The set up at DuPont’s Experimental Station in Wilmington, Delaware comes as the results of a year-long collaboration with the Skokie, Illinois-based 3D printing start-up which got here out of stealth mode again in 2020 following improvement of its high-area speedy printing (HARP) know-how at Northwestern College.
“The collaboration with DuPont has been extremely productive. The cargo of a LAKE printer to DuPont additional validates the commercial capabilities of Azul 3D’s know-how and supplies,” mentioned Cody Petersen, CEO of Azul 3D. “That is simply the beginning of our effort to totally remodel mass manufacturing within the polymer manufacturing house.”
