The acquisition of Collider and its Orchid printer technology by industrial 3D-printing company Essentium, and University of North Florida (UNF) professor Steve Stagon’s patent for a 3D-printed mold raise the bar in the quest to reduce or eliminate costly tooling while producing optimally performing parts in greater volumes.

In acquiring Collider’s technology — which prints a thin, dissolvable photopolymer shell and fills it with a traditional thermosetting polymer, all in the same build chamber — Essentium is firmly committing to programmable tooling through digital light processing (DLP).
