Würth Additive Group (WAG) has partnered with Raise3D, a 3D printing hardware and consumables manufacturer, and Henkel, renowned for adhesives and Loctite additive resin materials to “start of a customer-focused mission to bring 3D printing to everyday applications.”

Würth Additive, Raise3D, and Henkel Loctite’s 3D teams have synchronized equipment, inventory platform, and materials, including Loctite’s tested resins, tailoring product applications for one of the first DIS beta-users, IMS Verbindungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG, experts in fasteners crafted from plastic, metal, and spring steel, with a clientele that spans the global automotive industry, various other industries, wholesale trading, export-import operations, the aviation sector, and subcontractors.

The collaboration marks a shift from conventional 3D printing partnerships, redefining standard additive manufacturing relationships among OEMs, VARs, product innovators, industrial application engineers, and 3D printing end-users. Instead of limiting printing options based on conflicting priorities, these three organizations work together to integrate additive manufacturing for unique customer applications.

Raise3D products will be sold through Würth channels and be directly integrated with Digital Inventory Services, utilizing Loctite’s tested resins for automated workflows and easier quality control. This collaboration focuses on enhancing the end user’s customer experience with productive 3D-printed parts in distributed manufacturing. Würth Additive Group, Raise3D, and Henkel are committed to continuously improving and meeting customer needs, and they plan to include more collaborators in the future.

“Raise3D is … a powerhouse of experience and expertise, prioritizing the end user’s experience,” stated WAG CEO AJ Strandquist. “Their printers, operating in an internal service bureau and producing hundreds of thousands of parts, demonstrate their understanding of bringing additive applications into production. Their experience has led to the development of some of the most advanced 3D systems on the market. Integrating our Digital Inventory Services (DIS) IoT Edge Device into their equipment and hardware systems opens up a world of possibilities, giving our customers complete control over their production.”

Würth Industry North America (WINA) formed Indianapolis-based Würth Additive Group in 2021 to provide expanded 3D printing products and services, including financing and rental options on equipment. Web: wurthadditive.com
