PostProcess Technologies Inc., the first and only provider of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial 3D printing, and Henkel, a global leading provider of advanced materials and services for additive manufacturing, have announced a collaboration with an aim to revolutionise resin 3D printing workstreams for companies through automated post-printing solutions.

Henkel, an industry leader with more than 100 years of application expertise, develops and commercializes novel solutions under its Loctite brand, enabling 3D printing applications in markets such as aerospace, automotive, engineering, and consumer goods with end-to-end engineering solutions. Dedicated to transforming unique needs into scalable manufacturing processes, Loctite will be able to better serve clients by offering more validated cleaning solutions for its 3D printing resins. This is enabled by Loctite’s 3D Printing Workflow tool, which documents print settings as well as post cleaning and curing settings required to meet the specified material properties. Additionally, this ongoing partnership will benefit future workstreams as both companies continue to develop the latest, cutting-edge materials and technologies for photopolymer 3D printing.

Sam Bail, Head of 3D Printing Sales and Partnership Programs at Henkel explained, “We are pleased to be collaborating with Post Process as they offer industrial solutions for post cleaning of photopolymer 3D resins. Part cleaning and chemical compatibility is a critical step toward achieving repeatable material performance as part of Henkel’s workflow validation.”

According to Jeff Mize, CEO, at PostProcess, “It’s exciting for us to cooperate with a renowned brand in the additive manufacturing space. Much like Henkel, PostProcess keeps its eyes on not just one aspect of the additive process, but rather the entire end-to-end workstream. We’re looking forward to enabling Henkel’s future resin material developments with corresponding automated post-printing solutions that level up productivity and scalability.”

PostProcess and Henkel also present a webinar currently recorded in March titled “How Workflow Validation Enables Resin Additive Manufacturing at Scale: Unlocking Potential with Unique Chemistries and Automated Post-Printing”. This webinar features a deep dive into Loctite’s 3D printing workflow tool as well as explores case studies for customers implementing Loctite resins and PostProcess’s automated resin removal solutions.
