The key to staying at the forefront of any industry is sharing information and working together with companies and brands who can help you grow your business. A collaboration can also help you learn about new developments that will boost productivity, cut costs, or enhance customer service. Collaborating with top-leading companies in any industry can significantly help move both businesses forward.
Reasons to Collaborate
By forming collaborations with companies in a connected space, it is possible to discover the available products and technology, understand how they are advancing, and figure out the gaps within the supply chain. By partnering with different companies who make the printing materials, use 3D printing for their prototypes or end-use products, and work in technology, Nexa3D will ensure their printers are compatible with the computer software needed for sending designs to the printers.
Each collaboration offers a new point of view and an additional source of information for newly established trends and expectations. By recognizing the needs of their B2B customers, Nexa3D is better equipped to meet those needs.
Nexa3D is building a future of additive manufacturing that allows the use of a variety of materials in several types of printers. This creates the variety and versatility their customers need to rely on. When a 3D printer is limited to one or two printing materials, the printing process becomes more complicated and frustrating for users. They are unable to use their printer for all of their projects and will end up outsourcing some items and jobs to other companies. This negates the purpose of having purchased the printer.
Current and Past Strategic Partners
Nexa3D has partnered with outstanding printing material suppliers, such as Keystone, Evonik, and DSM. The in-depth experience empowered them to move forward in discovering the available materials, how to use them, and the products that are more popular with their customers. It also helps to show the limitations of certain products. For example, a certain material might work better than others but only work in limited machines. Discovering that limitation helps Nexa3D find ways to overcome those challenges.
How This Changed the Printers
These interactions encouraged an open-source approach to printers that will allow the use of any material. These machines are created to use whichever industrial-grade material would be the best fit for that specific job. Flexibility in the materials makes each printer more powerful and versatile, allowing clients to grow their business as they want without any restriction on their printing capabilities.
Partnering with material suppliers allowed access to their vast knowledge on how the materials work with a variety of printers and how their final products turn out. Having access to those who understand the chemistry behind the reactions that make 3D printing possible opens the door to adapting future printers to work with that chemistry for any printing material. This removes the limitations of choosing one machine that prints the material needed for one product or prototype. Also, it allows for an expansion of products and uses for the printers themselves.
Through collaborating with these other companies and parts of the supply chain, Nexa3D has been able to vastly improve printing and stay at the forefront of the technological advances being made. They have created truly functional 3D printers that can use the material best suited for the job rather than forcing clients to create the job around the material available.
Nexa3D is Leading the Way
Other companies are simply not designing or producing printers with the capabilities of Nexa3D. Again, while they may change course and begin to try some of the technologies this company has fostered, they are not the first to market it. They simply don’t have the level of experience Nexa3D has accumulated.
Nexa3D has created printers that have a larger print space and can use multiple materials. These machines print significantly faster than any other available 3D printer. With easy-to-use software for users, they are addressing the inefficiency from design to finished print. Improvements in the use of material have resulted in better quality finished products. Again, the software makes changes and adaptations faster and easier, making it possible to design, manufacture, and deliver products in a much shorter time frame.
Future collaborations with other businesses within the industry will continue to offer them an edge among printer manufacturers. The continuous growth of business and advancements in the chemistry used to make 3D printing possible opens the door to creating more innovative printers. This removes the limitations of needing one machine for each type of product. Also, this transforms the industry with 3D printers that are easy to use, efficient, and suitable for any business. Finally, it offers them a large target market that certainly keeps growing as the popularity of 3D printed objects enters new industries.
