Ohio-based JuggerBot 3D, a 3D printing engineering and consulting firm, and Dutch multinational chemical company Royal DSM, have announced the launch of a trial program for industrial-grade 3D printing. The program’s purpose is to allow selected companies to evaluate engineering-grade materials from DSM in a JuggerBot 3D printer.

With the trial program, DSM and JuggerBot 3D hope manufacturers can build expertise in additive manufacturing, learning its benefits, and test the technology, without having to make an upfront capital investment in hardware.

Adoption - Manufacturing - AM - Production - Environments

“While adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) in production environments is increasing rapidly, many companies continue to face challenges as they work to adopt the technology,” said Jill Cohen, Global Marketing & Sales Director Additive Manufacturing at DSM.

“THE TWO ISSUES REPORTED MOST FREQUENTLY ARE THE COST OF EQUIPMENT (AND/OR LIMITED INVESTMENT BUDGET) AND THE LACK OF IN-HOUSE EXPERTISE ON VARIOUS 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGIES.”

The program’s initial trial customers consists of design companies and 3D printing service bureaus from the transportation, consumer appliance and medical device industries. Throughout the trial period, each business will receive support using the additive manufacturing hardware and materials from JuggerBot 3D and DSM. The companies are required to pay a deposit, and cover the costs of the materials used.

Printer - Program - JuggerBot - Standalone - System

The industrial 3D printer manufactured and supplied for the program by JuggerBot 3D is a standalone system, with proprietary software integrated into the machine through a touchscreen UI. It is also compatible with a wide range of materials, including DSM’s additive manufacturing thermoplastics, and includes material profiles implemented into the software. Compatibility is enabled by JuggerBot 3D’s patented Interdependent Drive System, that uses both...
