Collaboration to further fuel end-use production in additive manufacturing and announcement of new high-performance solution powered by Loctite

Nexa3D recently joined Henkel’s Open Materials Platform with the goal of expanding the capabilities of its ultrafast production stereolithography technology. Together, the companies are combining their skills and expertise to further scale improvements in industrial additive manufacturing.

As a result, the companies are jointly announcing the availability of Nexa3D 3843-xABS Black. This unique formulation is specifically tuned for use with Nexa3D’s flagship NXE400 3D printer and is based on Loctite 3843. This material offers significant elongation and outstanding flexural and tensile physical properties, while also providing high green strength and excellent heat deflection temperature.

These combined properties allow for very accurate prints on Nexa3D devices, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications including arms, levers and brackets, and other mechanical assemblies used in robotics, automation machinery and manufacturing stations, in addition to parts and systems for a variety of last mile transportation vehicles, including drones.

“Since we announced the formation of our 3D Printing business, we’ve been focused on developing partnerships with leading OEM printer manufacturers.  We are excited to announce our partnership with NEXA3D, whose patented technology is ideally suited to realize the full potential of the Loctite materials portfolio,” says Henkel’s Head of Additive Manufacturing, Simon Mawson.
