Essentium to integrate metal AM platform for industrial applications

December 10, 2021

Following the announcement of its intention to become a public company, Essentium, Inc, Austin, Texas, USA, plans to develop a new metal Additive Manufacturing platform to be integrated with its Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE), Material Extrusion (MEX)-based technology. The platform is anticipated to produce parts comparable to castings and forgings with minimal post-processing required.

The technology, now being developed by special project development team EssentiumX, is intended to help manufacturers change how high-quality metal parts are produced, with new metal materials hoped to enable speed, economic, and innovation advantages. Supported by five patents to date with three additional patents pending, the technology is also hoped to provide energy-efficient deposition, decrease porosity, and minimise warpage during a build.

“By leveraging our materials-first heritage, we are creating a unique manufacturing method,” stated Elisa Teipel, PhD, Chief Development Officer of Essentium. “Our metal AM platform will deliver improved throughput for high part quality, and it will have the potential for broad-scale use in major industrial markets, including automotive, aerospace and defence. We expect our metal AM platform to empower manufacturers to innovate faster and stay ahead despite unprecedented challenges in today’s markets.”
