We work with many research partners to continually improve and innovate the additive manufacturing process, including The University of Texas at El Paso, Baylor, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Strangpresse was the first company to license Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) technology. Combined with our own patents related to the processing of thermoplastics, we’ve overcome common additive manufacturing industry issues related to consistency in throughput and melt quality over an infinite range of output volumes.
Further, this technology has also allowed us to advance past problems associated with stopping and starting the extruder during the build process.
The Benefits of Plastic Pellet Compatibility
All of our extruders are designed to process many engineering grade plastic resins in pellet form, saving our customers both time and money. The use of plastic pellets allows our customers to acquire raw material on a competitive basis rather than from a captive supplier.
