Ultrafast polymer production 3D printer manufacturer, Nexa3D, has partnered with Royal DSM to speed up the adoption of sustainable additive manufacturing and production.
The partnership will fast track the availability of Nexa3D’s Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS) 350 systems with DSM’s sustainable laser sintering powders for series production. In addition, DSM’s first polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) laser sintering material, Arnite T AM1210, will be included with every QLS 350 system sold commercially from the first quarter of 2021.
According to DSM, Arnite T AM1210 is the first-ever PBT powder commercially available for series production of industrial and automotive electronics.
“We are very excited to partner with Nexa3D, the company that is breaking traditional additive manufacturing speed and productivity barriers, to deliver our first-ever PBT laser sintering material through their ultrafast QLS 350 system,” said Hugo da Silva, VP of Additive Manufacturing at DSM.
