Having used a Zortrax M200 3D printer myself, it’s no surprise to hear that when the machines were implemented at the Bosch plant in Mondeville, France, everyone found themselves quite pleased. When Zortrax tells you that this 3D printer is reliable, efficient, and precise, they aren’t just throwing fluffy marketing jargon at you. The M200 lives up to its reputation, and because of that, a new partnership has been formed between Zortrax and the electronics manufacturer.
Founded in 1886, Bosch has long been a leader in their industry, certainly producing not just electronics but also excelling in making power tools, appliances, the ABS braking system and a long list of automotive inventions, the Bosch eBike system, and software solutions.
Bosch also partners with other companies around the world in offering e-health, energy, smart home, and mobile solutions. As their Mondeville plant needed to create specialized tools for making small modules for electronic devices, the Bosch team turned to Zortrax.
Headquartered in northeastern Poland, in Olsztyn, Zortrax manufactures hardware, software, and materials for businesses of any size, and offers workshops too. Their M200 has been widely acclaimed, and the company now works with resellers in over 50 countries. This partnership with Bosch is evidence of Zortrax hardware offering all of its greatest benefits to an international company expecting quality in machinery.
“Prior to implementation of the 3D printing technology, we tested several devices and solutions available on the market,” said Frederic Boumaza, managing director of the Bosch production plant in Mondeville. “Eventually, we have selected the Zortrax M200. From our perspective, the most crucial advantages of the 3D printing solutions by Zortrax are reliability and high performance. The M200 is an integrated, standalone device, ready to work just out of the box, and it requires minimal maintenance with no risk if something gets loose and interrupts the work.”
The Bosch team was able to improve productivity and efficiency in their plant, thanks to customized 3D printing of their necessary tools, without any headaches.
“This is a very solid piece of machinery, finding its right spot in the industrial environment,” said Boumaza. “We are glad to admit that after over 2,000 hours of work in total, printers don’t require any maintenance or adjustments.”
While 3D printers have made remarkable impacts in so many sectors for smaller boutiques and designers engrossed in artistic ventures including everything from jewelry to lingerie, very serious transformation is happening within the industrial world. And for companies like Bosch, 3D printing in their plants means getting down to serious business as they require great precision and detailed work no matter the project. Their partnership will continue, and they’ve announced that they will also be developing printing materials together for the electronics industry.
Zortrax was recognized with a World’s Top 10 3D Printer Award for the Zortrax M200 in Make: Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing 2015; 3D Hubs Best Plug & Play Device of 2015, 2016; and 3D Hubs Highest Rated Desktop Device of 2015. We’ll continue with great interest to watch the progress of those innovating with their products around the world.
