Prototyping company Quickparts, joined Roboze 3D Parts Network by Roboze, an industrial 3D printer manufacturer. Quickparts believes that this step enhances the local production of customized parts globally via industrial 3D printing systems and innovative materials.
Quickparts says that it has installed the first Roboze solution, ARGO 500, in its Seattle headquarters where it will be utilized to serve the aerospace and industrial companies across the U.S.
“As industry experts, we have followed Roboze from the beginning and were immediately impressed by how the company and its technology have grown over the years. We needed to expand our systems to more quickly meet our customers’ needs to produce end-use parts accurately and with high-performance polymeric materials. Roboze proved to be the best choice in terms of versatility, quality, and repeatability,” said Ziad Abou, CEO of Quickparts.
Contributions by Roboze in additive manufacturing
Previously, Roboze launched two 3D printers as well as two additional printing filaments.
The One PRO and Plus PRO machines, which reportedly use Roboze’s patent-protected high-temperature FFF technology, comprise the PRO series, which replaces the older Roboze One product line. These releases are aimed specifically at tooling and functional prototyping applications involving high-performance composite and polymer materials.
Elsewhere, Canadian 3D printing powder manufacturer Equispheres, and Roboze both received funding valuing millions of dollars to enhance their respective businesses. Although Roboze did not disclose the approximate amount of capital raised, the company used the funds to expedite its growth in the United States and to assist in the creation of a novel “super material” in its Italian R&D center. Meanwhile, Equispheres was anticipated to utilize the $3.5 million it received from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FEDDEV) to boost the output of its metal powder materials for 3D printing.
“We are thrilled to welcome Quickparts among our partners of the Roboze 3D Parts network. When companies like these decide to join our vision, the value we can create for end users in a variety of industries is outstanding and will really accelerate the transition to smarter and more eco-sustainable production methods,” said Francesco Pantaleone, VP of Business Development at Roboze.
Additive manufacturing networks
Another example of an additive manufacturing network is that of EOS, the leading manufacturer of powder bed fusion (PBF) 3D printers, which recently launched its latest Contract Manufacturing Network. The network connects established AM production partners with end users, enabling them to manufacture high-quality parts quickly and reliably. The network will commence in EMEA with seven partners: FKM, Erpro, Volum-E, Pankl, Materialise, Oerlikon, and Hasenauer & Hesser. EOS’s Contract Manufacturing Network complements the services it already offers through its partner networks. Customers seeking dependable AM partners rather than manufacturing their own parts can contact the network for help with everything from rapid prototyping to small series volumes of 1,000 parts.
Elsewhere, an additive manufacturing network launched by Siemens, is a cloud-based solution that encourages collaboration among engineers and suppliers in the creation of 3D printed parts. Moreover, Siemens Gas and Power, the company’s oil and gas division, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) worked together to develop additive manufacturing training services that were made available through Materials Solutions.
Zvi Feuer, Senior Vice President of Manufacturing Engineering at Siemens Digital Industries Software, said, “Siemens’ additive manufacturing experts and industry veterans have developed the network based on a clear understanding of the complexities and needs of the industry, fostered by a sincere passion to promote the adoption of AM in the industrial domain. As buyers, sellers and partners continue to plug into the ecosystem, they will find a streamlined, modular solution that can grow with each company’s individual needs.”
