For additive manufacturing (AM) to succeed as a solution for scale production, two conditions will need to be met, says Blake Teipel, CEO and cofounder of Essentium. First, the unit cost of parts made this way will need to be low, and second, the machines will need to be repeatable and reliable. These are the conditions CNC machine tools meet. And these are the requirements the Austin, Texas-based startup had in mind in developing its new High Speed Extrusion (HSE) polymer AM machine. Resembling a machine tool more than a 3D printer, the machine made its North American debut at the recent Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Conference.

3D Natives: Essentium Survey Shows That Investments in AM are Paying Off

In early February, Essentium, Inc announced the results of the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. We previously covered the first survey published in 2019, which focused mainly on the slow adoption of additive manufacturing for mass-production. This new survey has shown significant advancements in that particular arena as well as significant benefits for users of industrial additive manufacturing while also highlighting remaining challenges to overcome, notably concerning the cost of 3D printing technologies and materials.
