BASF 3D Printing Solutions is to provide innovative additive manufacturing mate-rials to Paxis LLC for their new WAV™ technology. This is currently in develop-ment and is designed to meet the needs of additive manufacturing users, ad-vanced manufacturing as well as traditional manufacturing markets. The WAV™ (Wave Applied Voxel) process was created with the end-user firmly in mind in an effort to solve trapped volume issues of within current liquid resin-based technol-ogies.
BASF 3D Printing Solutions and strategic partner Origin, an open-platform addi-tive-manufacturing printer provider are collaborating with ECCO, a footwear man-ufacturer to develop a wholly new approach to footwear production. The Danish ECCO Group, an innovative global manufacturer of high-quality footwear, is us-ing the Origin platform with BASF’s Ultracur3D material at its R & D Center in Denmark headquarters. The initial results demonstrate outstanding detail accura-cy and mechanical stability with Origin’s unique programmable polymerization process (P3).
