R & D Cooperation

R & D Cooperation

KEXCELLED attaches great importance to innovation and research and development.
In order to fully improve the energy efficiency of research and development, we actively establish extensive and in-depth cooperation with well-known enterprises and universities such as LEVOSS, DOW, HUNTSMAN, Sichuan University,UPM etc.

UPM is a longstanding Finnish family business that originated in 1996, specializing in the forestry sector. As a global company, UPM has a broad presence in various fields such as pulp, paper, energy, biorefining, and wood processing. Prioritizing sustainable development, UPM is committed to delivering innovative solutions to meet customer needs and drive industry progress.

LEVOSS is a family-owned business boasting an impressive 125-year history, renowned for their extensive expertise in the development and customization of carbon fiber reinforced composite materials. As their worldwide partner, we have collaborated to develop a range of carbon and glass fiber reinforced composites, enabling new possibilities for high-performance applications in 3D printed products.

DOW is a multinational corporation with a focus on technology. We are currently collaborating with DOW to advance the use of lightweight materials in the field of 3D printing. The material in question is a type of polyolefin that significantly minimizes warping and ensures superior printability. This collaboration is paving the way for the production of lightweight and durable components with outstanding chemical resistance.

Wanhua Chemical, a Fortune 500 company, is a global leader in the production of innovative chemical materials. Their range of Thermoplastic Polyurethane Elastomers (TPU), which includes materials such as TPU K7 55D, TPU K7 70A, TPU K7 75A, TPU K7 77D, TPU K7 85A, TPU K7 90A, TPU K7 95AE, and TPU K7 95A, has greatly expanded the potential applications of 3D printing in the footwear industry.

Sichuan University, a prominent ‘Double First-Class’ institution, is directly administered by the Ministry of Education and centrally managed at a vice-ministerial level. We have fostered a deep collaboration with them across numerous domains, specifically in the realm of polylactic acid (PLA) materials. Our joint research involves exploring the fundamental properties of PLA and its advanced applications in 3D printing. This includes efforts to increase the transparency and toughness of PLA materials, enhance their heat resistance, and optimize high-speed printing processes. We are pleased to report significant progress in these areas.
