Bari, Italy – After 10 years in 2D world, from Indigo (HP) to Scitex, Gil Lavi added another dimension to his professional life and, in 2006, he joined the Objet company, starting as Regional Channel Manager to become the EMEA Strategic Accounts Director of Stratasys.
“I had the honor of joining the company when it was still a small startup on the way to becoming a true 3D world leader, a public traded company with a market cap of several billions,” Gil Lavi said. “After 10 amazing years, I left the company seeking my next adventure in this fascinating industry. As a long-term player, I was looking for technologies that will have the right offering customers were looking for – professional yet affordable. Out of this understanding, and taking into consideration the changes this industry was going through, I examined dozens of companies, most of which were young start-ups.”
Over the past several years, many new desktop 3D vendors joined the market, offering affordable and easy-to-use 3D printers. “Today, the market has become pretty crowded leading some vendors to mainly focus on pricing, others on a vast variety of materials. All in all there are pretty good desktop printers out there,” Lavi said.
Roboze captured Gil Lavi’s attention for several reasons. First and foremost – Gil explained – the team I met had the spark in their eyes I was looking for, saying: “we want to be part of this revolution and we truly believe in what we do”. Second, the company’s one-of-a-kind 3D printing technology offers a true benefit – the ability to produce accurate and high quality parts from a variety of materials, including high thermoplastic materials – all at reasonable costs. Third, after successfully installing hundreds of 3D printers in Europe, the company was looking for ways to expand their global business activity.”
Roboze, stepped into the market with Roboze One, a desktop printer with a unique and patented technology that enables users to produce accurate and high quality parts. “My conclusion – Gil Lavi added – was that this printer is positioned above most of the standard 3D printers on the market today, offering a professional yet affordable tool.
Furthermore, the Roboze R&D team managed to develop a breakthrough printing capability of high-end thermoplastic polymers, which were available until today only with professional high-cost production printers.” The RobozeOne+400, which is soon to be released, will be one of the most advanced and powerful desktop printers in the market. At the same time it is extremely affordable compared to the other high-end solutions.
