Azul 3D delivers a new LAKE printer to DuPont


SKOKIE, Illinois–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Azul 3D has delivered its LAKE printer to DuPont Electronics & Industrial, which will use the printer to begin manufacturing 3D printed parts.

DuPont and Azul 3D worked together for over a year to prepare the LAKE printer for on-site testing by the DuPont team. As part of this collaboration, DuPont has also invested in Azul 3D, highlighting the potential of the LAKE printer for industrial applications.

The LAKE printer harnesses the power of Azul 3D’s exclusive Large Area Rapid Printing (HARP™) technology, a type of 3D printing that converts liquid plastic into solid objects using ultraviolet light. It can print vertically at speeds of up to 18 inches per hour, giving it throughputs that make additive manufacturing practical for mass production.

Azul 3D’s proprietary resins also enable mass production, which could revolutionize additive manufacturing in industrial and consumer spaces. Azul 3D chemists have developed a custom proprietary resin for DuPont that will allow for intricate parts that are not possible with other manufacturing methods and material characteristics.

DuPont selected the DuPont Experimental Station in Wilmington, Delaware to install the LAKE printer. The DuPont Experimental Station is a center for science and business development, home to scientists and engineers enabling innovation in all industries for more than 115 years.

“The collaboration with DuPont has been incredibly productive. Shipping a LAKE printer to DuPont further validates the industrial capabilities of Azul 3D’s technology and materials,” said Cody Petersen, CEO of Azul 3D. “This is just the beginning of our efforts to completely transform mass production in the polymer manufacturing space.”

“Azul 3D’s LAKE printer is an impressive extension of our capabilities at the DuPont Experimental Station,” said Vere Archibald, Site Manager, DuPont Experimental Station. “As we collaborate more and begin to explore commercial applications, we are already seeing how this can be a powerful tool for technology development aligned with our goal of delivering essential innovations to thrive.”
