Essentium, Inc. announced the expansion of its additive manufacturing (AM) platform with the introduction of high-temperature (HT) materials and new models of its High Speed Extrusion (HSE) Printing Platform. The nozzle temperature of the new HSE 180•S HT reaches 550°C and uses a variety of materials to produce parts that can withstand temperatures of 180°C.
Essentium has also introduced four 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 for industrial applications.
At Formnext 2019, Essentium will introduce the Essentium HSE 180•S Series, which includes a low-temperature (LT) and high temperature (HT) machine; and will showcase how its new high-temperature materials open up capabilities for AM users such as producing high-performance machine parts, tools, jigs and fixtures for industries like aerospace, semiconductor, device manufacturing and oil and gas.
In addition to introducing the high-temperature HSE 3D printing platform, Essentium announced it will seamlessly integrate Materialise 3D printing Magics Essentials software with the Essentium HSE 3D Printer. This integration between software and printer delivers an open and complete FFF suite comprising an end-to-end workflow.
The two companies share a common vision of putting innovation in the hands of customers by creating an open market model which will fuel the adoption of 3D printing in the industrial field by offering more control, choice in materials and production capabilities – at unparalleled economics and volumes.
