Evonik Corporation and Evolve Additive Solutions, Inc. announced a joint development agreement where the companies will work together to formulate Evonik’s thermoplastic materials to be used in Evolve's selective thermoplastic electrophotographic process (STEP) additive manufacturing solutions. The initial development efforts will focus on polyamide 12, PEBA, transparent polyamide and polymer of the polyamide 6 series. In the future, the combined efforts will result in a wider range of materials for STEP users with more 3D printing material choices for production that are commonly used in traditionally manufactured products. Evolve’s STEP technology will sit alongside traditional manufacturing processes, such as injection molding on the manufacturing floor, augmenting an organization’s production capabilities and allowing freedom of design and faster time to market with “toolless” production. The selective thermoplastic electrophotographic process from Evolve is still in the alpha development stage and is expected to be commercial in late-2020.
