Techniplas, a leading global design and manufacturing provider of automotive products and services, announced today, that NXT Factory, a pioneer in the development of a game-changing technology called Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS™) joined its expanding open innovation program as a full member. As part of this partnership, Techniplas plans to explore how automotive products that it is currently manufacturing using injection molding can potentially be produced better and faster using NXT Factory’s technology.
Ahead of CES 2018, NXT Factory announced that it successfully completed the development phase of a groundbreaking beam delivery system that converts a single laser into several million micro-lasers without power degradation. The company is leveraging this technology into its first industrial-grade high-speed additive manufacturing systems with a clear mandate to replace traditional injection molding of plastic parts at scale.
