchen appliances. 

Appliances are the hardest working parts of any household. Washers, dryers, refrigerators, and dishwashers run several times a week—or even daily. But large appliances aren’t the only machines for the home that see heavy use. Microwave ovens, toasters, coffee makers, mixers, juicers,  electric waffle irons,  and even sewing machines all see heavy duty in a busy home. All these items may use 3D printed parts or may have been developed using prototype parts in processes designed for 3D printing for appliances.

Appliance parts don’t just endure heavy use; they’re also exposed to harsh chemicals. Kitchens get greasy and laundry rooms get hot, and both of them get steamy from time to time. The control panels of modern home ranges get splashed, poked, and whacked with pots and pans.  

High-strength 3D filaments from Fortis3D® produce parts that can stand up to heavy-duty home use and the harsh conditions often imposed on home appliances, even with normal or light use. Whether you make gears, fasteners, and other components for large appliances or hinges, wheels, switches, and buttons for smaller ones, materials matter.

Precision is essential with 3D printing for appliances, whether they’re visible on the outside or functional inside of the appliance or device. Our high-strength 3D filaments are formulated to resist warping during the printing process, ensuring you’ll get parts that meet specifications and fit perfectly into place.

Look to Fortis3D® when you need materials for 3D printing for appliances that meet specifications for heat, UV, or chemical resistance; food safety; and abrasion resistance. Your parts will last longer and work better if made from Fortis3D® high-strength 3D filaments created for industrial uses.
