ALSO offers innovative Post-Processing solution for 3D Printing
As part of the expansion of its 3D portfolio, ALSO has signed a contract for the Europe-wide distribution of DyeMansion finishing systems. The partnership will enable resellers and users to make full use of their industrial 3D printing systems from prototyping to real manufacturing.
«After having entered into a Europe-wide partnership with HP two years ago to distribute their Multi Jet Fusion portfolio, DyeMansion's industrial finishing solutions now enable us to offer the complete value chain from production to the finished product,» said Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN). «The agreement is a further step in the expansion of our offerings and competences in this important and growing market».
ALSO's Additive Manufacturing offering is supported through its own European Center of Competence for 3D printing. In this Competence Center the technology provider has bundled its expertise and offers resellers and users of industrial 3D printing technologies end-to-end solutions and consulting along the entire value chain from a single source. In addition to 3D printers, this includes software solutions from partners such as Materialise and now also the post-processing solutions offered by DyeMansion.
The ability to provide a flexible solution for small batches and high volumes makes DyeMansion a trusted partner for future factories. With their brand new Powerfuse S the post-processing specialists from Munich will launch a clean technology which achieves injection molding like surfaces and is ready for Industry 4.0 at this year's Formnext in November (booth 11.1, D61.)
«The partnership with ALSO offers us new opportunities executing our process chain-based marketing strategy in EMEA and sustaining our growth path», says Kai Witter, Chief Customer Officer at DyeMansion. «We are very excited about this new cooperation and look forward to challenging the status-quo, in our case injection molding. Together with ALSO, we will enable totally new applications with industrial 3D printing.»
Besides marketing and distribution of the DyeMansion finishing systems, ALSO offers attractive financial services solutions like rental contracts for end customers, which can feature the reseller's own branding. Resellers can reach out to ALSO drawing contracts in flexible ways and manage them.
The next step will be identifying and certifying resellers across Europe that would like to boost their offers to the manufacturing scale and have an appropriate competence in industrial 3D-printing.
