Material producers usually work with machine manufacturers but we tend to forget that it also plays to their strengths to work with distribution partners. Specialty chemicals company Evonik reminds us of the importance of such partnerships as it announces a non-exclusive distribution partnership with ProductionToGo.
Effective June 1st, the Germany-based distributor will handle the sales of Evonik’s photopolymers and PEEK-based filaments of the INFINAM® brand. The company will focus on the European Union – Switzerland, Norway and United Kingdom.
“Adding the fundamental knowledge and capabilities of Evonik’s INFINAM materials to our value proposition lets us provide even more highly optimized 3D printing processes for our customers. This will lead to an improvement in both the quality of the parts produced, and the profitability and the sustainability of our customers’ processes,” says Maximilian Neck, CEO at ProductionToGo.
This is a win-win partnership that will enable ProductionToGo to expand its presence as a distributor in the rapidly growing market for high-performance 3D printing materials and Evonik to better reach and serve its customers.
“We are very pleased to collaborate with ProductionToGo as a reliable partner who provides intact and flexible supply chains, and offers a strong customer service focus for our high-performance 3D printing materials. The new partnership is intended to increase the availability of our products for additive manufacturing and thus, ‘unbounding 3D printing at scale’ by opening up new infinite 3D applications,” says Vitor Lavini, Head of the Photopolymers Market Segment at Evonik.
INFINAM® materials for unbounding 3D printing
As a reminder, Evonik entered into the photopolymers 3D printing technology two years ago by introducing first INFINAM® ready-to-use resins for stereolithography (SLA), Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) or Digital Light Processing (DLP) printing. Since then, a total of seven specialized material formulations have been developed and market launched, in order to diversify the additive manufacturing material landscape.
Evonik’s entire range of 3D printing materials includes INFINAM® branded nylon powders and elastomers, PEEK filaments and specialized photopolymers used in industrial 3D applications. The company’s PA12 powders are considered the gold standard in powder bed fusion technologies. Furthermore, Evonik serves the industry’s most extensive portfolio of 3D-printable VESTAKEEP® and RESOMER® biomaterials for medical technology, which can be used to manufacture medical device parts designed for temporary and permanent body contact, a press release states.
