Henkel opens 3D printing hub

Henkel has opened its Innovation and Interaction Centre (IIC) for 3D printing at its Tallaght site near Dublin in Ireland. The IIC, which is the first in a new generation of global industrial customer centres, will become Henkel’s European regional hub for technology presentations, demonstrations, training, testing as well as customer service for 3D Printing solutions.

During the official inauguration Henkel welcomed the Irish Minister of State for Housing and Urban Renewal, Damien English, representatives from governmental organizations in Ireland as well as customers and senior management of its ecosystem partners Carbon and HP.

With its longstanding expertise in transforming industrial manufacturing processes, Henkel aims to drive adoption in the rapidly growing market for additive manufacturing beyond prototyping to final parts production. Based on strategic partnerships with technology leaders, the Adhesive Technologies business unit offers end-to-end solutions for 3D Printing to its customers, including novel materials, specialized equipment and a broad portfolio of customized post-processing solutions.

The IIC in Dublin, which is in proximity to the existing R&D and production facility for 3D Printing Loctite resins, comprises laboratories, customer service offices, meeting rooms and 3D Printing facilities. It is equipped with Carbon and HP printers in addition to specialised Henkel equipment, technology and devices. The IIC is designed to excite and engage customers across various industries such as medical devices, automotive, consumer goods and manufacturing to discover and use Henkel´s high-impact solutions for transforming final parts production.

“The close connection to our scientists and engineers as well as to production will enable us to accelerate the development of new solutions for our customers and will foster the identification and realisation of tailor-made 3D Printing applications across industries,” said Philipp Loosen, head of 3D printing at Henkel Adhesive Technologies.

Later this year Henkel will open two further regional centres for 3D Printing, in Rocky Hill for North America and in Shanghai for Asia.
