Nordic pioneers unite to bring sustainable manufacturing to the next level

The Industry, designer and manufacturer of trailblazing large-scale 3D printers, starts offering the patented biobased and recyclable Sulapac® materials for their customers. Together these Nordic pioneers empower businesses to make a positive impact on the environment while boosting efficiency and exceeding customer expectations.

The collaboration between the Helsinki-based material innovation company Sulapac and the Swedish 3D printing expert The Industry opens up new avenues for circular economy and climate action by bringing together cutting-edge expertise in biomaterial development and industrial engineering with shared values of innovation, sustainability, and quality.

Manufacturing with The Industry’s next-generation 3D printers is a highly efficient process, that eliminates production waste, minimizes energy consumption, and allows flexible, localized, on-demand production. Choosing sustainable Sulapac® as the printing material over conventional plastic lowers customers’ environmental footprint even further.

Made of biodegradable biopolymers and sustainable fillers such as wood from industrial side streams, Sulapac materials have a low carbon footprint. They are safe for people and the planet throughout the lifecycle, with zero persistent microplastics or toxic substances left behind. Furthermore, Sulapac materials are recyclable by design and can be made with recycled content.


Premium materials for a variety of products

In addition to requirements for environmental responsibility, the materials selected for The Industry’s material library must fulfil strictly defined technical criteria. Sulapac Flow 1.7, a beautiful wood-composite, and Sulapac Universal Heat 30, a biobased material with good heat endurance and ability to stand high pressure, have performed excellently in the comprehensive testing conducted by The Industry, both in terms of mechanical properties and processability.

“We are very proud of our partnership with Sulapac due to the exceptional quality of their materials and their seamless compatibility with our MAGNUM printer. As we always strive to give the best to our customers, we truly believe that materials like Sulapac will have a strong positive impact on sustainable global production,” says Jonas Carlsson, CEO of The Industry Sweden.

“In our experience, modern businesses are constantly searching for new materials that can convey a premium look and feel. After running multiple tests on our MAGNUM printer, we can say without a doubt that Sulapac managed to live up to the expectations and we can only foresee a positive increase in demand for their materials across various industries working with additive manufacturing technologies,” Carlsson states.

Sulapac Flow 1.7 and Universal Heat 30, both food contact compliant and industrially compostable certified, are now among the recommended feedstock materials for MAGNUM printers, The Industry’s spearhead product. Companies can also order products printed from Sulapac.

Sulapac can be used in 3D printed furniture, prototypes, machine parts and design items, for example. Sulapac Universal Heat finds additional applications, including industrial molds for die casting, cement casting, die molding, and pressure molding.

“Thanks to the cooperation with The Industry, we have started to discover the variety of possibilities for Sulapac materials in 3D printing. Their technical fit and unparalleled sustainability features combined with the many benefits of 3D printing offer endless opportunities for companies willing to lead the way towards a cleaner future”, concludes Emmi Randell, Head of Business Development at Sulapac.
