Essentium's High Speed Extrusion Platform Enables Durable Prints
Edited by AM Staff
Essentium’s High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D printing platform is designed for industrial applications. The printer offers high print speeds and is said to be faster than competitive offerings. The system’s nozzle heats from 20°C to 600°C in less than 3 sec.
Designed to solve production workflow issues when employing additive manufacturing, the platform is said to enable greater speed, cost and strength.
Disrupted supply chains are just one more effect of the coronavirus pandemic. These 3D printing service providers are ready to help fill production gaps with parts, tooling and prototypes.
Reduce cost, reduce weight—to the extent that additive manufacturing can do these things, it represents a promising method for making aircraft parts. While important constraints currently prevent additive manufacturing from seeing more widespread use in aircraft production, these constraints might not be what you think. Here is a look at additive manufacturing within Boeing.
By providing solid prototypes of proposed part designs, one company has saved enough money in avoided rework to pay for its new 3D printer several times over.
