Italian 3D printer manufacturer, Roboze, has today announced a distribution agreement with UK-based 3D printing solutions company, GoPrint3D to bring Roboze 3D printing hardware to the UK & Ireland. Roboze technology will go on display for the first time with GoPrint3D at TCT Show next week.
As part of the agreement, GoPrint3D will be focusing on selling the company’s two leading products, Roboze One, a professional desktop 3D printer for functional rapid prototyping applications, and the Roboze One+400, an industrial 3D printer designed for manufacturing with 13 different types of advanced thermoplastics materials including PEEK, PEI and Carbon PA. The Roboze One+400 also benefits from a unique belt-less system which does away with the traditional belt found in most FDM printers in favour of a mechatronic movement system, more commonly found in large CNC machines.
GoPrint3D was started in Ripon, North Yorkshire in 2012 as the 3D printing division of Express Group Ltd, selling 3D printing solutions to industries such as education, engineering and manufacturing.
“We are excited to partner with Roboze,” James Blackburn, Director of Sales & Marketing at GoPrint3D commented. “We will be focusing on providing solutions for manufacturers with applications in aerospace and automotive industries.”
“The UK is in the top three most important regions in EMEA which seem to have accelerated in the past few years with regards to the adoption of 3D printing technologies, led by large corporations looking for powerful yet affordable solutions,” Gil Lavi, Roboze’s VP Global Sales & Business Development, explained. “From Automotive, CG & CE, Aerospace to Medical, we see continuous growth in the demand for our products with a focus on PEEK, PEI & CARBON-PA printing capability. These three materials seems to draw the most attention since they are used as a solution to print durable parts for functional testing in extreme environments and also as end use parts for specific applications.”

The partnership highlights the company's continued mission to build strong and professional distribution channels in the EMEA region. At TCT Show, GoPrint3D will extend Roboze's presence to the UK in Hall 3A, stand G14.
“We found GoPrint3D to be the optimal partner to work with in UK & Ireland due to their vast experience in selling 3D printing solutions, their professional and hardworking team and the fact we share the same vision of how we see this industry evolving in the coming years”, concluded Lavi “we look forward to working with GoPrint3D to lead the revolution of plastic additive manufacturing in UK & Ireland.”
TCT Show will take place on 28-29th September 2016 at NEC, Birmingham, UK. Register for FREE to attend.
