TRIDITIVE, a Spanish 3D printer manufacturer, has announced a strategic collaboration with Elnik Systems, a U.S. manufacturer of metal injection molding (MIM) equipment. This partnership will provide TRIDITIVE’s SCALADD consortium with MIM debinding furnaces and tools.

Last year, the company established SCALADD, an additive manufacturing center providing high capacity turnkey services. This center houses several AMCELL 3D printers, hybrid systems for metals and polymers, designed for mass production.

SCALADD - Consortium - Adoption - Metal - Manufacturing

The SCALADD consortium, which aims to expand the adoption of metal additive manufacturing, currently includes the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), the MediaLab of the University of Oviedo, and ECRIMESA Group, a manufacturer MIM parts.

“We have a clear objective [for] working with Elnik Systems: to demonstrate that AM is ready for mass manufacturing in metals using AMCELL automated machine,” said Mariel Díaz Castro, CEO of TRIDITIVE.

During Formnext 2018, TRIDITIVE announced its intentions to accelerate the adoption of serial additive manufacturing of metal parts. As such, the company began using the Ultrafuse 316LX filament, from BASF a German chemical company.

Polymer - Steel - Particles - Material - Tandem

Made from a polymer infused with stainless steel particles, this material works in tandem with the AMCELL 3D printer, to produce a metal part with “porosities similar to that typically obtained from MIM,” added Castro.

AMCELL is a conveyor belt 3D printer, capable of producing up to 10,000 parts per month. Enabled by its control software and remote monitoring, the AMCELL is making additive manufacturing a viable solution for continuous...
