Sisma, an Italian manufacturer of DLP 3D printing equipment, has recently opened up its Everes DLP 3D printers, enabling users to access the latest third-party materials on the market and source them directly from resin manufacturers. The opening of Sisma’s systems has enabled the compatibility of third-party resins, has led to Henkel’s Loctite 3D 3843 HT60 material becoming the first validated third-party material.
Sisma’s validation of the Loctite 3D resin, on its Everes DLP 3D printer, marks the first time the company is stepping into the industrial application DLP market.
Henkel operates worldwide with leading innovations, brands, and technologies in areas such as adhesive technologies, beauty care, and laundry and home care. Henkel Adhesive Technologies is a global leader in the adhesives market. LOCTITE is one of Henkel’s leading brands.
Henkel has also been strengthening its additive manufacturing solution offerings over the past year, by offering an open material platform to 3D printer manufacturers and continuously adding high-performance Loctite resins to its portfolio.
LOCTITE Additive Manufacturing offers its customers unique, production-capable, customized photopolymers resins, as well as engineering services to help identify the best application to address the needs of the customer. With a constantly growing portfolio of high-performance materials, specialized equipment, and post-processing solutions, LOCTITE aims to overcome the limitations of conventional 3D printing to enable additive manufacturing for the production of durable, functional parts.
Through its strategic partnership with technology leaders in the world of specialized equipment, LOCTITE is driving the adoption of 3D printing beyond prototyping – towards the production of final parts.
Loctite 3D 3843 HT60 is a high-toughness, semi-flexible resin, with high impact strength, excellent surface finish, and durability that overcomes the typical limits of traditional photopolymer materials. It is widely used for tools, fixtures, and finished products. Sisma itself has now successfully converted many production parts, from traditional manufacturing technologies to DLP 3D printing – using Henkel’s LOCTITE materials.
