Back in August, Polish company Verashape introduced the VSHAPER 3D printer line, the result of a project sponsored by the National Centre for Research and Development 2014-2020. The goal was to develop an innovative, versatile 3D printer with a global distribution network, and they succeeded – the VSHAPER line has already been adopted by diverse industries including aerospace, automotive, foundry, design, education, medicine, etc. It also includes a customizable 3D printer, a rarity especially in industrial 3D printing.
In terms of global distribution, Verashape is making quick progress. In just a few months’ time, VSHAPER printers have already established a solid presence in Poland, Germany, and the United States, and the company is continuously working hard to expand their network. Printer development hasn’t slowed either; less than a month ago, Verashape unveiled the newest addition to the VSHAPER line: the VSHAPER GO, a user-friendly desktop printer geared towards beginners as well as professionals. It’s currently available for pre-sale.
“Providing solutions for industry, we meet many 3D Print enthusiasts, who pointed out that our solutions, though very successful in production and prototyping, when used in a smaller scale appear to be too technologically advanced,” said Jacek Wach, Verashape’s Marketing Manager. “To meet their expectations we have created the new model of VSHAPER printer, and almost instantly sold first copies.”
Now, Verashape has announced a new initiative aimed at making their printers even more easily accessible. 3D printers, overall – especially industrial 3D printers – are a big investment, and smaller companies in particular may hesitate to buy one, even if they’re interested in incorporating 3D printing into their operations. Verashape is now offering an appealing alternative with a long-term 3D printer rental program.
The program allows companies to hire out any VSHAPER 3D printer for an extended period of time. It’s the perfect solution for organizations that require a 3D printer for a particular project but don’t necessarily need to own one for their overall operations, and it’s also a great opportunity for a company – or individual – to try out a 3D printer on a trial basis before deciding whether or not to invest in a purchase.
Verashape already offers 3D design and printing services, but the new program allows both established and new customers to take their printing needs into their own hands.
“Being a unit that provides 3D Printing services, when enriching our offer with a new printer we obviously had to live up to the expectations of many production companies interested in the option of 3D Printer rental,” said Tomasz Szymański, founder and CEO of Verashape. “We see it as the next stage in the development process of the companies who have already used our 3D printing services for single orders.”
When they say long-term, they mean long-term – Verashape offers rental periods from one year to more than three years. As part of the long-term rental program, Verashape will also provide installation, training and continuous technical support services. If you’re interested, you can request more information or go ahead and sign up for a rental here. Discuss in the VSHAPER Rental forum at 3DPB.com.
