Earlier this year, the Bari, Italy-based 3D printing company Roboze released their much anticipated Roboze One+400 3D printer, a low-cost desktop device capable of printing with professional-grade materials like PEEK (polyetherketone) and PEI (polyetherimide). Originally regarded by the 3D printing industry for their ‘belt-less’ mechatronic structure, Roboze has continued to keep itself relevant in a relatively faltering desktop 3D printer market. Capable of printing with over 12 different types of professional-grade materials on their desktop platform, Roboze has even performed rigorous stress and heat testing on the PEEK material, ensuring that the 3D printing process is fully optimized for their consumers.
Now, the Italian company is broadening their reach into the Balkan Peninsula, strategically partnering up with the Athens, Greece-based Lino S.A., an experienced retailer of integrated printing solutions in the area. The new agreement will serve to expand the presence that Roboze currently has in South East Europe. The partnership serves to confirm the strategic growth that Roboze has undertaken, particularly since they appointed Gil Lavi as the Global VP of their recent EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) expansion. Lavi played a similar role in his previous position for Stratasys, and is set to help Roboze expand their hardware from Europe to the rest of the world.
“This agreement is crucial to shorten the distance with the countries of Southeast Europe which, now more than ever, are looking for an innovative tool to accelerate their economic growth and be more competitive in the market,” says Alessio Lorusso, Roboze’s CEO. “I am very excited and I’m sure the team Lino S.A will be a valid representative of our solutions and of our brand character.”
Through their distribution channels, Lino will offer the the full line of Roboze products, including their original entry-level 3D printer, the Roboze One, as well as their latest 3D printer, the Roboze One+400. Both printers utilize the same patented X and Y ‘belt-less’ movement, while the professional-grade One+400 goes a step beyond to enable users to print with a number of unique and high quality materials. In addition to the PEEK and PEI material, the Roboze One+400 is also compatible with Carbon PA, PC, ABS, and TPU, to name a few.
“We are confident of the success of this partnership to follow up on our mission to provide the best products and the most complete solutions for our customers,” stated Lefteris Havouzis, Managing Director of Lino S.A.
With Roboze’s ability to print with professional-grade thermoplastics on the desktop level, and Lino S.A.’s distribution prowess in the regions of South East Europe, this latest partnership could certainly help Roboze garner the international recognition that it deserve for its patented printing process and vast material viability. All in all, the company has risen as Italy’s most prominent desktop 3D printer manufacturer, and are now looking to conquer the global market with their Roboze One+400 on the front line.
