Announced at last week’s formnext in Frankfurt, BASF Venture Capital is leading a Series A investment round in Essentium, Inc., a provider of additive manufacturing solutions headquartered in College Station, TX, with Materialise as one of the co-investors.
BASF and Essentium have worked together on advanced fused filament fabrication (FFF) solutions using Essentium’s proprietary FlashFuse technology for high mechanical strength in the build direction for extrusion printed parts. The two companies are now extending their strategic partnership to establish a consistent global materials supply chain, supportive of Essentium’s new High Speed Extrusion (HSE) additive manufacturing platform.
