Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Polymer 3D printer company Nexa3D is teaming up with Siemens to bring its AM production systems up to speed for Industry 4.0 connectivity. The companies will leverage their respective areas of expertise to standardize Nexa3D’s whole Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS) product line to Siemens’ factory automation and computing technologies. (Earlier this year Nexa3D acquired NXT Factory, the developer of QLS technology.)

Through the partnership, Nexa3D says it will commercially launch the QLS-350 polymer production 3D printer powered by Siemens’ factory automation controls by the first quarter of 2021. Broadly speaking, the partnership will emphasize the importance in the AM industry of connectivity, digital twin sensing and data acquisition to achieve lights-out, reliable industrial manufacturing at scale.
