iGo3D and Grupo Sicnova 3D Join Forces to Take On the Professional Market

Leading 3D printing solutions providers iGo3D and Grupo Sicnova 3D, have announced the creation of AMS (Additive Manufacturing Solutions) a new common brand that will see the two companies enter the professional 3D printing market.

The initial goal of AMS will be to provide manufacturing companies with 3D Print Factory solutions based on 3D printers. For this goal, the companies created AMS-Print Factory division.

“We’ve been talking about a 3D revolution, but I think we were only in the warm-up.”

3D Print Factories can be ideal for production-on-demand of short runs; since additive manufacturing offers total design freedom and requires no tools, major manufacturers are expected to initially use these solutions in new lines of products. This way they can reduce their time-to-market and test the demand with a minor investment when compared to traditional manufacturing.

As Diogo Quental, CEO of iGo3D, sees it, it is still unclear the full extent to which traditional manufacturing can be replaced by additive manufacturing technologies. However, he continues “There are two things we do know: 1st – it has for sure the potential to substitute a very substantial part of the manufacturing process; and 2nd – this substitution is extremely easy to implement and control”. He believes major manufacturers should begin exploring 3D printing solutions in their core business, not just for prototyping. “We’ve been talking about a 3D revolution, but I think we were only in the warm-up. The real change is to start now” he said.

Angel Llavero, CEO of Grupo Sicnova 3D, believes the real challenge of 3D printing is the transition from rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing. “For that we need greater productivity, meaning: reliability, printing speed, payback and ease of use. The capacity to manufacture many different parts in one day with a price that is competitive with traditional manufacturing for productions of several hundreds of units is the great solution that AMS – Print Factory wants to offer to the European market” he explained.

AMS-Print Factory will showcase solutions from leading manufacturers like Ultimaker, Formlabs and Makerbot at the upcoming Hannover Messe which will run from April 24 to April 28.
