 Press Releases

  • Roscoe, Illinois, USA – May 17, 2019 – 3D Platform™ (3DP), a global leader in manufacturing large-format, industrial-strength 3D printers, is pleased to announce a cooperative relationship with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Dynamic Tools, a manufacturer of 3D printers, Novatec, maker of pellet dryers, and TWWomer & Associates, maker of the TWW Micro™ Extruder. Companies seeking to find out more about these relationships or even looking to build productive partnerships with 3DP are invited to engage with them in person at booth #2047 at the RAPID+TCT show in Detroit, MI, May 21 – 23, 2019.

    Research and Development CRADA:

    A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) has been reached between 3D Platform and the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) involving large format, large diameter, fused filament fabrication (FFF) additive manufacturing. The project will incorporate the HFE900 extruder from 3DP, and its utilization of 6 mm filaments. The purpose of this joint enterprise has been to develop and test new materials that will be beneficial to industries, and also expand industry-wide engagement by implementing print process guidelines and settings, or “recipes”. Research has focused on three areas of development:

    • Industrial materials

    • Medium sized molds and objects

    • Specialty-filled filaments with long fibers

    3DP Welcomes Dynamic Tools

    3DP is particularly excited about the future cooperation between 3DP and Dynamic Tools. The marketplace has been asking for industrial grade machines which are capable of printing engineering-grade materials, and also larger than traditional desktop machines but smaller than the 1 m x 1 m machines produced by 3DP. The response is an agreement between 3D Platform and Dynamic Tools, where 3DP is the exclusive ‘Master Distributor’ of Dynamic Tools’ machines in North America. This is advantageous for Dynamic Tools as it gives them all twenty-six of 3DP’s North American resellers! Additionally, as this joint effort grows and moves forward, there will be an emphasis in the cooperative development of new products.

    Dynamic Tools offers three platforms that reflect three different build areas with high-temperature capabilities within the benchtop-size category. Comparative data is listed below:

    HT45 | Print Volume: 450 x 300 x 300 mm | Shipping Summer/2019

    DT60 | Print Volume: 600 x 450 x 450 mm | Now Shipping

    DT Lite | Print Volume: 600 x 450 x 450 mm | Now Shipping

    3DP Welcomes Novatec

    3D Platform is pleased to announce a new partnership with Novatec, Inc., the largest U.S. based manufacturer of resin dryers, and the industry leader of plastic auxiliary equipment. Together they will offer a complete process solution; from drying standard filament spools, to 3D printing from raw material pellets. The goal is to effectively optimize the drying & conveying process for high-quality pellet-to-print solutions, and processing standards for filament spools. This solution will offer a seamless integration of process monitoring and data capture for all critical part productions. This will in turn make 3D Platform’s WorkCell & WorkCenter 500 the best choices for industrial FFF machines that are capable of delivering detail verification reports for a range of vertical markets.

    3DP Welcomes TWWomer & Associates

    3DP is pleased to announce a collaboration with Tim Womer of TWWomer & Associates. Mr. Womer is a widely recognized authority on plasticizing screws for extrusion, injection molding, and blow molding, and has developed thousands of related components over a 45-year career. 3DP is incorporating Mr. Womer’s extensive expertise and innovation to bring a best-in-class, true extrusion system to large-format 3D printing. Companies seeking to find out more about this relationship and its benefits are invited to engage with Mr. Womer in person along with 3DP associates at booth #2047 at the RAPID+TCT show in Detroit, MI, May 21 – 22, 2019.

    “Our continuing mission is to go Beyond Big.” — 3DP President, Jonathan Schroeder.

    Pioneering New Platforms

    Market research by 3DP has found that industries desire more options in print build areas, user-friendly operator interfaces, industrial process monitoring, and a wider use of materials. Two introductions to the 3D Platform family that will help meet those demands include the WorkCenter 500 and the WorkCell.

    The WorkCenter 500 offers a larger print area of 1,400 mm wide by 2,800 mm long by 700 mm high.

    The WorkCell is a next-generation printer that incorporates high-end mechatronics and a sophisticated enclosure designed to enable printing of high temperature-engineered polymers within a large format.

    Forging Partnerships

    3D Platform is engaging in public and private partnerships with the goal of attaining a more holistic product offering while also leveraging Subject Matter Experts to drive valuable know-how. Three of these partnerships include the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Dynamic Tools, and Novatec.

    ORNL and 3D Platform have established a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). This collaboration is focused on three areas: industrial materials; medium-sized molds and objects; and specialty-filled filaments with long fibers.

    “This collaboration will open up new opportunities in long fiber composites that could help drive new structural applications that are typically elusive for the polymers.” — Dr. Lonnie Love, Corporate Fellow, Oak Ridge National Laboratory .

    Dynamic Tools—The marketplace has been asking for industrial grade machines which are capable of printing engineering-grade materials, with build areas larger than traditional desktop machines but smaller than the 1 m x 1 m area produced by 3DP machines. The response is an agreement between 3D Platform and Dynamic Tools, where 3DP is the exclusive ‘Master Distributor’ of Dynamic Tools’ machines in North America.

    Novatec—3D Platform is pleased to announce a new partnership with Novatec, Inc., the largest U.S. based manufacturer of resin dryers, and the industry leader of plastic auxiliary equipment. Together they will offer a complete process solution; from drying standard filament spools, to 3D printing from raw material pellets.

    Expanding Print Processes

    The open market approach by 3DP has further enabled new developments in End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) options (e.g. extruders, dispensers, etc.), along with new materials. Not as widely known is the ability of 3DP printers to accept new and different extruders, and even different types of tools. Two new end of arm tools that represent that flexibility and were designed within 3DP partnerships, will be on display as examples of future possibilities on 3DP machines:

    Dispensers—Working together with the engineers at 3DP EMEA and Delta 3D Print, a new dispenser has been developed which is capable of dispensing/extruding silicone and other thermoset materials.

    Extruders—The innovative team at Dyze Design has developed an innovative pellet-fed extruder which is perfectly sized for a 1 m x 1 m platform, and will be featured on large-format printers from 3D Platform.

    Open call for start-ups, entrepreneurs and innovators! 3D Platform is seeking companies who want to integrate their tool head onto 3DP’s large-format machines.

    Open Print Process Training

    3D Platform has introduced a comprehensive portfolio of competency tools coupled with print process best-practices. These benchmarks help to support each customer’s roadmap to developing key skill sets. 3DP demonstrates its commitment to the open market approach by providing these training materials for free, benefiting the additive manufacturing community.
