Conrad Electronic, one of Europe’s biggest and most trusted electronics providers, has partnered with the experts at trinckle 3D GmbH, to introduce a 3D printing service and lay the foundation for further innovative services.
Making industrial 3D printing accessible
The Berlin-based company develops software for the age of additive manufacturing. trinckle`s core offering, paramate, automates design processes and provides a platform for advanced product configuration. Paramate enables customer-specific adaptations of any product – whether it be prostheses tailored to the patient, mechanically optimized industrial components like end-of-arm grippers, low-volume jigs and fixtures or personalized lifestyle products.
3D printing is still new for many customers, and trinckle’s platform provides the necessary support they need by integrating ordering and software tools, ensuring intuitive and easily accessible 3D printing for everyone. “Our print service platform is designed to facilitate a great customer experience. It is so simple to use. The model handling tools repair models, check printability and scalability, essentially guaranteeing that anyone can get the perfect print every time”, trinckle CEO, Florian Reichle.
Top quality and high-end results
This expertise is exactly what Conrad needed to ensure its next steps into the additive manufacturing space would add real value for customers: “We are extremely pleased to have found such a strong partner in trinckle 3D GmbH. Not only is trinckle well-established and innovative, but they also believe firmly in creating amazing customer experiences. With their help, we will be able to offer our clients top quality and truly high-end results. 3D printing offers almost unlimited new possibilities, and thanks to this partnership with trinckle we will be able to leverage them for our customers” Bastian Krä, Project Manager and Team Member at the Conrad Technologie Center. The basic idea of the new service is simply explained: you upload your 3D model to the new Conrad 3D printing service platform, your object is then printed on professional, industrial quality machines, and finally your object is sent to you without delay.
For business and hobbies
3D printing represents a natural extension of the Conrad Maker and Tekkie culture. trinckle’s print capabilities enable customers to create anything and everything from models to replacement components, enabling them to take full advantage of the age of digital DIY.
