EssentiumX team of engineers and scientists launched

Texas-based 3D printer and materials manufacturer Essentium has launched an interdisciplinary team of 3D printing engineers and scientists called EssentiumX, which aims to combine knowledge of machines, materials, and manufacturing industries to accelerate applications of additive manufacturing for its customers. The team will be headed by Elisa Teipel, who recently joined the company as it expanded its leadership team.

EssentiumX will test and develop new materials and processes for using the firm’s High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D printing platform for the US Air Force, in order to advance its expeditionary part production at scale, moving point-of-production to point-of-service.

“Additive manufacturing has the potential to transform what and how things are manufactured,” said Teipel. “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 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 a problem EssentiumX will solve.”
