9T Labs, a Swiss manufacturer of industrial 3D printers for composite materials, has announced the closure of its $ 17 million A-series funding round. The key investors include the American manufacturer of FDM and PolyJet 3D printers – Stratasys, and one of the largest chemical concerns in the world – Solvay. Verve Ventures, ACE & Company, Zürcher Kantonalbank and Wingman Ventures have also joined the group of investors.

9T Labs 3D printers enable the production of parts from composites in production quantities from 100 to over 100,000 pieces per year. By combining software and 3D printing, it allows you to control the orientation of the extrusion of fibers, which increases the strength of the manufactured details. The company’s 3D printers are used by Fortune 500 aerospace companies, medical companies, and companies in the leisure, goods and luxury sectors.

The Swiss company presented its 3D printing technology from composite materials for the first time in 2020. A year later, Solvay was announced as one of the technology partners in the materials area. In addition to carbon fibers, 9T Labs 3D printers use high-performance and high-temperature plastics such as PEEK or PA12 in their work.

As a result of the investment round, former ExOne CEO John Hartner will join the board of directors of 9T Labs and will act as its chairman. Hartner also sits on the board of Azul3D, a Sintavia consulting event, and has extensive experience in the field of 3D printing, as well as in the automation and semiconductor industries.
