Boulder, Colorado, October 29, 2019 – Essentium Inc., a global pioneer in the development of innovative 3D printing technologies and solutions for additive manufacturing based in Austin, Texas, has chosen Sospes for its environmental, health and safety platform. Sospes’ mobile software streamlines and simplifies EHS management in businesses around the U.S., improving communication between workers and their companies, reducing incident and injury reporting, and eliminating excessive paper use making data reporting easier and faster.
While 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, has been around for several decades, due to cost and speed considerations the technique was limited to one-off and rapid design iterations for protype parts. Essentium’s technology is built for the factory floor by being both scalable and cost effective, often five to ten-times faster than other extrusion-based additive processes, and removes the current limitations faced by manufacturers.
“We’re growing quickly, launching new facilities both in the U.S. and abroad,” said Ryan Vano, Co-Founder and Head of Materials Production. “Essentium wanted to anticipate process requirements, including safety concerns, in a way that was flexible and scalable to match our growth. We required easy mobile reporting, anywhere-access and strong reporting and analytics. The Sospes product was an easy choice for us from the first time we saw it.”
“Essentium is such an exciting company at so many levels,” said Tom Carson, President of Sospes. “They are basically re-inventing industrial 3D printing to make it more accessible to a wider range of manufacturers. Working with fast-growing industry leaders challenges us to be our best, a challenge we accept with enthusiasm. We look forward to supporting their commitment to worker safety and continuous process improvement.”
