Kodak's imaging science expertise a perfect fit for 3D applications and more with new partner Evolve Additive Solutions

Companies scale production capabilities and speed of additive manufacturing with electrophotographic technology

Rochester, N.Y., and Minneapolis, MN, November 5, 2018 - Today Eastman Kodak

and Evolve Additive Solutions, Inc. announced a technology partnership where Kodak will
supply Evolve imaging systems, parts and consumables based on the KODAK NEXPRESS
digital electrophotographic platform. In addition, the companies have signed Joint Development
Agreements for equipment and materials with the goal of helping further develop Evolves
Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP) technology in anticipation of the
commercial release in 2020. STEP is Evolves proprietary 3D printing technology for additive
manufacturing. Kodak has also licensed relevant intellectual property to Evolve in support of the
development effort.

Kodak has been pioneering work with electrophotographic technology for more than 40
years. The award-winning KODAK NEXPRESS Platform delivers unique print capabilities in a
modular and upgradeable package, making it an ideal platform for Evolve to leverage and
transform into a leading production technology for additive manufacturing. Evolve will be utilizing
a Kodak-developed toner manufacturing process to make the part toners for the Evolve system.
The electrophotographic technology is part of the whole solution comprising hardware,
materials, processes, workflow software, and services required to print and finish parts cost
effectively at high quality and high speed. Collaboration and cross fertilization of ideas between
the two teams is expected to reach beyond materials and components to manufacturing, service
and support.

"We are very encouraged by the opportunity to expand our electrophotographic platform
capabilities outside of 2D imaging to the 3D printing or additive manufacturing sector," said John
OGrady, President, Print Systems Division, Kodak. "Having worked closely with the talented
staff of engineers working on the STEP technology for several years, we are confident Evolve
will help change the way the organizations approach production of plastic parts for

Evolves STEP technology will sit alongside traditional manufacturing processes, such
as injection molding on the manufacturing floor, augmenting an organizations production
capabilities allowing freedom of design and "toolless" production. The first STEP system has
shipped under an alpha development program and has been installed at a strategic partner
location utilizing resources from both Kodak and Evolve.

"Creating a strong technology partnership with Kodak is an important element in the
development of STEP," said Steve Chillscyzn, CEO of Evolve Additive Solutions. "The selection
of the Kodak systems and technology for STEP allows us to deliver to the market a highlyreliable
solution, based on a proven engine that is recognized as one of the most productive
printing systems in world. By working with Kodak, we have a technology and a collaborative
relationship that will not only allow us to get to market quickly, but we will have the throughput
expansion to grow as we push STEP capabilities into the future."
