M. Holland adds BASF metal filament to its offering

March 5, 2020

M. Holland Company, Northbrook, Illinois, USA, a distributor of thermoplastic resins, has announced an expanded distribution agreement with BASF 3D Printing Solutions, Heidelberg, Germany. Adding to its portfolio of AM products and services, M. Holland is now distributing Ultrafuse® 316L, BASF’s stainless steel composite filament. This filament can be processed using standard Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) machines and debinding and sintering processes.

“We are excited to broaden our existing relationship with BASF and are fortunate to be among the select organisations authorised to distribute Ultrafuse® 316L,” stated Haleyanne Freedman, Market Manager, 3D Printing at M. Holland. “This metal polymer composite filament is a groundbreaking and industry-changing product that is also cost-effective. Our clients can leverage this distinct material to complement existing plastic injection moulding opportunities and a wide array of other applications.”

“By expanding our distribution partnership with M. Holland to now include our Ultrafuse® 316L metal filament for Additive Manufacturing, we are able to make the printing of metal parts more accessible and affordable to manufacturers,” added Firat Hizal, Head of Metal Systems, BASF 3D Printing Solutions. “As we expand our presence in North America, customers can quickly and reliably create stainless steel parts, utilising their existing printers and an established debinding and sintering network.”

This distribution arrangement follows a prior agreement with BASF, and enhances a growing portfolio of AM materials from suppliers Henkel, Owens Corning and 3DXTech. This highlights M. Holland’s commitment to strategic growth in the AM market. The company is also focused on how ancillary materials can complement its already extensive portfolio of materials and services, including consulting support, prototyping and equipment selection.
