Henkel and BCN3D Announce Collaboration to Make Headway on New Applications for VLM™ TechnologyCindy Deekitwong
Today, Henkel and 3D printing solutions manufacturer BCN3D have announced a collaboration to develop formulations for the recently released Viscous Lithography Manufacturing (VLM)™ 3D printing technology. This official announcement is the latest step in what has been an ongoing alliance between the two teams since the year 2020.
BCN3D will take advantage of this collaboration to bring forth new materials for VLM, thus accelerating its vision of unlocking manufacturing autonomy to grant manufacturers full control over every stage of any production process using AM.
“BCN3D has unveiled a groundbreaking technology that enables printing high viscosity resins. Thermal & mechanical properties are enhanced by additives that typically increase the viscosity of the resins, which in other cases makes them more difficult to print. The BCN3D team has developed a novel technology that removes the limitations of viscosity and allows the printing of a wide range of new materials which we have witnessed firsthand over the last few years of collaboration. We look forward to seeing the tremendous impact VLM technology brings to the additive market together with new Henkel Industrial resins.”
