Italy’s Roboze has brought a lot to professional 3D printing since introducing the Roboze One 3D printer back in early 2015. This year, the company released their One+400 3D printer, set to bring low-cost PEEK and PEI 3D printing capabilities to the desktop — and earlier this month revamped that unit to be a fully industrial 3D printer with even more to offer professional users.
As any company knows, though, a promising product is only part of the package — for true success, that product needs to be able to reach users. For larger-scale success, it stands to reason that the reach would expand. Roboze not only understands this concept, and the importance of distribution, but has been very actively putting it into practice. This summer, Roboze broadened its reach into the Balkans through a strategic partnership, following that up last month with an expansion into new markets in the EMEA region. Just this month, Roboze continued its approach to distribution widening via a partnership making their 3D printers available in India.
This week, the busy company announced another partnership aimed at bringing additive manufacturing capabilities to more users. Announced yesterday, Roboze has established a reseller partnership with NextStep3D. Through this new agreement, NexStep3D will resell Roboze products in the Benelux (Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg) region.
“After several months of fast growth in our business we can definitely say that it’s mostly fueled by large high-technological corporations looking for one major thing – advanced materials. As the awareness of 3d printing keeps growing, professional users seeks solutions for advanced applications based on high thermoplastics materials, which widen their abilities to improve manufacturing processes. NextStep3D is another great example of a 3d solution provider that identify this need and now decided to add powerful solutions to his portfolio” Gil Lavi, Roboze’s VP Sales & Business Development, noted of this partnership.
3D printers from Roboze are, according to the company, the only beltless desktop 3D printers in the world. The machines’ capabilities include production of high-quality products using 12 materials, including many that are traditionally tricky to print on desktop machines, including PEEK, PEI, and Carbon-PA. The Roboze One+400 is available now through NextStep3D for users in the Benelux region who have been waiting their turn to get their hands on this advanced machine.
NextStep3D, part of the Mikrocentrum High Tech Platform — which networks more than 600 innovative Dutch production industry participants — offers 3D printing hardware and consulting services. 3D printers from Roboze will add to the company’s already extensive portfolio of 3D printing technologies available, covering DLP moving light, laser sintering, DLP fixed, and FDM technologies. In addition to 3D printers, NextStep3D additionally offers a wide variety of materials (liquid resins, polymer powders, and filaments) as well as services (consultancy and engineering; installation and training; and support, service, and maintenance).
“We are excited to partner with Roboze, one of the most innovative 3d manufacturers in the market today. The company technology offers a unique combination of printing high-end materials together with a one-of-a-kind beltless system to an end result of high quality parts. This empowers customers with a solution for a variety of plastic additive manufacturing applications,” said Bas Beltman, Nextstep3D CEO.
