Essentium brings a breakthrough solution to Material Extrusion 3D printing. Our electric welding process, FlashFuse, fuses adjacent filament traces together, virtually eliminating the z-strength penalties that have long plagued FDM / FFF style 3D printing. Specifically, this technology provides preliminary mechanical property improvements of +95% inter-joint Tensile Strength, transferring loads directly to the filament and vastly improving whole-component mechanical uniformity. All of this, coupled together with FlashFuse's integrable versatility to 3D printers everywhere, legitimizes functional 3D printing as an option for the additive manufacturing community.
Essentium also offers a suite of high-temperature, engineering-grade filaments that propose a variety of compelling mechanical properties, including superior tensile strength, impact resistance, elastic modulus, heat-resistance, and electrostatic discharge. Manufactured with the engineer in mind, Essentium's filament offerings make solutions such as tooling, packaging, and bracketry a reality for makers everywhere, and poise both industry and prosumers alike to tackle the most demanding in 3D printing applications.
