Swedish graphene-solutions provider Graphmatech is partnering with SLS 3D printer manufacturer Wematter (also Swedish), a developer of an easy-to-use SLS 3D printing platform for additive manufacturing. Graphmatech enhances polymer powders with graphene, which makes them electrically- and thermally conductive improving processibility, and more. The companies will be working on graphene powders for SLS technology.

Graphmatech and Wematter partner on graphene powders for SLS, the composite powders will enable electrical conductivity of the parts “The graphene-enhanced powder will meet the needs of some of the most demanding customers in the Telecommunications, Aerospace and Automotive industries”, said Dr. Mamoun Taher – CEO & Founder of Graphmatech. “The Gravity system by Wematter is an appealing SLS system for printing our high-performing graphene-enhanced powders. The innovative powder handling system developed by Wematter makes the Gravity system very user friendly which is a key when introducing new powder products to the market.”

Together, the two startups will develop electrically conductive graphene powders for SLS, and specifically tailored for Gravity – the SLS 3D printer by Wematter. The high-performance powder will enable Telecommunications, Aerospace and Automotive manufacturers to print parts with improved or maintained mechanical properties whilst achieving electrostatic dissipative (ESD), shielding, or even lower resistivity, and performance.

Graphene enables material development for Additive Manufacturing at a new level. By utilizing Graphmatech’s novel method of incorporating graphene with polymer powders, this is the first time that a powder-based technology like SLS is used together with Polyamide 11-Graphene powder in an industrial way.

“With this new strategic partnership, Wematter and Graphmatech will be able to offer customers in the Telecommunications, Aerospace and Automotive industries a competitive advantage”, commented Robert Kniola CEO & Co-Founder at Wematter. “We see a great potential in working with Graphmatech because they have a proven capability of developing cutting-edge graphene-based materials for SLS 3D printing.”
