Essentium, Inc. has launched Essentium Parts On-Demand (EPOD) – an in-house production service grounded in its High-Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D printing technology. The service offers manufacturers access to Essentium’s engineering expertise and open AM ecosystem of solutions for fast and cost-effective production of AM parts, at scale.

The EPOD service offers customers the benefits of HSE printing and access to Essentium’s entire ecosystem without increasing capital expenditure. With EPOD, customers can use Essentium’s engineering-grade filaments and employ EPOD’s “polymer-to-part” services to make parts from custom filaments formulated and made in-house.

Essentium launches Essentium Parts On-Demand (EPOD) - an in-house production service utilizing the company's HSE 3D printing technology. Early customers of EPOD services are already experiencing benefits, including one oil and gas industry customer who used HSE printing capability and capacity to print PEEK parts, and an Aviation Technical Operations industry customer who utilized the polymer-to-part solution to produce 100+ housings made of a custom material with flame resistant properties.

The Essentium Parts On-Demand service operates nine HSE 3D printers and plans to expand to 15+ by the end of 2024. The faster printing speeds of HSE printers lead to significant cost advantages for customers compared to other machines. The reported results from a market survey of 40+ part production shops worldwide showed that EPOD provides cost benefits for 100% of the geometries and materials surveyed, setting it apart from 13 other industrial extrusion-based service providers.

“Ongoing economic and geopolitical turmoil is taking its toll on manufacturers, who have been forced to delay capital expenditure and seek alternative means to procure parts. EPOD services will allow manufacturers to use the HSE platform, including high-performance materials, to produce parts at the right economics without capital investment. Educating new users on AM will also be critical to help them make the leap from prototyping to industrial-scale production. It’s a win-win for manufacturers and the AM industry,” said Joe Anguiano, who has been appointed as the sales director of EPOD to drive growth and customer satisfaction. Before his current role, he held senior sales positions within the AM industry.
