Essentium, a frontrunner in industrial additive manufacturing, has entered a strategic partnership with 3D-Gas, a useful 3D printing filament producer. The partnership – through “3D-Gas powered by Essentium” – goals to satisfy the rising demand for revolutionary supplies and simplify the procurement course of for patrons within the 3D printing business by giving them entry to a complete vary of filaments by a single supplier.
The partnership consolidates 3D-Gas’s manufacturing to Essentium’s AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 licensed Texas amenities for the North American market – guaranteeing environment friendly scaling and supply of US-manufactured supplies. Clients may have entry to each the 3D-Gas and Essentium portfolios – making a complete product portfolio to reinforce the client expertise. Now, clients can meet all their filament wants with one cargo and one vendor file of their accounting programs.
3D-Gas has a longstanding relationship with NatureWorks, a number one producer of low-carbon polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymers derived from renewable sources. This collaboration will additional improve the manufacturing of useful 3D printing supplies utilizing plant-based inputs, contributing to decreasing the carbon footprint of the desktop 3D printing market.
Along with the prevailing portfolio of filament traces and intensive coloration choices, 3D-Gas will introduce new merchandise to their portfolio – enabled by Essentium’s experience in fiber reinforcement, multi-layer filament extrusion, and different revolutionary materials capabilities. Plans embrace growing a brand new spool design to reinforce compatibility with numerous 3D printing programs, enhance delivery effectivity, and scale back plastic waste. The merchandise ensuing from this collaboration will likely be branded as “3D-Gas powered by Essentium”.
“3D-Gas clients anticipate top quality, dependable supplies, and a very good 3D printing expertise. That’s why our resolution to accomplice with Essentium didn’t occur calmly,” stated John Schneider, CEO and Co-Founding father of 3D-Gas. “Essentium’s dedication to product high quality is evidenced by its ISO9001 and AS9100D certifications in addition to its ITAR registration – one thing that an rising variety of our clients have been requesting and anticipating of a US-manufactured product. On account of this partnership, we additionally look ahead to extra reliably in-stock supplies to satisfy the quickly rising demand for 3D-Gas filaments.”
“Essentium’s repute of revolutionary and cutting-edge supplies applied sciences mixed with 3D-Gas’s repute of premium grade US-made printing supplies will give clients entry to one of many broadest filament portfolios on the earth,” stated Ryan Vano, VP of Filament Manufacturing at Essentium Inc. “Our partnership is just not solely about collaboration however accelerating 3D printing adoption and innovation, this coming collectively may even be certain that clients can use additive manufacturing to bolster their provide chain and manufacturing processes with the very best high quality, American-made printing supplies.”
