There is the belief amongst investors that traditional automotive companies cannot keep up with new entrants into the automotive area during a period of explosive innovation: autonomous, electric vehicles, connected platforms, etc. Agility is not the strength of monolithic corporations steeped in historical ways of working and, therein, are seen as “slow to the game” versus neophytes who beta test new features on public roads.
3D Printing will soon be a game-changer in the manufacturing industry. Blake Teipel, CEO and co-founder of Essentium explains why. Until now, manufacturers have been dipping their toes and getting familiar with the technology, using it to create prototypes rather than final products. But that is changing.
Despite 3D printing’s effectiveness, it’s clear that conventional PCBs and ICs aren’t going away anytime soon, and that means neither will the tooling needed to make them. Here again, though, 3D printing is playing an increasingly important role.
Essentium has announced former Jabil executive Jeffrey Lumetta as its new Global Chief Technology Officer.

In early February, Essentium, Inc announced the results of the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. We previously covered the first survey published in 2019, which focused mainly on the slow adoption of additive manufacturing for mass-production. This new survey has shown significant advancements in that particular arena as well as significant benefits for users of industrial additive manufacturing while also highlighting remaining challenges to overcome, notably concerning the cost of 3D printing technologies and materials.
Essentium, Inc., a worldwide leader in industrial additive manufacturing (AM), today announced the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. The survey found that investments in 3D printing at an industrial-scale are paying off, with companies reporting wide-ranging benefits, including high part performance [46 percent], cost reduction [46 percent], and speed-to-part [45 percent].
With the surge in industrial use of additive manufacturing technologies, it’s useful to know what benefits exist and which barriers still remain. Fortunately, Essentium has just released a survey that answers some of these questions. The 3D printer manufacturer has been doing extensive research, having released survey results in 2019 and 2020.
One may think that 3D printing has no role in mass manufacturing, but in fact it is increasingly important. 3D printing is being used to create complex jigs and fixtures used to optimize the mass manufacturing process. The choice of material is critical, and that’s why 3D printer manufacturers such as Essentium have launched a wide variety of engineering materials.
3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), has been gaining traction in industry for some time now, particularly as it has moved beyond prototyping and into actual production applications. For instance, many manufacturers have begun using AM to rapidly 3D print spare and replacement parts for onsite equipment to speed repairs, cut costs, reduce unplanned downtime, and save valuable warehouse space by avoiding the need to stock parts in advance.
AM was already positioned for a surge. 2020 tipped it into wholehearted legitimacy. Blake Teipel, CEO of Essentium, a 3D printing company that focuses on AM, believes the industry is on the cusp of seeing AM become a widespread manufacturing technology rather than a boutique technology for customization and spare parts.
This year, aerospace giant Boeing completed the first flight of its 777X jet, powered by twin GE9X engines equipped with more than300 3D printed parts. The GE9X is the most fuel-efficient jet engine that GE has ever produced, operating at 10 per cent lower fuel consumption than competing engines. This is just one example of how far a cry we are from 3D printing’s beginnings as a tool for rapid prototyping.

Elisa Teipel, Ph.D., Chief Development Officer and Co-founder of Essentium said that more than 10,000 replacement part requests are delayed or unfilled each year despite a willingness to pay premium prices.
“High Speed Extrusion” (HSE) is Essentium’s rapid deposition process for 3D printing polymer parts at production speeds. It is fused filament fabrication (FFF), but the speed means even the design considerations appropriate to FFF may not be sufficient for this process. Tom Mulholland describes the design considerations for HSE.
Until now, manufacturers have been dipping their toes and getting familiar with AM technology, using it to create prototypes rather than final products. But that is changing. It’s only a matter of time before AM makes the leap from prototyping to manufacturing on the factory floor. And this leap will happen a lot sooner than most people think.

One of the many non-human casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic is the global supply chain, which has been seriously upended as economies shut down and fluctuating demand brought logistics and manufacturing to a screeching halt.
Essentium will host a virtual panel discussing supply chain vulnerability; why additive manufacturing is vital for manufacturers’ self-sufficiency, agility, and innovation; and the strategic considerations for deploying AM as part of a supply chain strategy to mitigate disruption and build business resilience.
One of the biggest positives of 3D printing is that no tooling is required — but it might just be perfect for making parts including jigs, fixtures, end-use parts, and even tooling. While additive manufacturing is coming into play for end-use parts and serial production, these types of parts remain largely the purview of traditional manufacturing technologies.
In recent months long-established supply chains have faltered leading to delays in shipments, idle assembly lines and furloughed workers. With broad-scale interruptions likely to become increasingly common – how can manufacturers deploy 3D printing as a strategic addition to a supply chain strategy to help mitigate disruption?
At Essentium, both 3D printers and materials receive starring roles. Essentium is an innovator in both materials and production platforms. The company is disrupting traditional manufacturing processes by bringing strength and speed together, at scale, with a no-compromise material.

Supply chain risk and mitigation will always be a key concern in manufacturing. While most organizations have some form of preparedness in place, no one could have imagined the scale of turmoil and disruption recently unleashed on the global supply chain.
Essentium CEO Blake Teipel explains he never imagined Essentium producing PPE for the State at the beginning of this year in response to COVID-19, but plans to continue producing reusable masks until they are no longer needed. The mask’s frame is made from a nylon material that is printed into shape.
Face masks offer protection against the further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, the demand for such masks is high. The 3D printer manufacturer Essentium from Texas supports the state in the supply of this protective equipment.
While the State of Texas is less impacted than many other states with significant urban populations, continuing to maintain the relatively low coronavirus infection rates will be vital as its citizens return to more normal activities, and as businesses re-open. Access to PPE (personal protective equipment), such as face masks, plays an essential role in the successful and sustainable emergence from the shelter-in-place order for the citizens of Texas and the economy – the 10th largest in the world.
As COVID-19 brought about disruption of the global supply chain, Texas was not alone in facing challenges in acquiring critical PPE. However, under Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s leadership, the State has taken back control of the supply chain with the help of Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D printing).
Despite the fact that many businesses and cities are reopening around the world, the threat of COVID-19 remains. This means that in order for things to reopen as safely as possible, the process needs to be gradual and reinforced with special measures, such as social distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE). The State of Texas is one region that is taking these precautions into account, and it is reportedly utilizing 3D printing resources to ensure that PPE production is sustained.
