Partnerships and announcements of sales are often synonyms of growth in the additive manufacturing industry. This week, French companies have demonstrated another sign of growth in that regard.

3DCeram-Sinto has started a collaboration with the German experts DORST Technologies to further develop its offer around additive manufacturing.

This Franco-German agreement will enable the French company to expand its commercial development in the overseas markets, in Northern Europe but also in the United States, where DORST Technologies is established. Furthermore, such a collaboration will imply that both companies will enable their customers to increase their production capabilities for 3D ceramic printing parts and support the international expansion of 3DCeram-Sinto.

The company has been providing the market with 3D printed ceramic parts since 2005 produced using its own 3D printer: the CERAMAKER printer.

As far as sales are concerned, Prodways has announced the first sales of its ProMaker LD-10 3D printer; a 3D printer that will increase the accessibility of MOVINGLight® range to new segment of dental laboratories. For the French group, it is the first time that a new client directly invests in two machines. The order could be followed by other purchases, depending on how quickly the production gets up to speed and taking into account that this sector requires industrial machines priced below €100,000.
