rapid-logo-100Last year we checked in with Cosine Additive not long after they had unveiled their large scale AdditiveMachine1 3D printer at the RAPID show in California. As many months have gone by, a whole world of new innovations have come to pass it seems, and this year, the Cosine team will be accompanied at RAPID 2016 from May 16-19 by Essentium Materials. The Texas-headquartered company will be showing off new products which were designed around Cosine hardware, known for being developed to ensure that users on the professional level are able to enjoy high quality and high speed, along with accuracy and precision. 3DPrint.com journalists will be attending RAPID 2016 to see all of these new products as well.

Essentium’s specialty is in working with polymeric composites, and along with their futuristic materials, their priorities lie in customized research and development, technology commercialization, and a deep commitment to social responsibility. That commitment ties into their new materials and new technological advancements as they see their form of R&D as ‘a vehicle to change the world we live in.’ The Essentium team sees this as possible as their new advancements allow for so many new options.

Their industrial technology, for which they have conducted $2M in funded research, is in development for applications regarding:

  • Space
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Military vehicles
  • Wearables
  • Human interacting components
  • Battlefield devices

standgreen-mbnecf9bw0m791gbo8qvrxl9gy966rmghuij006cq2While attending RAPID with Cosine Additive, the Essentium team will be announcing their 3D printing filament lineup, as well as their ‘world first machine technology’ geared toward an industrial clientele, with the goal offering them new options in 3D printing. What’s going to be most exciting to see from Essentium at RAPID 2016 is their new thermal welding technology, an invention which they will now be marketing in thermoplastic polymer 3D printing (which they also refer to as material extrusion 3D printing). Along with this, the company states in their latest press release that they also have other patent-pending microwave technology, which, with their breakthrough Fuse Filament, will address the Z-direction strength issues currently limiting 3D printing.

“Before co-founding Essentium Materials in 2013, I was a designer working in commercial manufacturing. I sought to deploy existing 3D printing technologies to do more for me than simply communicate design intent,” said Blake Teipel, President and CTO at Essentium Materials. “Now, Essentium’s Fuse Filaments, in particular our carbon-infused offerings, provide designers everywhere with fully functional options. These next-generation materials options allow design-for-Additive Manufacturing to take a dramatic step forward in the industrial landscape.”

IMG_7438-small-mbnecg762unhkneyir5icfcq2c4jegq6tz60ha4yjuThe Essentium display should prove fascinating to see, and you will be able to visit them at Booth 233 right in the exhibitor hall, where they will be offering information on both their unique printer and new materials. This team, made up of materials scientists, engineers, and problem solvers, also sees themselves as researchers, builders—and your solution. This upcoming tradeshow is a great time to check out their new offerings and see if indeed that’s true. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Will you be at RAPID 2016?
