DSM Launches 3D Printing Trial Program with JuggerBot 3D for Industrial Applications

Royal DSM and JuggerBot 3D have announced a trial program for companies to evaluate engineering-grade materials in an industrial-grade filament printer without the upfront investment in hardware.

Jill Cohen, Global Marketing & Sales Director Additive Manufacturing at DSM said, “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,”

The two issues reported most frequently are the cost of equipment, and/or limited investment budget, and thelack of in-house expertise on various 3D printing technologies.” he added

To help overcome these challenges, DSM and JuggerBot 3D are initiating a trial program to offer selected companies the use of an industrial-grade JuggerBot 3D printer for testing DSM engineered materials.

JuggerBot 3D’s Additive Manufacturing Printers

Daniel Fernback, CEO of JuggerBot 3D said, “For additive manufacturing to make it into mainstream production, it requires industrial-grade printers that can process engineered materials in a reliable and consistent way,”

“JuggerBot 3D has focused the design of their systems to be uniquely capable of processing a wide variety of high performance, engineered materials - like DSM’s line of thermoplastics for additive manufacturing.

  • JuggerBot 3D’s printers are material-agnostic and standalone systems, with a built-in unit to keep filaments dry before processing them in the machine.
  • Its patented Interdependent Drive System, using both push and pull filament extrusion forces, makes it the most flexible system on the market.
  • Easy and streamlined production is made possible thanks to controls and software, including material profiles, that have been built into the system.

JuggerBot 3D builds the printers at their facility in Youngstown, Ohio, US.

Hardware- and Material-support Throughout the Entire Trial Period

Initial trial customers include 3D printing service bureaus and design companies active in transportation, consumer appliances and medical prosthetic devices & sockets. They will receive hardware- and material- support throughout the entire trial period and only pay a deposit and the materials consumed.

Companies can apply for participation or by contacting JuggerBot 3D or DSM Additive Manufacturing. The program is currently only available in the USA.
