Following expansions into the China and India markets, German additive manufacturing systems manufacturer, voxeljet is continuing its global growth by bringing its large-format 3D printers to Mexico in collaboration with automation company, Art Abastecedora Industrial S. de R.L. de C.V. (ART).
In a bid to tap into Mexico’s growing automotive and machine building industries, voxeljet chose to partner with ART which provides high-tech solutions for automation companies, and counts the “Big Three” in the automotive industry, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler, among its suppliers.
“With its extensive experience in the automotive sector and its collaboration with global leaders, ART is the ideal business partner for the Latin American market. As an automation expert, the company contributes comprehensive competence for marketing our products in Mexico in the future,” Christian Träger, Sales Director at voxeljet, explained. “Our industrial 3D printing systems are front and centre in our collaboration with ART. By using 3D printers from voxeljet, large foundries can optimise their production processes for moulds and models.”
Foundries that produce for the automotive industry use 3D printed moulds and models prototyping and rapid manufacturing in small series production. Foundries can now acquire cast parts directly through ART, which saves time and money and will give Mexican manufacturers a competitive edge in the global market.
ART was founded in Mexico City in 1988, and initially made a name for itself by providing die-cutting and installation services for the automotive industry. Now the company offers an extensive product portfolio of machines, accessories and automation systems for the automotive sector. The company covers Mexico, through the main four Industrial regions with Headquarters at México City. Effective immediately, the company will also be in charge of marketing voxeljet's 3D printing systems and associated services.
“We are pleased to develop the market for industrial 3D printing in Mexico together with voxeljet, while at the same time addressing the considerable market demand”, Dipl.-Ing. Rafael Martínez Velásquez, President of ART commented.
