Paramount introduces High Temperature Laser Sintering (HTLS), a breakthrough disruptive manufacturing technology with a high temperature, electrically and thermally-conductive polymer for aerospace and medical applications.
Paramountís High Temperature Sintering (HTS) machine processing technology, advanced machine controls and carbon fiber composites, including revolutionary sinterable nanocomposite materials, were developed for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program through a critical $4MM SBIR Phase II contract awarded by the Air Force Research Laboratory. This pioneering R&D effort deemed HTS one of the most advanced uses of additive manufacturing composite materials available to date. HTS was validated through rigorous qualification protocols established by Northrop Grumman's "B" basis design allowable testing criteria for the F-35.
Paramountís HTS exemplifies innovation to the fullest extent, narrowing the gap between what can be imagined and what can be produced via additive manufacturing. 3D CAD solid models are nested and strategically oriented within a build chamber to achieve optimal part densification and repeatable dimensional accuracy. With a CO2 laser, HTS material is polymerized layer-by-layer at .004" (0.1mm) layer thickness during the sintering process. High temperature laser sintering offers a range of application benefits from cost savings to rapid deployment, including:
Paramountís HTS delivers functionalized high temperature composite materials and processing, meeting stringent demands for aerospace safety and reliability. Direct Part Manufacturing (DPM) offers significant lead time savings while improving system affordability. DPM has become a reality for low-volume manufacturing of fly-away parts on manned and unattended systems using 3D CAD digital data.
