EssentiumX Fast Forwards Industrial-Scale AM Innovation and Deployment

| The Essentium Team


Essentium, Inc., a leading innovator of industrial additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, has announced the launch of EssentiumX, an interdisciplinary team of AM engineers and scientists capable of fast-tracking large-scale manufacturers’ AM visions and making them a reality. The growing team of world-class AM experts will combine their knowledge of machines, materials, and manufacturing industries, to bring customers’ AM application and innovation visions to fruition.

The team will be headed by Elisa Teipel who brings more than a decade of experience in AM R&D. Teipel has been instrumental in exploring new 3D printing applications and directing large-scale projects with aerospace, consumer goods, and automotive manufacturers to ensure the successful commercialization of materials and technology.

The EsssentiumX team will test and develop new materials and processes using the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSETM) 3D Printing Platform for the U.S. Air Force, as part of the company’s contract to advance AM solutions for both the U.S. Air Force and the National Guard Bureau (NGB). Beyond producing parts through depots and service centers, the EssentiumX team is focused on enabling the U.S. Air Force to advance expeditionary part production at scale, which moves the point-of-production to the point-of-service.

Said Elisa Teipel, Ph.D., Chief Development Officer, Essentium, Inc.: “Additive manufacturing has the potential to transform what and how things are manufactured. It has the potential to shift the product ideation to deployment paradigm, transform the economics of manufacturing, and remove supply chain risk. The single biggest challenge large manufacturers face, however, is having the IP and skills needed to make their AM vision, often multiyear deployment projects, a reality, and to realize the far-reaching potential of AM. This is the problem EssentiumX will solve.”

EssentiumX will provide manufacturers with the critical thinking, early blueprints, and knowledge transfer needed to transform legacy processes and applications, and create hitherto unimagined products using the Essentium HSE 3D Printing Platform.
