The possibilities offered by 3D printing make it a revolutionary tool both in terms of design and manufacturing. The development of technical parts has never been so accessible.
The company CamGau, based in the port of Nice, has created the E-Safran, an electric propulsion system adapted to “pointus” and other Marseille-based barquettes.
Many parts printed with volumic 3D printers are used for this device, including the propeller.
Indeed, the electric motorization requires particular propellers because of the high speed of rotation.
This propeller printed in PETg loaded with short carbon fibers is made on Volumic 3D printers.
This material offers exceptional properties due to the marriage of PETg and carbon: high mechanical resistance, rigidity to abrasion, water and UV.
Due to the geometry of the part and the required properties, only 3D printing has allowed to create and validate this new shape of propeller, difficult and expensive to realize with a mold or by machining.
This innovation has allowed to reduce the costs for a small series production, long tests and endurance were carried out on the shuttle “Lou Passagin” which sails 9 hours a day during 6 months and this for 5 years now. With numerous landing maneuvers that put a lot of stress on the propeller.
Develop parts with innovative designs and complex geometries with high precision while maintaining complete confidentiality of your research.
Weight and strength are critical in the aerospace industry. You can manufacture elements that are as light as they are strong thanks to our multi-material 3D filament range: carbon fiber, bronze, copper, phosphorescent, etc.
Save time and budget by enhancing your custom tooling and part designs with 3D printing manufacturing processes that dramatically reduce development time and manufacturing costs.
Print your part directly without going through the costly production of a mold that requires small series production, you will get a better control of your raw materials and your costs with a stock always under control.
Volumic’s number one priority has been to make reliable aerospace machines that researchers can rely on. From design to manufacturing, we have opted for materials that are both reliable and scalable to ensure the best performance over time. Each printer is calibrated, tested and delivered ready to use with its complete software suite. Warranty and follow-up are among our priorities, and you will always have a competent technician to answer your questions.
Stream 3D printers allow you to print all types of prototypes and innovative tools in more than 30 different materials with a level of precision and speed among the best on the market.
Built with precision and method, Stream 3D printers are designed for everyday use without unpleasant surprises thanks to their design based on proven and reliable components.
Delivered ready to use, already calibrated, with their software suite, you will be able to launch your first 3D printing right after its unpacking thanks to their memory card which already includes test objects.
Designed and manufactured in France, we offer you all the assistance and after-sales service during and after the warranty period. To ensure the best services, your printer can be picked up within 24 hours and returned within 72 hours (simple maintenance).
3D printing is a new technology accessible to a wide audience, but our team of enthusiasts has been working in the world of 3D design for over 15 years.
The colors of the Stream series can be customized to the colors of your company in order to take into account the graphic charter of your establishment.
Don’t take any more risks in your investments, Volumic offers you upgrade kits to make your Stream printers evolve. Please contact us to find out about this new service.
Total compatibility with your 3D CAD/CAM software. Our software recovers STL, STEP, 3DS, OBJ formats from the main 3D programs like: SolidWorks, Catia, 3Dsmax, Blender, Sketchup, Cinema4D, etc…
Our 3D printers are autonomous and can operate and print without being connected to a computer, thanks to their memory card on which your 3D files are located. The USB connection also allows direct control by computer.
The main thing is that our printers are designed and manufactured in France with passion and rigor. The quality of our products is our priority.
