Our goal is to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing and help accelerate the adoption of 3D printing through expanding the number of high-performance materials, experienced people with knowledge of applications and 3D printing processes. To truly accelerate adoption, we are creating an ecosystem by partnering with printer manufacturers, material companies, service bureaus, software providers and end users/Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), as well as embracing new business models where opportunities arise.
Covestro and CEAD Group are co-developing fused granulate fabrication materials and exploring the potential of this technology for various industries. Along with Royal HaskoningDHV, CEAD Group and Covestro designed the first lightweight 3D printed FRP pedestrian bridge prototype using a composite material, leading a revolution in bridge construction and design
CHG and Covestro are working to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing through TriCollective, a 3D printer leasing program. Through TriCollective, CHG and Covestro remove potential financial and knowledge barriers, enabling the growth of sustainable design and the digital manufacturing process.
Chromatic and Covestro are expanding thermoset materials for 3D printing of finished manufactured goods, offering adaptability, durability and resilience not possible with thermoplastics used in conventional 3D printing processes. Along with German RepRap, the three partners will ensure manufacturers across a range of industries will have access to the resources and expertise needed to print using Chromatic’s line of polyurethane materials.
The combination of Covestro’s high-performance additive manufacturing grades with e-Xstream engineering’s (part of Hexagon) accurate printing process simulation solution allows manufacturers and end users to identify potential design and manufacturing issues before printing their application. This prevents wasted materials and time, plus saves on overall cost, avoiding rounds of trial and error.
JuggerBot 3D and Covestro offer 3D printing programs for companies to evaluate engineering grade materials in industrial-grade filament and pellet printers without the upfront investment. Along with BDI Additive, the three companies completed an end-of-arm tooling case study, plus JuggerBot 3D and Covestro hosted a webinar exploring the differences between filament and pellet printing.
Royal HaskoningDHV, an independent international engineering and project management consultancy, worked with CEAD Group and Covestro to design the first lightweight 3D-printed FRP pedestrian bridge prototype. The companies are shaping the future of bridges, from design and construction to maintenance and operation, enabling higher performance, improved sustainability, greater circularity, reduced time-to-market and a longer lifecycle.
RPS, now part of Stratasys, is a UK-based 3D printer manufacturer and producer of the NEO800, a large-format stereolithography open-resin system. Together, Covestro connects their high-tech stereolithography resins with RPS’ cutting-edge hardware to optimize future material development and to create new, innovative applications. The RPS NEO800 SL hardware is available as part of Covestro’s TriCollective, offering customers the guidance, support and flexibility required to help with future additive manufacturing investment.
Combining Covestro’s materials knowledge with Ultimaker’s insights gives end users access to a broader scope of professional applications and allows the ability to print with the Ultimaker Cura using preconfigured settings. Additionally, in collaboration with Covestro and Twikit, Ultimaker printers are part of an end-to-end solution, printing customized orthotics and prosthetics.
