Robert Bosch recently invested in Ultimaker 3 Extended printers in order to extend innovation across the world: Germany, Hungary, China, India, the United States and Mexico for printing prototypes, tooling, jigs and fixtures.

Bosch’s objective is to deliver innovations for a connected world. By exploiting additive manufacturing, the company will benefit from manufacturing and design costs.

With the integration of Ultimaker 3D printers in its manufacturing department, Bosch can benefit from a uniform 3D printing solution with materials, training and global support. This approach will ensure consistent, quality 3D printing results across teams and locations.

Jos Burger, CEO at Ultimaker shares the company’s satisfaction and willingness to serve Bosch:  “The team at Ultimaker is working hard to make 3D printing accessible by continuously improving our hardware, software, materials and services. This global investment of Bosch confirms that our 3D printing ecosystem is ready to advance innovation on a global scale. The quality and speed of our service is the same in all countries, which helps our clients to go from an idea to manufacturing validation in just a few days, no matter where they are in the world.”

Last, this announcement also confirms a forecast of a former report on the global market of 3D printing technology. Indeed, according to this report, the market would reach nearly $12 billion in 2018.
