Goceram AB, Molndal, Sweden, a supplier of machinery and technology for Medium Pressure Powder Injection Moulding technology, has announced the establishment of a strategic partnership with DPP Technologies, Inc., Tennessee, USA. DPP is reported to have developed a new generation of fast Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) systems based on Direct Pellet Extrusion (DPE).

With a layer resolution currently down to 70 micron (0.0027 in), DPP states that its AM systems can be used with any kind of pelletised or granulated media. This new technology has the potential to lower raw material cost and significantly increase production rate and production start-up times.

“This is exactly what we have been waiting for,” stated Robert Pompe, Goceram CEO. “This can revolutionise AM and bring it to a truly production level. Unlike feedstocks for high pressure PIM, ceramic or metal feedstocks based on our proprietary MEDPIMOLD binder formulation can be used easily in this kind of printer – initial tests clearly showed this.”

By combining their respective technologies, DPP and Goceram expect to offer customers an improved competitive edge in terms of considerably lower capital investment,  low raw material costs and a wider choice of raw materials from well-established suppliers.

The partnership’s initial focus will be the US market, where it expects to see new commercial opportunities become available as a result of its new technology.
