Henkel and NewPro3D collaborate for unique 3D Printing Solution in the medical sector
Combination of innovative technology and advanced materials facilitates the development of new medical models and devices
NewPro3D recently joined Henkel’s Open Materials Platform with the goal of providing additive manufacturing solutions at production scale. Working collaboratively, the companies are combining their areas of focus to create next-level solutions for the medical industry. With Henkel’s expertise in materials and NewPro3D’s innovation in 3D printing equipment and software, the companies are enabling new applications in anatomical modeling, prosthetics and more.
We first saw the Vancouver-based 3D printing startup a few years ago at CES (when CES was a thing for 3D printing, anyway). At the time they exhibited an unusual resin 3D printer that could print extraordinarily quickly.
Their secret to speed was the development of a new membrane that prevented newly printed layers from sticking to the bottom of the resin tank. Most resin 3D printers use a “laser through the tank bottom” approach, but typically the newly solidified material sticks not only to the previous layer, but also to the tank itself.
A study published this week reflects that more patients than ever who need aortic-valve heart repair are doing so via a catheter instead of open surgery.
To see one of these catheter procedures is to marvel at the cardiologist’s ability to take cues from a real-time scan to position a replacement valve or other device in the exact right spot. What guides them is akin to a fuzzy black-and-white TV image.
We first encountered the Vancouver-based 3D printer startup company at CES in early 2016, where they were showing off an incredibly fast resin-based 3D printer. At the time, Carbon was also starting up with a similarly fast 3D printer, but since then they’ve secured far more funding than NewPro3D and have grown significantly.
Vancouver-based NewPro3D has developed a new process for resin 3D printing that seems quite fast. The company has spent three years developing a new process they call “ILI”, or Intelligent Liquid Interface.

Intelligent Liquid Interface (ILI) was first introduced over two years ago at CES 2016. It supplemented a Digital Light Processing (DLP) process which was being marketed as the fastest 3D printing technology in the world.

NewPro3D made quite a stir at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show when they showed off their new 3D printing technology that printed objects faster than any other printer around. At the show the Vancouver-based 3D printing company happily showed off objects being 3D printing at a blistering pace of 55 mm (2.15 inches) in only 4.3 minutes.

NewPro3D has announced it has successfully achieved new 3D printing speeds for its Intelligent Light Interface technology, reaffirming its position as the fastest 3D printing technology on the market to date.
