Essentium has recently expanded its additive manufacturing platform with high-temperature (HT) materials and new models of its High-Speed Extrusion (HSE™) Printing Platform.
The HSE platform of the industrial 3D printing solutions supplier is said to resolve speed and scale obstacles. Its nozzle temperature can reach 550°C and the new HT materials can withstand temperatures of 180°C.
Furthermore, the introduction of new materials including PEEK, High-Temperature Nylon (HTN), HTN-CF25 and HTN-Z (ESD safe) designed to deliver high heat, chemical and fatigue resistance and high strength, will open up new industrial applications.
Apart from these materials, the US-based company has also signed a partnership with Materialise. This partnership will consist in the integration of Materialise 3D printing Magics Essentials software with the Essentium HSE 3D Printer. This integration will lead to an end-to-end workflow with all features needed for industrial scale 3D manufacturing to transform factory floors.
Last year, a survey carried out by the manufacturer had revealed confidence in industrial scale 3D printing. Until then, 21% already used 3D Printing for full scale production part runs and 88% believed in its economic advantage in various manufacturing industries.
While the interest in AM is continuously growing, it becomes essential for manufacturers and material producers to deliver cutting-edge technologies; in other terms, technologies that would not raise further concerns for operators. Essentium manages to achieve this goal by creating a global, open ecosystem that enables customers to control their innovation.
Essentium CEO and Co-founder, Blake Teipel, “We are on the verge of a digital industrial revolution where 3D mass production is set to transform the $12 trillion manufacturing industry. The combination of the Essentium ground-breaking 3D printing platform with innovative new materials and Materialise’s range of software solutions which form the backbone of the 3D printing industry will help tip the balance to full scale adoption. The future of industrial scale additive manufacturing is now in the hands of our customers.”
