Evolve Additive Solutions, a provider of industrial 3D printing solutions and inventor of Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP), partnered with leading German 3D 3D printing service and 3D printer reseller alphacam GmbH to offer STEP-manufactured parts as a service to customers throughout Europe.

STEP is a high-throughput additive manufacturing technology that addresses constraints in accuracy, scalability and engineering-grade materials by other technologies in the market today. alphacam will combine its deep industry expertise, vast experience in printing plastic parts, and strong customer relationships with its adoption of Evolve’s Scaled Volume Production (SVP) platform to produce and deliver fully dense, high-fidelity thermoplastic parts with near injection molding surface finish and properties.

“We have experienced increasing demand for STEP parts in Europe, especially in automotive, consumer electronics, medical device and retail markets, as well as with fluid and airflow applications,” said Jeff Hanson, Evolve’s Senior Vice President of Go-to-Market. “Given their rich history and leadership in additive manufacturing, alphacam is the ideal partner to bring STEP technology to European industrial sectors.”

This marks the 2nd partnership of this kind introduced by Evolve as part of its mission to establish STEP production centers of excellence around the world – ultimately to increase access to STEP technology as the only additive process today that can deliver on the material properties, accuracy, and scalability required to print end-use parts at production volumes and replace traditional manufacturing methods for more applications. The first partnership previously announced was with Fathom Digital Manufacturing, which currently offers STEP parts in North America and continues to experience rapid and expanding interest and growth in STEP from customers.

“At alphacam we pride ourselves on remaining at the forefront of advanced manufacturing technologies and services,” said Michael Junghanss, alphacam’s Managing Partner. “I believe STEP technology is uniquely positioned to deliver on additive manufacturing’s quest toward production quality and scale, and we are excited to now be able to deliver this value by way of STEP parts to our customers.”

alphacam unveiled its new STEP technology offering with great reception during its 2nd annual alphacAM EXPO and customer open house on September 27, 2023. STEP parts production is now available directly through alphacam.
