Expanding the Reach of Additive Manufacturing (AM) Technology
When additive manufacturing burst onto the scene, it had great promise. But with many barriers to entry including cost, output speed and quality, size of machinery, and technical knowledge required for operation, AM techniques have not yet been able to reach their full application potential.
Essentium saw this as an opportunity. With their High Speed Extrusion 3D printing technology already taking the industry by storm, Essentium sought to develop a printer that would match the speed, strength and quality of the HSE 180 and 280i, but at a cheaper price and within a smaller form that could be operated by less technically-trained users. Essentium engaged M3 to help make their vision of expanding the reach of AM technology a reality in their new HSE 240 HT 3D printer.
