“We work closely with OEMs to develop new materials that address key challenges for industrial customers. Shifting from prototyping to production of finished products with additive manufacturing is one of the core areas we focus on, and it requires a printer that can produce high quality parts with industrial materials. We have been very impressed with the print quality of the METHOD X. The heated chamber and the SR-30 support material are ideal for printing complex end-use parts with KIMYA ABS-based materials,” said Pierre-Antoine Pluvinage, Business Development Director, KIMYA – Additive Manufacturing by ARMOR.
“PolyMax™ PC-FR allows industrial customers to print end-use parts that comply with existing fire rating standards. With its heated chamber, METHOD bridges the gap between industrial materials and production-ready printed parts as it offers consistent results with engineering materials,” said Dr. Xiaofan Luo, President, Polymaker
“Jabil is excited about the opportunity to work with MakerBot to provide third-party materials for the METHOD Platform. The Materials Development Program should provide MakerBot customers with access to a broader range of materials and, ultimately, unlock more applications for additive manufacturing,” said Matt Torosian, Director of Product Management Additive Manufacturing, Jabil.
“Mitsubishi Chemical is constantly working on creating new engineering materials solutions for industrial 3D printing and very proud to cooperate with MakerBot, a leading high-end printer manufacturer,” said Dick C. Hoogerdijk, Director, Marketing and New Business Development, Mitsubishi Chemical.
