Axtra3D operates with two business models. Axtra Solutions provides fully optimized, turnkey 3D printing solutions. Customers receive complete print profiles fine-tuned for maximum performance and reliability, supported by Axtra3D’s Applications team and quality material partners. Axtra OpenAccess further builds on Axtra Solutions and allows customers the flexibility to experiment with new materials and applications. It supports innovation and adaptability, enabling added flexibility.

Axtra3D’s CSO, Rajeev Kulkarni, commented, “Expanding partnership with partners like Loctite enables us to build a material ecosystem that provides the best options of materials for our customers. It provides the best option in each material category. Specifically, the hardware innovations coupled with the best materials make the Lumia X1 a very differentiated and flexible option for our customers. It supports our Axtra Solutions and Axtra OpenAccess business models – one providing fully tuned solutions and the other supporting our customers’ need to experiment with new materials and applications.”

The Loctite 3D IND3380 offers high-temperature resistance and electrostatic dissipative (ESD) properties, along with high stiffness. The combination of this material with the innovative Hybrid PhotoSynthesis (HPS) and TruLayer capabilities of the Lumia X1 produces parts with crisp edges, high accuracy, and very flat surfaces.

Axtra3D’s beta customers have indicated that the ESD properties of Loctite 3D IND3380, combined with a smooth surface finish and impressive chemical resistance, make it an ideal material for electrical connectors, jigs, and fixtures for electronic manufacturing, under-the-hood automotive parts, and durable goods. The accuracy of each part is independent of its location on the build platform making it a viable Injection Molding alternative. With a tensile modulus of 3000 MPa, a shore hardness of 86 D, and an HDT of 190°C at 0.455 MPa, Loctite 3D IND3380 is an ideal end-use, functional ESD material.
