Polish 3D printer manufacturer Zmorph has undergone rebranding and unveiled a new 3D printer—Zmorph Fab—in their portfolio. The company is shifting toward the industrial sector with a new brand image and marketing communications, and plans to release an industrial 3D printer in Q1 2021.
3D Printer that Delivers
Today, Zmorph unveiled a revamped website and brand image, along with a brand new product added to its portfolio, Zmorph Fab. The company’s new marketing strategy is directed at the professional market sector, seeking to unlock further growth in industrial fields. Founded in 2012, Zmorph is building upon nearly a decade of industry experience and adapting to the needs of a shifting market.
Zmorph’s new brand image features a modern, technical appearance that goes with the new Zmorph core, built around the brand essence: 3D printer that delivers.
The company’s mission is to learn, improve, and deliver exactly what its customers need. The Zmorph portfolio will grow with new reliable and high-quality 3D printers in the following years.
“It’s the single most important moment for the Zmorph brand since its founding back in 2012. We evolved from a dynamic startup into a reliable brand and partner for professionals in over 120 countries. The rebranding will enable Zmorph to further expand into the global market, accomplish global growth objectives and to strengthen our professional image. Today, more than ever Zmorph is becoming more competitive and offers more capabilities to our customers and business partners,” said Bartosz Lanc, ZMorph’s CMO.
Zmorph has grown a lot in recent years. In 2020, the company acquired 3D Printers, owner of the HBOT brand. HBOT’s experience in industry-grade 3D printers manufacturing enabled the company to create a synergy effect in its R&D department and prepared the company to move into a professional market segment. The fusion resulted in a stronger engineering team working on expanding Zmorph’s product portfolio with new 3D printers and solutions for modern manufacturing.
Additionally, Zmorph established partnerships with well-known distributors such as Profound3D, Matterhackers in the US; 3D Criar in Brazil; 3D Prima, Hava3D, RS Components in Europe; Maxwell, Beets 3D, Maha Chem in Asia; Torstar in Australia, and more. The company took in 5 million PLN (around $1.3M) in a financing round at the beginning of 2020 and is talking with new investors to further bolster its growth.
In the first quarter of 2021, the company plans to present Zmorph i500. This workbench 3D printer for professionals includes a huge work area, single & dual extrusion 3D printing, and a competitive quality-to-price ratio. More news on this product launch will be announced soon.
“We have had a very good year despite COVID. I do not want to say that we are where we want to be, but our growth is secured as firm as never before and our strategy is solid, reliable, and backed up by investors who trust in it as strong as we do in Zmorph,” stated Maciej Nawrocki, Zmorph’s CEO. “The 3D printing market is maturing, moving towards professional and industrial applications. Anticipating this direction two years ago thanks to our smart marketing guys and customer-sensitive sales we have created a product roadmap that addresses the trend. Next year is the year of launching our new products.
“Our proposal for the professional and industrial market will be a strong hit in the segment. We take lots of experience coming from HBOT F300, an industrial printer which was successful in Poland, and our workhorse Zmorph VX, now Fab, which paved its way to the most demanding customers in the Consumer segment. We have acquired the industrial product technology and know-how together with the acquisition of the firm 3D Printers last year. Our joint R&D departments, by which I mean Zmorph and HBOT, are working now on a product that addresses professional expectations in terms of reliability, repeatability, and reproducibility, as well as serviceability. This will be an offer where we deliver a full ecosystem. There will be not only the machine, but we have also re-developed our slicer software and on-machine firmware, and we are in the process of acquiring a filaments producer renowned for its quality. This is to secure predictable and no-surprise delivery for the Zmorph i500. We will work together with our great distributors and resellers to place it on the market in the first half of 2021. This will be a global launch where our current rebranding and wide marketing campaign will support our partners in an efficient reach to our end customers who we are sure will benefit from the value we bring with our new Zmorph i500,” Nawrocki added.
Zmorph Fab, the Most Advanced and Easiest to Use, All-in-One 3D Printer
Today, the Polish manufacturer unveiled the new Zmorph Fab, the most advanced and easy-to-use all-in-one desktop 3D printer, successor to the well-known and versatile ZMorph VX. Zmorph Fab features an interchangeable toolhead system that allows 3D printing, CNC milling, and laser engraving and cutting with the same device.
“Zmorph Fab is made to be easy-to-use and reliable. The latter is crucial for a product that operates three different workflows and it’s meant to work 24/7. The new Zmorph Fab’s features are based on customers’ and business partners’ feedback, making it the most advanced yet easy-to-use all-in-one 3D printer on the market. With new features like HEPA/Fumes Filter, Zmorph Fab is a great addition to modern classrooms, FabLabs, workshops, and design labs,” said Eliza Wróbel, Product Manager at Zmorph.
The Brand New 3D Printing Single Extruder Toolhead
The all-new Single Extruder Toolhead delivers faster prints with the best quality. The new extruder now features motion sensors for filament detection. It’s now easier to feed the filament, and the machine will stop once it runs out of the material and wait for the user to feed the next spool of filament. The redesigned cooling fan improves air flow, which allows faster overhangs 3D printing.
The Advanced CNC Environment
Zmorph Fab features an expanded CNC workflow: starting from the new CNC worktable that was designed to allow easy and very stable material mounting (and is open for custom designs), to refurbished Voxelizer with CAM-standard workflow for CNC procedures with STEP operations, ability to change the tool within one G-code, and path visualization.
The Safety Measures Air Filtration and Smart Toolheads
Due to the demand for educational standards and user safety, the new Zmorph Fab is equipped with a HEPA/Carbon filtration system, which is optional for the users. The air filtration process makes it safer and cleaner to work with materials producing semi-toxic fumes and particles, such as ABS or fumes created during laser engraving.
Zmorph Fab detects which toolhead is installed with its SMART Toolheads System. Toolhead changing is now easier than ever before, which cuts time for workflow switching.
Last but not least, the new machine is equipped with industry-grade electronics, meaning that it is a desktop 3D printer, but with a heart of a professional industrial machine.
The New Voxelizer
To celebrate the release of Zmorph Fab, the company is also updating its slicing software. The new version of Voxelizer is ready for the refurbished CNC workflow, features more presets for 3D printing, and underwent rebranding to reflect the current brand image.
