"One theme I found among the technologies showcased at this year's Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Conference is the industrialization of polymer 3D printers. In the past, additive manufacturing machines for plastics have tended to be enlarged or amplified versions of machines developed for prototyping. By contrast, the 2019 AMUG
Examples: Essentium. The polymer 3D printer at AMUG most fully designed for industrial production likely was this company’s High Speed Extrusion machine, a 3D printer built on a platform derived from machines making semiconductors. Using linear motors in X and Y and ballscrews in Z to achieve precise high-speed motion, this FFF machine looks and moves not like a machine with origins in prototyping, but in fact much more like a CNC machine tool."
