Essentium Adds Metal Additive Manufacturing Capabilities for Industrial-Scale Production
The technology is expected to provide energy-efficient deposition, decrease porosity and minimize warpage during a build.
December 10, 2021
Essentium, Inc. is developing a new metal additive manufacturing platform that will be integrated with the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE) technology. The system will help manufacturers change how they produce metal parts with new metal materials to unlock increased speed and economic advantages.
This effort is being led by the EssentiumX team, a special project development team at Essentium. The technology is expected to provide energy-efficient deposition, decrease porosity and minimize warpage during a build. It will produce parts comparable to castings and forgings with minimal post-processing required.
“By leveraging our materials-first heritage, we are creating a unique manufacturing method,” says Elisa Teipel, Ph.D., 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 defense.”
