Gryp, a French specialist in the reproduction of automotive parts by 3D printing, is structuring the development of its constantly growing activity by joining forces with the Bordeaux-based startup Handddle to industrialize its manufacturing processes. The new Handddle SMART FARM 3D printer networking solution will enable Gryp to produce more, faster, in better conditions and at lower costs.
Handddle’s promise is to create and structure production lines using 3D printing. Based on the concept of micro-factories that are flexible and modular, the startup offers a system that can be integrated anywhere, based on most 3D machines available on the market. A control interface, accessible from the web, allows users to control the micro-factory (managing user queues, resources and production). In this way, the 3D “hub” is created and makes it possible to meet the needs of the customers.
This collaboration will enable Gryp to attract big names in the automotive sector and respond to numerous incoming requests. The company will be able to manage production runs with software dedicated to 3D printing, while work in a secure and standardized environment thanks to the SMART FARM. The company plans on reach targets even beyond the automobile segment, through the contribution of traceability and a robust process.
The Handddle APP centralizes the 3D printing ecosystem into a collaborative interface. This allows users to control of their SmartFarm Hub from anywhere. The cloud-based platform is designed to be autonomous during printing and let users remain focused on daily tasks.
Handddle will leverage this partnership to demonstrate the added value provided by the Handddle SMART FARM system, by measuring and testing the performance of the product in a real case scenario, while also obtaining concrete user feedback. The new Gryp setup will also provide a showroom for the company’s business development.
Handddle’s SMART FARM also opens new doors for Gryp-3D. It gives the possibility of duplicating, directly at the customer, the means of manufacture and thus produce as close as possible to the place of need. At the end of the pilot, Handddle will be able to structure its product development to tend towards a pre-marketable solution by the end of 2021.
