BASF Forward AM

Forward AM is part of BASF and in Emmen the FFF department of Forward AM is housed, where the Ultrafuse filaments are produced and sold. We are one of the largest manufacturers in Europe with an exclusive focus on filaments for FFF printing.

It started in 2012 when we made the first monofilament for 3D printing upon request of a printer manufacturer.

Since then, we have developed a broad product portfolio.

End of 2015, being Innofil3D, we invested in new production equipment.

Computer-controlled machinery combined with many years of experience delivers reliable, accurate and consistent filament.

We select the best raw materials available from renowned suppliers.

All our products are 100% traceable to the source.

Innofil3D was acquired by BASF in 2017 and the BASF Ultrafuse brand was created in 2018 for more industrial filaments. In November 2019, BASF Forward AM was launched – the BASF branch for Additive Manufacturing. Ultrafuse is the product group name for all FFF materials from BASF Forward AM.

Ultrafuse rely on 25 years of experience in polymer development and filament extrusion.

Ultrafuse are integrated in a worldwide network of renowned raw material suppliers, compounders, research institutes and additives manufacturers.

Development takes place in our own laboratories and pilot plant facilities including testing of printing behavior on selected 3D printers.

Ultrafuse develop materials which give 3D printing professionals the competitive edge: improve productivity (faster and reliable printing), lower costs, reduce time to market and print with high performance materials.

Our drive: the perfect filament for your 3D printing application.

Ultrafuse select the best raw materials available from renowned suppliers. These arrive at their factory in pellets, which are packed in big-bags or octabins of 1000 kg each.

First step is to carefully dry these pellets prior to processing them. This ensures the best printing results.

For some filaments, they mix different materials together in order to get the specific printing properties for the application.

They prefer to use raw materials which are safe to use and which are safe for the environment.

Most of our materials are safe for food contact.

All our products are 100% traceable to the source.
