Sicnova 3D, headquartered in Linares, Spain, has announced a series of agreements that the company believes are “a giant step in its strategy as a manufacturer.”
Based at the Campus Científico-Tecnológico of Linares, Sicnova is a developer and manufacturer of advanced 3D solutions for industry. Products include the large format JCR 1000 and JCR 600 3D printers and the automated 3D scanner Cloneinspector 3D.
Large format 3D printing
In recent months Sicnova has signed contracts with XYZPrinting to manufacture an own brand version of the JCR 1000 and JCR 600 3D printer in second half of 2018. The 3D printers have build volumes of 1000x600x600 mm and 580x400x500 mm respectively, a wide technical materials portfolio, heated and controlled chamber and interchangeable nozzles.
A deal with Techniplas means that Sicnova will be joining Sharebot and DWS as part of the U.S. company’s open innovation program. Speaking about the news Avi Reichental, Vice-Chairman, Techniplas and CEO, Techniplas Digital commented, “[this] announcement underscores our strong commitment to digital transformation through the expansion of an open innovation program that brings together the best and brightest industry players. With Sicnova’s 3D printers at our new Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center, we can take our digital manufacturing capabilities to the next level leveraging some of the largest format engineered plastics printers available in the market today.”
Advanced industrial solutions
Ángel Llavero, CEO of Grupo Sicnova adds, “Both agreements and some others signed during Formnext regarding Cloneinspector 3D give us a good example of the current value of Sicnova 3D in the international 3D market as a developer and manufacturer of advanced industrial solutions.” Sicnova has now reached agreement for distributing products in 15 countries.
While XYZPrinting will manufacture own brand versions of Sicnova products, in line with other recently announced deals, Ángel Llavero was also keen to explain the importance of controlling the production process in its entirety: “one of the added values of Sicnova 3D is having the full process of development, production and testing of our products in our own facilities. We don’t have to externalise our manufacturing processes, which helps us ensure the best user experience to our customers”.
