Sygnis acquires a license for the production and sale of innovative 3D printing filaments, doped with a wide range of chemicals

Sygnis SA announced the conclusion of an agreement with the Adam Mickiewicz University Adam Mickiewicz in Poznań for an exclusive license to use the invention – a method of modifying the filament for 3D printers in the LFDM (Liquid for Fused Deposition Modeling) technique. The LFDM technique enables the direct introduction of many different chemical substances in the process of direct 3D printing from polymeric materials, using a typical FDM/FFF filament 3D printer.

Thanks to the LFDM technology, it is possible to introduce chemicals into the filaments that were previously impossible to use due to undergoing physical or chemical transformations during previous processing processes. These include: dyes, radioactive substances, pesticides, antibiotics, nanoparticles, trace elements, fertilizers, phosphorus, monomers for polymerization, proteins, peptides and active ingredients. The LFDM technique eliminates the need for expensive and energy-intensive equipment and can be used in any laboratory by users without access to specialized equipment.

“It is a unique and simple concept to directly combine chemistry with 3D printing. The presented method was developed in our team 3 years ago. After preparing the patent application, we published information about our solution and we encourage you to use the LFDM method and its further creative development” – said prof. Robert E. Przekop from the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznań.

The license, which is the subject of the concluded agreement, covers the production, sale and distribution of products produced as a result of the use of the invention described above. This license was granted until June 27, 2033, in the territory of Poland, in exchange for license fees, the amount of which will depend on the income from the sale of products manufactured using this invention.

Obtaining the license will enable Sygnis to increase revenues from the sale of 3D printing accessories/peripherals over the next 10 years. The company also hopes to strengthen its presence in the processing and chemical markets. Effective cooperation with the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznań in the field of commercialization of the invention is to enable further development of cooperation between Sygnis and scientific institutions.
