Just as important as the system itself are the materials it can print. As part of Wematter’s strategy, the material portfolio is once again expanding. A special focus is on food-grade components and for that application, the biggest news is Aurora PA11 Food Grade – a blue polymer that is approved for contact with food. The blue color makes it easy to spot any broken parts that could fall into the food.
