Celwise AB of Norrköping aims to change the paper and plastics industry by creating an all-new water-resistant material and products that are recyclable,
renewable and environmentally friendly with unique EXOne 3D printed tools.
The company is using ExOne Company ( Nasdaq: XONE) 3D printed tools for its patented process of turning wood and other cellulose fibres into a broad range of environmentally friendly packages and products.
The patented method for creating this new mould fibre product can only be made with 3D printing,
Such as ExOne’s binder jetting technology.
Patented and improved upon over the past 10 years,
Celwise’s technology focuses on sustainability and eco-friendly methods,
And the technology is being adopted by several global companies, across multiple industries including
consumer products, cosmetics, food and beverages.
It’s no news that more researches are being made into more environmentally friendly products for safer earth.
“More than ever our planet needs this,” Says John Hartner, ExOne’s CEO.
” We are delighted to partner with Celwise on delivering this crucial innovation”.
The Celwsie process
Celwise employs a patented method that utilizes distinctive tooling and machinery, along with an innovative process, to finalize its products. Unlike traditional paper product manufacturing, which gradually eliminates water for molded items requiring water-resistant coatings, Celwise employs its patented technology to expedite water removal. This method facilitates faster rebonding of cellulose fibers, resulting in a wood-like paper product that boasts strength and water resistance.
Additionally, Celwise employs 3D printing to create a range of forming, transferring, and pressing tools. This approach enhances design flexibility for their customers’ products. ExOne’s binder jet 3D printing, a process that transforms powdered materials into densely functional parts at high speeds, is chosen for its precision, speed, cost-effectiveness, and minimal waste, as well as its material flexibility.
The decision to opt for ExOne is rooted in the fact that most metal 3D printing technologies can produce the specific tools required by Celwise. According to Pierce, utilizing ExOne’s binder jetting technology not only results in a twenty percent time savings but also contributes to a significant reduction in costs by 30-40%.
