Summary

Summary: 
The Romanian company manufactures industry grade metal, plastic and ceramic 3D printing systems, offers additive manufacturing software solutions and 3D printing services for design, engineering or prototyping usages. They are offering their services, printers and printing solutions to European companies looking to produce functional prototypes or small and medium batch production of technical ceramics throughout manufacturing agreement.

Description

Description: 

The Romanian company from Zarnesti city, was founded in 2017. Additive manufacturing for the 3D printing products can be done through the following procesess:
1. Fused Deposition Modeling - extrusion modeling
Fast prototyping technology is the most widely used manufacturing technology for its simplicity and affordability. It is used in modelling, prototyping, but also in production applications. In the process production it is used melting extrusion modelling, thermoplastic extrusion and fused filament fabrication. With a dedicated software application, the desired 3D model is initially sliced into cross sections called layers. Printing technology consists in passing a plastic filament through an extruder that heats it up to the melting point, then applying it uniformly (extrusion) layer overlay with great accuracy to physically print the 3D model according to the CAD file.
2. The selective laser sintering technology involves the use of a high-power laser beam (eg a CO2 laser) for melting (sintering) some powders in successive layers, thus achieving the desired 3D model.
The desired 3D model is initially converted into cross-sections (slices) of the object and then sent to the printer.
During printing, the 3D model is permanently embedded in the construction powder, which allows the printing of extremely complex geometries without support material.
3. Stereolithography is a rapid prototyping technology widely used in the industrial environment for mould making, models and even functional components. Stereolithography involves the use of a laser beam with ultraviolet light to solidify a liquid photopolymer resin in the printer's construction drum.
Under the action of ultraviolet laser light, this curable resin (sensitive to ultraviolet light) solidifies in successive layers, thus obtaining a solid 3D model. For complex geometry printing, stereolithography requires the creation of support structures to support geometry.
These structures are automatically generated during 3D computer preparation by the 3D printer software application.
4. Selective laser melting uses metal powders as building materials that are melted and welded together with a powerful laser. After completion, the 3D piece is removed from the building room and subjected to a heat treatment and finish according to the application. Company produces optical 3D scanners based on structure blue/white light technology. The 3D scanners are capable of scanning objects of different shapes and sizes simply by changing the scanner’s field of view. Due to use of structure light technology, the 3D scanners are able to provide highly detailed scans of any type of object, with accuracy up to 0,018 mm and resolution up to 0,03 mm.
Customers come from various fields and each model has its own and different market – from high schools, universities, and small construction or design companies to bigger production companies with R&D departments.
The company is looking for long-term partnerships with new partners from above mentioned sectors and other relevant sectors. The new partner can become official representative of the brand in selected territory with non-exclusive selling rights. The possible partnership type: manufacturing agreement to manufacture products on international markets.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The company started its activity in 2017. Since then, every day receives and realises new orders associated with modelling and 3D printing. In their workshop they have got top class 3D printers due to this fact the prints they provide their customers with are characterised by high quality. The staff of the company specialises not only in printing but also in 3D CAD modelling. Employees are able to transform any idea (even the one sketched on a piece of paper) in a three-dimensional model. The company produces 3D scanners with unique price-quality ratio on the market. Their advantages consists on: - wide range of durable materials, some materials doesn't require post processing. - some parts are resistant to high temperature - the possibility of building extremely complex geometries without support material - flexibility of printed models that can be used as final models or test models, - good 3D modeling, very good accuracy of the printed parts, finishing printed surfaces and printing speed - materials used: photo-sensitive liquid resins, ceramic materials (new developed)

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The Romanian company is interested in cooperating with international business partners for whom to provide 3D printing services. Potential partners are companies requiring 3D printing for prototypes, small series manufacturing or the creation of unique products with complex designs. The Romanian company is also interested in establishing working relationships with European business partners who uses industrial-grade plastics, metals, technical ceramics parts and components based on manufacturing agreement. As there is a very wide range of usage for 3D printing products, the potential European business partners can be from any industry with application needs from designing, prototyping to batch manufacturing. The Romanian company can manufacture the desired products in Romania and have it send to the business partner on demand.
