Apium Filament Dryer Reduces Moisture-Related 3D Printing Defects and Noticeably Increases Printing Success Rate


Most filaments produced for the Material Extrusion 3D Printing Technology (FFF) are polymer-based materials. Other than polyolefins, almost every other polymer can absorb moisture from the atmosphere. Moisture in filaments can cause poor print quality and significantly affect the printing process. In order to overcome these problems, Apium partners with Purpose AM Systems from Singapore and launches new Apium Filament Dryers.

“Through our partnership with Purpose AM, we are launching Apium Filament Dryers and provide our end-users with the complete solution for processing high performance polymers. We offer the unique AM solution with our advanced customer support established by our Service Center experts and forerunner technologies. “Pinar Karakas, Head of Marketing and Quality Management.
