Roboze Enters Strategic Partnership with Inovsys to Develop and Study New 3D Printing Materials for Aerospace and Medical Sectors
Usually when we talk about Italian 3D printer manufacturer Roboze, the company has announced an expansion into, or a partnership with, yet another country, everywhere from Asia and the UK to the Benelux region and the US. Now, Roboze is working with a company in France, but it’s not an expansion – technology transfer service company Inovsys SAS, located in Marignane in Provence, has just signed an agreement with Roboze to develop and study new 3D printing materials for the aerospace and medical sectors.
Inovsys offers services that allow industries to manage risk while integrating various innovations. It is actually an alliance of leading investors, ranging from laboratories and large companies to SMEs and the French government, that benefits TEAM Henri-Fabre, a French consortium of organizations that operates internationally and focuses on materials, mechanics, and future processes.
In addition to helping SMEs develop products and processes that can increase production efficiency, Inovsys works on research and development for technologies like 3D printing, as in its strategic partnership with Roboze.
Guilhem Monti, the president of Inovsys, said, “Roboze was the best partner regarding field of expertise and specificities of our ongoing collaborative project.”
The collaboration between the two, which aims to develop new 3D printing solutions and materials for aerospace and medical purposes, is supported by Kreos, Roboze’s commercial partner and 3D printer reseller in France. The materials development will take place within the framework of TEAM Henri-Fabre, which promotes a new industrial development model that’s led by technological opportunities and innovation.
The goal of the public-private Henri-Fabre project is to reinforce the collective cross-fertilization between multiple industries, such as energy, transportation, biomedical, and aeronautics – it encourages project partners to combine their skills, resources, and projects in order to build a network of innovation, and to develop industrial excellence in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA) territory of France.
Roboze and Inovsys will begin their 3D printing materials research and development by first evaluating the impact that the technology will have on the market over the next several months. With 3D printing already being used in the aerospace sector to manufacture aircraft interior parts, improve turbines, and build other components, and printing everything from patient-specific models to prosthetics and even skin in the medical field, I think it’s safe to say that the impact will only be positive.
Roboze already has some experience with developing 3D printing materials for aerospace use, so the partnership was a smart move on the part of Inovsys, which will also acquire Roboze’s advanced 3D printer as part of the agreement. The company has already developed some unique 3D printing technology of its own, and knows what it’s talking about when it comes to materials: its Roboze One 3D printer is capable of 3D printing with 10 different materials.
“This collaboration confirms how, once again, our offer is able to support several companies and to foresee new technologies designed to create more advanced systems and applications and to insert them quickly on the market. Thanks to the partnership with Inovsys SAS, as well as in general with Henri-Fabre team, we have the chance to develop advanced production techniques, aimed to deliver the best solutions to our customers in a faster way,” said Alessio Lorusso, the founder and CEO of Roboze.
