Forward AM strengthens 3D Printing partnership with Prismlab

Forward AM by BASF and Prismlab have deepened their 3D Printing partnership. The new agreement has been signed in Shanghai, China, where Prismlab is based. As a reminder, in 2018, 2018, BASF Venture Capital invested in Prismlab’s innovative technology, entering therefore a promising partnership.

Today, Forward AM will integrate selected Prismlab’s 3D printing photopolymer products in the company’s Ultracur3D® photopolymer portfolio.

Not only does this partnership further increase Forward AM’s positioning in China, but it is well in line with the company’ vision to offer a complete portfolio of products that include all major AM technologies.

Furthermore, this means Prismlab is now an official distributor of Forward AM’s high performance Ultracur3D® photopolymer products in Asia. This new range of materials will be distributed under a specific portfolio “Ultracur3D® for Prismlab”, in combination with the company’s own advanced 3D printers.

Through adding selected photopolymer products from Prismlab to our portfolio, we are broadening our product offering to the rapidly developing Asian market. We are currently setting up local production, logistics and technical services in Asia to reinforce our presence in the region. We are convinced this partnership strengthens our market position, especially in the orthodontic industry, and will enable us to engage deeper with downstream customers”, explains François Minec, Managing Director BASF 3D Printing Solutions GmbH.

With this deepened collaboration, we will be able to leverage synergies with BASF in the 3D printing industry. The partnership with Forward AM complements our current material offering. It enables us to further explore and enhance innovative applications, including functional prototyping requiring tailor-made material solutions with improved toughness, heat resistance and long-term stability. At the same time, we can better address the needs of our customers and partners, for example in the footwear and dental industry”, confirms Hou Feng, Founder and Chairman of Prismlab.
