Essentium’s High Speed Extrusion technology has the backing of BASF and Materialise

BASF has announced its further investment in Texas-based 3D printing company Essentium, bringing Belgian 3D Printing experts Materialise into the mix to help further develop Essentium’s new High Speed Extrusion (HSE) additive manufacturing platform.

The materials and coating giant BASF has already worked together on Essentium’s Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) solutions using proprietary FlashFuse technology for high mechanical strength in the build direction for extrusion printed parts.

Materialise is now entering this strategic partnership to add its 3D printing software knowhow and develop new software tools for the Essentium technology that allows users to take advantage of the speed of the HSE technology.

An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Virginia Tech’s Macromolecules Innovation Institute (MII) have developed a new process to 3D print one of the most-desired materials in the electronics and aerospace industries.

Kapton was previously available only in thin 2D sheets and is known as the basis for the “gold foil” that wraps around satellites to insulate them.

A polyimide with exceptional thermal and electrical properties, Kapton has a degradation temperature of around 550°C, doesn’t dissolve in solvents, acts as an electrical insulator, and is resistant to ultraviolet irradiation.
