American Banknote Corporation (ABCorp), one of the longest-standing manufacturing service providers in the U.S., announced the expansion of their Boston-based Center of Excellence capabilities. ABCorp adds Nylon 11 (PA11) to the catalog of cutting-edge materials at the Additive Manufacturing Center (AMC) in Boston MA.

The AMC is located in ABCorp's secure 125,000 s.f., state-of-the-art facility powered by multiple HP Jet Fusion 5210 industrial systems, Jet Fusion 580 full-color, and Desktop Metal production metal printers. Today, ABCorp offers materials including HP 3D High Reusability PA 11, HP 3D High Reusability PA 12, BASF Ultrasint® TPU01, HP 3D High Reusability PP enabled by BASF, full-color HP 3D High Reusability CB PA 12, and stainless steels of 174PH and 316L. In addition, ABCorp offers finishing with AMT's PostPro3D smoothing system.

"The past 2 centuries have taught us that listening to the needs of our customers is paramount. When we considered additional materials to complement our existing library of materials, PA11 was a natural fit. Being more ductile and forgiving than other materials, PA11 is ideal for orthotics, living hinges, and numerous other applications," says Neil Glazebrook, VP of 3D Solutions at ABCorp.
