Techniplas and Sharebot team up to boost additive manufacturing
In order to accelerate additive manufacturing, Sharebot will join Techniplas’ Open Innovation Program. The maker of professional grade 3D printers will place a great number of its latest large format 3D printers at Techniplas’ new Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center in Ventura.
The idea of Techniplas, global design and manufacturing provider, is to embed 3D printed tools, jigs and fixtures that are powered by Sharebot into its factories in order to accelerate operational yields and develop cost effective flexible manufacturing cells. This is another milestone for Techniplas in the 3D printing market which launched in June a 3D printing unit for rapid tooling development.
“Sharebot’s printers are the ideal complement to our additive manufacturing strategy,” said Avi Reichental, Vice-Chairman, Techniplas and CEO, Techniplas Digital. “As part of our open innovation initiative, we look to attract and work with partners that can deliver the necessary resources, technology and capabilities required toward making the connected world a reality. Sharebot provides Techniplas with the advanced manufacturing proficiencies that we seek to roll out throughout our network of partners and factories.”
This winning team will go beyond traditional methods of manufacturing to create premium products in a safer and cost-effective way.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Techniplas as we look to expand the adoption of our 3D printing solutions into the North American market and beyond,” said Arturo Donghi, CEO, Sharebot. “Techniplas and its leadership demonstrate a clear vision of how digital fabrication is defining and shaping the future of manufacturing, and we look forward to working with them as our additive manufacturing partner.“
