Emery Oleochemicals, Düsseldorf, Germany, and 3DGence, headquartered in Przyszowice, Poland, have announced a strategic partnership for Additive Manufacturing. Both companies are active in the development and use of filaments for sinter-based Material Extrusion (MEX), or Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), and together they aim to enable customers to produce individual high-performance, affordable parts and realise mass applications with Additive Manufacturing.

“Emery Oleochemicals and the entire team are proud to continue developing innovative processes of binder-based FFF printing together with 3DGence,” stated Patrick Folkert, Manager of Additive Manufacturing at Emery Oleochemicals. “We will contribute our technical expertise and are excited about adding a superior solution to the market.”

Through an iterative design process, 3DGence has developed and launched ELEMENT MP260 and MP350 Additive Manufacturing machines specifically for sinterable filaments. These machines enable Additive Manufacturing on an industrial level with a reported high surface quality. The machines have been tested by MIM industry partners to meet rigorous process requirements for filaments in order to make Additive Manufacturing machines more reliable and easy to use.

Emery Oleochemicals has supplied its binder system to the powder injection industry over thirty years. This binder system is said to be applicable to almost all sinterable materials to create entirely new opportunities for the industry and eliminate the need for expensive material development for other Additive Manufacturing options. It is possible to process known sinterable materials at low cost while gaining a market advantage both in terms of time and efficiency of existing resources; the option to directly use materials in prototyping and low- to mid-volume production is intended to enable engineers new opportunities to significantly reduce time-to-market.

Filip Turzyński, R&D Manager, 3DGence, added, “With the 3DGence ELEMENT MP260/MP350 printers, we have developed a system specifically for metal/ceramic filament printing which is based on a strong binder system. Therefore, it was a logical step for us to enter a strategic partnership with Emery. They offer the best and most versatile binder system on the market. We want to – and will – go further together.”
