Evolve Solutions Additives shipped the company’s first SVP system, which was sold to a customer in Europe. Last week the crating was completed and the mass production machine was loaded onto the truck for delivery to the customer.

The company’s proprietary STEP (Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process) technology is a manufacturing platform ready for volume production. The sale of the machine was finalized at the end of 2020. For reasons of confidentiality, the name of the customer and the conditions of the sale were not disclosed.

Evolve is known to have received funding of $ 19 million through a funding round led by the LEGO brand group. News of the investment round, which also saw participation from Stanley Black & Decker Investments and another (undisclosed) investor, follows Evolve’s recent announcement that it had shipped its first system of additive manufacturing STEP to a customer for the development of Alpha.

Evolve Additive Solutions has also partnered with Evonik to formulate Evonik’s thermoplastic materials for use in Evolve’s STEP additive manufacturing solutions. Early development efforts are focused on polyamide 12, PEBA, transparent polyamide and polyamide 6 series polymer. In the future, the combined efforts will result in a wider range of materials for WWTP users with more choices of 3D printing materials for production that are commonly used in traditionally manufactured products.

The first undisclosed commercial customer purchased the SVP (Scalable Volume Production) system targeting plant flexibility, improved time-to-market, supply chain resilience and the ability to produce products which otherwise could not be made with traditional injection molding methods.

Customer’s application includes the use of multi-color capacities and a wide range of materials. “This global system sale marks an important milestone in our commercialization,” said Steve Chillscyzn, CEO and Founder of Evolve. “Not only did our first customer purchase the SVP platform, the sale also included software and hardware. We are very excited to work with this organization and start to see how using our technology will streamline their efficiency, increase profits, and provide them visibility into their network usage.

The SVP platform was launched in the third quarter of 2020 and the company is currently accepting new orders.
