Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD)
Rize’s patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) is an industrial-grade 3D printing process that involves the simultaneous extrusion of a proprietary compound of medical- and engineering-grade thermoplastic and the jetting of functional inks, voxel (3D pixel) by voxel through industrial print heads to change the material properties of the thermoplastic.
APD's process innovation coupled with RIZE's material innovation creates unique and differentiated values to end customers – delivering an intelligent part platform with safety and strength all in full Color.
Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) solves many limitations of 3D printing:
Stronger parts: Due to the way that the material bonds during the Augmented Deposition process, Rizium One can retain much of its best-in-class Z-strength properties.
Faster, easier, hassle free: Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) eliminates the need for post processing, making the entire process of 3D printing faster.
Cuts cost: Using Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) cuts time and costs in many areas, especially post-processing. The cost of chemicals, labor, equipment, facilities, etc. can be saved.
Office safe: The materials and process are safe, Green and completely recyclable, without any harmful emissions, materials or chemicals.
Industrial class: Parts printed using the Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) process are industrial-quality, providing a resolution of 0.25mm (250μ), high-definition text and images at 300dpi on best-in-class Z-strength, low moisture thermoplastic parts.
