Eastman Kodak and Evolve Additive Solutions, Inc. announced a technology partnership where Kodak will supply Evolve imaging systems, parts and consumables based on the KODAK NEXPRESS digital electrophotographic platform. In addition, the companies have signed Joint Development Agreements for equipment and materials with the goal of helping further develop Evolve’s Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP) technology in anticipation of the commercial release in 2020. STEP is Evolve’s proprietary 3D printing technology for additive manufacturing. Kodak has also licensed relevant intellectual property to Evolve in support of the development effort.

Evonik Corporation and Evolve Additive Solutions, Inc. have 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.

BEAMIT has acquired another SLM®500 quad-laser system, their third SLM® machine of the year, bringing their total to eight selective laser melting units. The company is one of the largest additive manufacturing suppliers in Europe with over 20 years of experience with the technology and will now use this expertise to develop high speed parameters for special aluminum alloys.
