Essentium, Inc., a leading innovator of industrial additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, today launched all-in-one 3D printing adhesives specifically tailored for Essentium’s portfolio of materials and the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSETM) 3D Printing Platform, providing manufacturers with a reliable adhesion solution for industrial-scale 3D printing.
Essentium worked with Magigoo, a leading provider of 3D printing bed adhesive solutions, to improve the bed-adhesion of different engineering-grade polymers.
The Essentium 3D Printing Bed Adhesives – Powered by Magigoo are designed to work with heated beds. The adhesives stick the print firmly in place while printing and then ‘magically’ release the print once the bed has cooled. This allows for consistent and reliable printing without needing to use rafts, tapes, harsh chemicals, or other solutions. Essentium is introducing a large sized – 120ml – adhesive to meet the growing demand for industrial 3D printed parts that are transforming today’s factory floors.
Brandon Sweeney, Ph.D., Head of R&D for Materials and Co-founder, Essentium Inc.: “Continuous innovation across the entire 3D printing ecosystem is central to the revolutionary shift to large-scale additive manufacturing and Essentium is committed to providing a powerful platform to help manufacturers drive significant performance improvements. For customers, these new adhesives enable high-quality prints every time while also being solvent-free and environmentally friendly.”
Essentium has developed four bed adhesives available immediately:
- Standard – Designed to work with a variety of 3D printing filaments
- Nylon Filaments – Designed to work exclusively with Polyamide filaments
- Flexible Filaments – Designed to work exclusively with TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) filaments
- High-Temperature Filaments – Designed to work at high printing temperatures
Essentium, Inc. provides industrial 3D printing solutions that are disrupting traditional manufacturing processes by bringing product strength and production speed together, at scale, with a no-compromise engineering material set. Essentium manufactures and delivers innovative industrial 3D printers and materials enabling the world’s top manufacturers to bridge the gap between 3D printing and machining and embrace the future of additive manufacturing.
