Fortify Mixes It Up
Nexa3D Partners with Siemens
Nexa3D, a Ventura, Calif.-based maker of polymer production 3D printers co-founded by former 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental, recently made two announcements. The first pertains to its agreement with Siemens, whereby the technology company will help to bring Nexa3D’s AM production systems up to full Industry 4.0 preparedness. Under this collaboration, Nexa3D’s entire Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS) product line will adopt Siemens’ factory automation and edge computing technologies, with planned commercial delivery of its QLS-350 polymer production 3D printer powered by Siemens’ automation controls in the first quarter of 2021. Secondly, Nexa3D has unveiled its single-cure polymer, xCE-White, designed for producing end-use plastic parts and injection molding tools “in minutes” on the company’s NXE400 3D printer.
