Augmented Deposition is our unique and patented hybrid of industrial material extrusion and material jetting. Augmented Deposition build parts by jetting a specially formulated release agent between layers of extruded material. Support structures are quickly, easily and cleanly removed, while maintaining a superior finish on supported surfaces. Jetting also provides for the indelible application of full-color graphics, text and digital tracing information on any part surface.
Augmented Deposition enables us to bind thermoplastic filament with functional inks. For easy support removal, this is RELEASE ONE. For detailed text and images, this is Marking Ink that is jetted anywhere and anytime it’s called for in the file to print directly onto parts.
Intelligent products increasingly require parts with variable materials, which include mechanical, electrical and chemical properties. Augmented Deposition fuses them into unified parts, enabling innovators to deliver unprecedented customer experiences.
