Verashape launches its open innovation program dedicated to additive manufacturing

You’ve certainly already heard about this name while referring to Techniplas, however, Verashape also marks a milestone in the industry by launching today its Open Innovation Program. VSHAPER Open Innovation will focus on R&D within the additive manufacturing industry and will involve potential customers in creating solutions that will enhance their production processes.

Just as Techniplas Open Innovation Program has attracted a wide range of specialized companies within the industry, Verashape will welcome industrial companies to foster the implementation of 5-axis 3D Printing technology.

A lot is still to be made on the 5-Axis Machine that will be available to purchase in 2019; however, the Poland-based manufacturer wanted to present its effects in order to include other companies in the development process.

We already know the machine integrates FDM technology and is equipped with tilting rotary working platform.

Our machine enables indexed 5-axis printing, enhancing the conventional model printing method allowing to transfer the print plane to another surface that was printed earlier. It also allows simultaneous 5-axis printing that moves away from the conventional layer-by-layer printing method and allows creating spatial models on a three-dimensional surface, by using all the machine axes simultaneously”, says Marek Kantowski, R&D Lead Engineer from VERASHAPE.

With a cylinder with a 300 mm diameter and a 300 mm height, VSHAPER 5-Axis Machine comprises a tool store allowing the use of few different heads in one printing process. The constant temperature inside the working chamber and the heated platform enable the printer to process most of thermoplastic materials.

As part of the VSHAPER Open Innovation program, we will do our absolute best to make sure that the R&D work we conduct on the 5-axis machine supporting additive manufacturing are beneficial to specific recipients of this innovative technology. Companies interested in the implementation of 5D Printing technology, as they are a reality today, have a direct and real impact on the functionality of the machine, which will eventually help their production processes”, adds Tomasz Szymański, the founder and CEO of VERASHAPE.
