voxeljet technology can look back on a successful 2011 fiscal year, in which the company was able to continue the positive growth of previous years. During 2011, the company further expanded its international presence through new partnerships in the US, China, Africa, Hungary, Spain, Brazil and Turkey.
With several new partners, the company has also established a presence in Japan (www.fjtex.com.br), Finland (www.hanninen-engineering.fi), Mexico and Argentina (www.sycad.com.br) starting in January 2012. "We look forward to working with our new competent partners, whose commitment and know-how provide voxeljet with an opportunity to quickly establish the company in the respective markets", says Rudolf Franz, COO.
We have already undertaken initial joint activities with our Mexican partner. Seminars on the opportunities offered by Rapid Manufacturing were held for the foundry association in early February. "We were surprised about the strong demand for mould production using the 3D print method. The foundries in Mexico are very interested in this technology, and we are excited about the future developments in this area, says Zenki Komori, voxeljet partner for Mexico.
