Infinite Heads to RAPID + TCT 2022Infinite™ debuts a new support material and additive manufacturing service at this year’s RAPID + TCT conference.
Posted on April 26, 2022
Detroit, MI – Infinite Materials Solutions, LLC (Infinite™) will debut a new line-up of additive manufacturing innovations and services at this year’s RAPID + TCT conference. North America's most important and largest additive manufacturing event featuring over 200 of the industry’s leading voices will be held at Huntington Place in Detroit from May 17-19, 2022. Infinite will be featured at Booth #1520.
At the booth, Infinite will introduce a new support material and premier additive manufacturing service. Visitors can interact with their innovation team directly and witness Infinite materials in action on a BCN3D W27 and Ultimaker S3 printers. They also will be able to see the dissolution process of AquaSys® soluble support materials at an Ultimaker© dissolution station.
“We’re excited to return to RAPID to be with the best minds in additive manufacturing,” says Jeff Feddersen, Senior Sales Manager, Infinite Material Solutions. “We innovate to serve the needs of the world and can’t wait to talk with the rest of the industry about the future of 3D printing.”
Attendees will have a chance to experience and demo Infinite’s latest support material, AquaSys GP (General Purpose). The team will showcase this environmentally friendly water-soluble alternative to PVA and its adhesion and dissolution characteristics, printing performance, and more. AquaSys GP will be available for purchase online through select Infinite resellers. Further details about the official launch of AquaSys GP will be unveiled at the event.
Additionally, Interfacial, the innovation engine behind Infinite’s portfolio of novel materials, will showcase EMPOWR3D, a new turnkey suite of additive manufacturing services that seeks to create, collaborate, and knowledge share within the 3D printing sector. Services offered include material development, feedstock creation, printer selection and tuning, part design, printing, and characterization. EMPOWR3D is platform-agnostic, giving customers the resources to address their needs in whichever way suits them.
EMPOWR3D is designed to simplify the complex world of additive manufacturing by providing resources and a closed loop solution from prototyping to production.
“We recognize we’ve hit critical mass in the playground of additive manufacturing and with so much innovation, it can be hard to make 3D printing work for specific company needs,” says Jeffrey J. Cernohous, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer and Member of Interfacial Consultants LLC. “The goal of EMPOWR3D is to streamline the future of 3D printing by showcasing its simplicity and efficiency for every potential user.”
Attendees are encouraged to visit the booth and schedule time to talk with representatives from Infinite and Interfacial about how EMPOWR3D can help them be pragmatic with their additive manufacturing needs.
Infinite will also be giving guests access to their new “High-Temperature Soluble Core Applications in Additive Manufacturing” whitepaper, which demonstrates how water-soluble support material AquaSys 180 optimizes soluble core solutions.
Infinite Material Solutions LLC is based in Prescott, Wisconsin, USA, and manufactures, markets, and sells wholly unique materials for additive manufacturing. The company was founded as a joint venture between Nagase America, a multinational manufacturer-distributor of raw materials and specialty chemicals, and Interfacial Consultants (IFC), a Wisconsin-based firm focused on the design, de-risking, and deployment of technology platforms relating to advanced materials and manufacturing processes for the plastics, building and construction, electronics, transportation, packaging, consumer, and specialty chemicals markets. Infinite recently launched AquaSys® 120 and AquaSys® 180, water-soluble support filament that pair with high-temperature build materials ranging from PLA to PEEK to support complex designs. And last spring, it launched Caverna™ PP, a 3D printing filament that allows users to create lightweight micro-porous, foam-like parts resembling a sponge.
