The North American distribution agreement includes powdered polymers for SLS printing, several additive manufacturing materials compatible with a wide variety of 3D printers, access to standard polymer materials from EOS and custom solutions developed by the ALM engineering team.

“Our partnership with ALM was a natural fit. Offering SLS technology materials and solutions is important to broaden options for our clients and ALM’s consultative approach complements the way we do business,” said Haleyanne Freedman, market manager, 3D Printing at M. Holland. “ALM delivers strong customized material offerings focused on application and technical requirements, which equips us with an expanded suite of solutions and technical information to solve tough application problems for injection molders.”

Powder bed-based SLS is a rapidly expanding technology for businesses to implement for production applications. The process is fast, efficient and accurate, offering highly repeatable results that can produce large batches of parts and fine features. When first introduced, SLS polymer printing was primarily based on nylon material, but today many more applications require this technology. In addition to nylon, production involving SLS can use materials including polyamide (PA), polyetherketoneketone (PEKK), polypropylene (PP), thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and more.

“At ALM, our passion is creating the best powder-based materials for additive manufacturing to meet the unique specifications of our clients and allowing them to get creative with their applications,” said Darin Chartier, VP Life Cycle Solutions, at EOS North America. “Through our agreement with M. Holland’s 3D Printing group, we are collectively broadening what is possible through selective laser sintering 3D printing technology — reaching new markets and helping drive new applications.”

This partnership strengthens M. Holland’s ever-growing 3D Printing portfolio, which also features offerings from suppliers including Braskem, BASF, Henkel and more. For a complete list of offerings from M. Holland’s 3D Printing group, visit mholland.com.

ALM is a wholly-owned subsidiary of EOS Group, a worldwide technology supplier in industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers.
