Essentium and KVG support Ukraine with 3D Printing Technology

3D printing specialist Essentium and KVG, an internationally recognized provider of support services, will provide 3D printing solutions, training and manufacturing tools to Ukraine. These 3D printing capabilities will enable rapid, on-demand production of mission-critical parts and components in conflict zones.

Within just 96 hours of approval, Essentium High-Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D printing platforms were delivered to various locations in Ukraine. The goal of this rapid action was to strengthen Ukraine’s defense response capability by accelerating the production of specialized tools and spare parts for the military. In addition to the equipment, the Ukrainian military received on-site training to ensure production of critical parts in the conflict zone.

Said Elisha Abbott, President at KVG: “In times of conflict, collaboration and agility can create crucial strategic advantage. Our partnership with Essentium is a perfect example. It has allowed us to rapidly deploy essential technology and sustainable mission support tools in Ukraine.”

Said Blake Teipel, Ph.D., CEO of Essentium: “KVG’s mission aligns with Essentium’s innovative 3D printing solutions to support the warfighter in challenging locations. This collaboration bridges the gap between 3D printing and traditional manufacturing to allow Ukraine to create vital components in real-time, enhance field effectiveness, and strengthen the warfighter’s capabilities.”

While the initial focus was on military support, Essentium and KVG have also developed medical applications in conflict settings using 3D printing. These innovations answer urgent medical needs and underscore the partnership’s holistic approach.

Despite the challenges both companies have faced, they have maintained a coordinated response to supply chain issues, ensuring efficient allocation of resources and rapid response to critical needs in Ukraine.

The collaboration between Essentium and KVG underscores the transformative potential of 3D printing in times of crisis. Through rapid deployment and training, this technology can make a critical difference in conflict regions like Ukraine.
