Henkel recently announced it has joined Origin’s open materials platform, reportedly to further drive the adoption of 3D printing technologies beyond prototyping to final parts production. The agreement combines Henkel’s materials expertise with Origin’s printer and software know-how.
Henkel says it aims to further drive additive manufacturing towards the mass production of functional parts across various industries.
“Our engineering resins respond to some of the most severe limitations for additive manufacturing at scale,” explained Philipp Loosen, head of 3D printing, Henkel. “We have determined that Origin´s novel programmable photopolymerization technology (P3) offers a complementary technology for our high-performance materials. The partnership has a huge potential to enable a wide range of our resin portfolio for use in additive mass production, especially in the health and wellness sector.”
