Sygnis SA The company has announced it has signed an agreement Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, under which it has been granted a license to use the university’s newly developed method of modifying 3D printing filament.
According to Sygnis, the Liquid for Fused Deposition Modelling technique (LFDM) allows the direct introduction of dyes and radioactive substances in the printing process. It also allows the introduction of nanoparticles or trace elements.
Sygnis claims that the technology makes it possible to incorporate chemical substances into polymer fibers, which were previously not possible due to physical or chemical changes occurring during processing. The company claims that the LFDM technology eliminates the need to use energy-intensive and expensive processing equipment. Sygnis claims that this method can easily be used in any laboratory, even by those without access to special devices.

“It was a unique and simple concept of how to directly combine chemistry with 3D printing. Our team developed the method three years ago. After preparing the patent application, we have published our solution and encourage you to use the LFDM method and its further creative development,” said Professor Robert E. Przekop from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.
The license that is covered by the agreement covers manufacturing, marketing and distribution of the products created as a result using the invention. The license was granted in Poland until June 27, 2033 in exchange for royalties.
Sygnis says that obtaining the license will enable the company to increase revenue derived from sales of 3D printing accessories/peripherals over the term of the license. The company claims that a successful collaboration with the university will allow it to further develop its scientific institution cooperation.
