3D printing has the potential to transform manufacturing processes and innovations. From industries as wide ranging as construction to product design.
We look at some current manufacturing collaboration opportunities to see what’s out there.
3D Printing for Product Design
What happens when you blend creative design with 3D printing? That’s what this Spanish company specialises in, with over 15 years of experience in the industry.
The company produces prototypes of products through 3D modelling and printing, bringing custom designs into reality with a variety of material options.
- Experience working with well-known international clients including Universal Pictures and Haribo
- Researching and working with 3D printing technologies for over 15 years
- Low-cost alternative for businesses
- Adaptable solutions
- Suitable for small batches
- Mixed material printing
- Experience in industrial design and product engineering
- Wide network of fabrication labs and producers
The company is looking for businesses to partner with who want to lower the production costs of prototypes.
3D Printing for Affordable Prototypes
A pioneering Singaporean company is looking to collaborate with European partners in need of 3D printing design, development and prototypes.
Whether it’s creating three dimensional figures from children’s drawings or customized parts for vehicles and industrial engineering, this company has a creative and detailed approach to 3D printing technologies. The benefit of creating detailed prototypes allows for easy design changes while keeping costs low.
- Ability to produce a wide variety of prototype variations
- Low cost
- Quick turn around
- Ability to create detailed, complex prototypes
- Utilising the latest 3D printing technology
The company is looking to work with European partners from any industry in need of prototype solutions.
3D Printing for Building Construction
3D printing has the potential to transform the construction industry as we know it. One Japanese company specialising in real estate is hoping to distribute their leading 3D printing technology to constructions around the country.
With experience in both the finance and real estate industries, the company is well placed to provide the most cost-effective solutions to make living more comfortable.
- Specific experience in finance and real estate
- Knowledge about Japanese consumer trends
- Offering help acquiring a patent in Japan
The company is looking for a partner with experience in the construction and 3D printing industries who is trying to break into the Japanese market with their product. The partner sought should also have distribution experience throughout the EU.
New Polymer Composites for 3D Printing
A longstanding Slovak research institute has developed a unique polymer composite to be used in 3D printing. Currently, most 3D printing processes use Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) or Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM).
However, the filament material used in these techniques wears quickly, needing regular replacement. This company has developed a more durable alternative- recycled polyethylene terephthalate glycol which is more resistant and longer lasting.
- Environmentally friendly
- Lower in cost
- Higher impact resistance
- Better surface appearance
- Easier feed into the nozzle
- Helps reduce weight of final product by 15-20%
The company is looking for partners to join them in a financial agreement within the automotive industry.
