The German chemical and consumer goods company, Henkel, has announced that it will be offering material solutions for 3D printing.

The firm’s Adhesive Technologies subsidiary is aiming to strengthen its ecosystem by expanding its partnerships within the additive manufacturing industry.

Henkel Adhesive Technologies will now offer a portfolio of materials, including light cure acrylic, silicone, epoxy, and polyurethane.

The company develops tailor-made products and services, and so will develop novel materials to be customised for 3D printing processes.

“We believe that the full potential of additive manufacturing will come by identifying the right customer application and focusing the right materials, with the right printing process and leveraging the right software,” commented Head of 3D Printing at Henkel Adhesive Technologies, Philipp Loosen.

“We have therefore partnered with strong technology leaders such as Carbon and HP, which already have developed exciting technologies for 3D Printing solutions.”

“These collaborations enable us to leverage our broad materials know-how and customer access to develop new solutions for the industrial manufacturing.”

Henkel’s partnership with Carbon will enable them to dispense equipment for ploymerization-based additive manufacturing technologies.

The two firm’s have developed a meter mix and dispense device (MMD), a resin dispensing system, and an accessory for Carbon’s SpeedCell manufacturing system.
