Nexa3D and Henkel Deliver High Performance Photopolymer Materials

Nexa3D and Henkel Deliver High Performance Photopolymer Materials

Building on momentum from previous collaborations, Henkel and Nexa3D continue to drive solutions for functional 3D printed parts with the release of three new photopolymers. Leveraging the expanding portfolio of  high-performance resins and Nexa3D’s productivity advantages using the NXE400 printer, both companies are enabling access to a wider range of durable prototypes, production tools, and end use parts. This new digital workflow unlocks greater design freedom, supply chain resiliency and rapid implementation that traditional manufacturing methods cannot compete with.

“We believe that our rapidly expanding collaboration with LOCTITE, now spanning six materials, coupled with our demonstrated 20X productivity gains achieved by our ultrafast NXE400 3Dprinter and up to 85% lower total cost of ownership, delivers higher productivity, better extended life functionality and exceptional economics.” 
Kevin McAlea, Chief Operating Officer, Nexa3D.
