Wacker has opened its first United States-based ACEO Open Print Lab, equipped with two 3D printers for the process of silicone rubber with varying shore hardnesses and colours. The company first announced the plans last September, explaining the expansion into Ann Abor, MI would support the growth of its ACEO 3D printing footprint and further the global network for silicone rubber 3D printing.
Emulating Wacker’s ACEO Open Print Lab in Burghausen, Germany, the facility will offer hands-on tutorials and training to enable customers to experience 3D printing with silicone rubber first hand. We are pleased to announce another milestone in ACEO’s history with the launch of the Open Print Lab in Ann Arbor, commented Dr. Bernd Pachaly, Head of Project 3D Printing at Wacker Silicones.
