Henkel collaborates with Australian firm to develop 3D printed parts for the additive industry

July 06/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Henkel says that Asiga (Sydney, Australia), a leading manufacturer of 3D printing equipment, has joined Henkels open materials platform to provide the additive manufacturing industry with production-grade 3D printed parts, said Chemweek.

Working together, the two companies are leveraging their experience in chemistry and 3D printing technologies to drive the next level in additive production, Henkel says.

The two companies share a common vision of unlocking the promise of additive manufacturing at scale. The industrial sector is ripe for development, and with our combined solution, we are poised to help customers benefit from many of 3D printings biggest advantages, including design innovation, customization, speed, and scalability, among others, says Sam Bail, head of OEM partnership/3D printing at Henkel.

Henkel says it offers a portfolio of materials for the 3D printing industry. Asiga was an early innovator in desktop stereolithography, launching the world's first LED-based DLP 3D printer in 2011, Henkel says.

As MRC informed earlier, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA (Dusseldorf, Germany) announced that Henkel Adhesives Technologies has officially inaugurated its new production facility in Kurkumbh, India.

Henkel are also partnering with Borealis and plastics solutions company Borouge to develop  flexible packaging solutions for detergents containing both virgin polyethylene (PE) and high amounts of post-consumer recyclate (PCR) in efforts to increase sustainability.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 721,290 tonnes in the first four month of 2020, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments grew partially because of the increased capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim.

Henkel operates in three business units, including laundry and home care, beauty care and adhesive technologies.
