DSM and JuggerBot 3D have launched a trial program for industrial-grade 3D printing applications using high-performance materials. Manufacturers can validate the benefits of additive manufacturing and build technology expertise without the need for upfront capital investment.
Royal DSM and JuggerBot 3D have set up this trial program to enable companies to evaluate engineering-grade materials in an industrial-grade filament printer, without the stress of large upfront investment in hardware. JuggerBot 3D’s printers are material-agnostic and standalone systems, with a built-in unit to keep filaments dry before processing them in the machine.
Its patented Interdependent Drive System, using both push and pull filament extrusion forces, makes it highly flexible. Easy and streamlined production is made possible thanks to controls and software, including material profiles, that have been built into the system. JuggerBot 3D builds the printers at their facility in Youngstown, Ohio.
Initial trial customers include 3D printing service bureaus and design companies active in the transportation, consumer appliances and medical prosthetic devices & sockets segments. They will receive hardware and material support throughout the entire trial period and only pay for the materials consumed. During the trial period, customers can decide to purchase the machines. This program is currently only available in the USA.
