Arkema Partners With industry leaders to Design 3D Printed Solutions
The Group will attend Formnext November 7-10, 2023 and will showcase a range of advanced 3D printing materials on the market.
November 3, 2023
Arkema collaborates with industry leaders including EOS, HP and Stratasys, to continue offering more sustainable, high-performance materials for additive manufacturing. This is particularly true of its bio-sourced Rilsan Polyamide 11, for which the Group recently announced a reduction in the carbon footprint of all its grades globally.
HP is collaborating closely with Arkema, to launch HP 3D High Reusability PA12S enabled by Arkema. This new polyamide 12 powder engineered for HP Multi Jet Fusion technology is designed for the production of functional parts across various industries.
GENERA and Arkema partner to bring 3D-printed personalized eyewear to the consumer goods market. The collaboration leverages GENERA’s fully automized digital light processing (DLP) method with a RFID chip that ensures optimized printing, cleaning and post-processing parameters, and N3xtDimension UV-curable material N3D-GEN976 to deliver surface finish unlocking a spectrum of available colors and customized mechanical properties, according to Arkema.
Rapid Shape and Arkema announce a strategic partnership to push additive manufacturing forward through a range of N3xtDimension custom formulations in Rapid Shape’s DLP 3D printers. Rapid Shape’s DLP machines are built for industrial manufacturing. The Rapid Shape Inline brings end-to-end automation to vat polymerization. Arkema’s UV-curable materials will be accessible across Rapid Shape’s open platform systems for precise modelling to high-volume industrial applications.
3YOURMIND, manufacturing software provider, and Arkema continue to expand Easy3D, a digital platform for advanced material recommendations and on-demand development, by adopting N3xtDimension liquid resin solutions and services. Customers can now access the adoption of UV-curable liquid resin materials and reach qualified suppliers with this end-to-end 3D printing technology solution.
Advanced Laser Materials, an EOS company and materials developer for industrial selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printers, collaborates with Arkema to offer PEKK-100 powder based on Kepstan PEKK to all EOS P810 users. This high-temperature material exhibits ductility, electrical insulation and reusability in its category.
Erpro 3D Factory, a French service bureau, developed earlier this year an integrated supply chain in Europe to produce 3D printed custom parts made from Arkema’s Pebax Rnew elastomers by SLS technology. Parts made from these elastomers, produced partially from renewable castor beans, are typically specified for their combination of lightweight and outstanding energy return.
