Chinese company INTAMSYS is known for its high-performance FUNMAT 3D printer series, which is designed to print with functional materials. INTAMSYS has seen a great deal of success with its machines, and is growing a strong global presence as it completes its funding. Now the company is moving into Japan through a new partnership that will strengthen its position in the Asian market.
INTAMSYS is partnering with Fusion Technology Co. Ltd., a Japanese company specializing in 3D design and printing for a diverse range of markets, including architecture, manufacturing, medicine, education, anime, and more. Also part of the deal is Canon Marketing Japan, one of Fusion Technology’s reselling partners, which will help promote and market INTAMSYS 3D printers and 3D printing solutions to industrial companies in Japan.
“More Japanese industrial manufacturers are increasingly embracing industrial additive manufacturing solutions for business-critical applications due to strong quality, high consistency and cost effectiveness,” said Mr. Inoue, CEO of Fusion Technology. “INTAMSYS has presented a strong proven track record of delivering cutting-edge high performance material 3D printing solution to industrial end-users globally. Meanwhile, Fusion technology has built up a broad industrial customer base locally through decades of successful reselling experience, evidenced by our direct partnership with Canon. We believe this cooperation will complement each other very well in exploring more markets and possibilities in Japan.”
INTAMSYS is exhibiting with its new partners at the DMS Tokyo, which is taking place from June 20th to the 22nd. This will be the first time that the FUNMAT HT and the FUNMAT PRO HT are exhibited in Japan, marking INTAMSYS’ official entry into the country through its partnerships.
“Globally, Japanese firms have earned the reputation of having very high requirements on quality and reliability for machinery,” said Charles Han, CEO of INTAMSYS. “INTAMSYS is delighted to be recognized by Fusion Technology and Canon through this strong partnership and we look forward to serving the Japanese end users with machines and 3D printing solutions that come with the highest quality and state-of-the-art engineering capability.”
By introducing the FUNMAT series into Japan, INTAMSYS will be introducing high-quality, industrial-grade 3D printing solutions. The FUNMAT HT and FUNMAT PRO HT are high-temperature 3D printers capable of printing with more than 20 functional materials, including six high-performance materials: PEEK, PEKK, ULTEM 9085, ULTEM 1010, PPSU and PSU. They can also print with ABS, polycarbonate (PC) and nylon, the most widely-used engineering-grade thermoplastics. The FUNMAT HT and FUNMAT PRO HT feature heated build chambers and build plates as well as high-temperature nozzles, which enable them to print a wide variety of materials with ease.
INTAMSYS also utilizes an open materials system for its 3D printers, allowing customers a great deal of versatility in what they use to print. In addition to selling its 3D printers, INTAMSYS also offers a 3D printing service, and works closely with customers and partners around the world in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, medicine, engineering, oil and gas, electronics, education, and research. Applications include tools, jigs and fixtures, concept modeling, visualization aiding, functional prototyping, and the manufacturing of end-use parts.
Japan is a leader in Asia in terms of technological advancement and research, and its 3D printing industry has expanded as major companies choose to expand their presences there. The country will benefit greatly from the presence of INTAMSYS and its high-performance 3D printers, and INTAMSYS will benefit from being part of a large, diverse market. As INTAMSYS continues to grow, it will continue to make an impact in the 3D printing industry, which is turning more and more towards the 3D printing of functional, end-use parts.
