Time: 50min (1x)
In this presentation, Essentium’s head of R&D for materials, Dr. Brandon Sweeney, will give an overview of the Essentium performance materials roadmap for high temperature, fiber filled, Electrostatic Discharge-safe (ESD), and flexible filaments. A brief overview of engineering-grade thermoplastics will be shared along with Essentium’s web-based tools for properly selecting materials for a given application. We will present several use cases for each material and how they are solving unmet needs in industry. Finally, we will show the benefits of using high performance materials in Essentium’s High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D printer, and some of the resulting material properties.
