Siemens has announced collaborations with Roboze and Xerox.
Siemens and Roboze formed what they called “a strategic partnership aimed at pooling their skills to create complete workflows for the industrialization of 3D printing and increase the production opportunities of companies involved in the energy, mobility and aerospace sectors.”
Roboze is involved with industrial 3D printing of super polymers and composite materials. The two companies say the partnership will boost productivity and competitiveness for manufacturers.
“We have embarked on a path that sees us leading the way with Roboze to increase the production capacities of manufacturing companies around the world,” Tim Bell, additive manufacturing business manager at Siemens, said in a statement.
“We have experienced the potential of Roboze's 3D printing firsthand, so much so that we have chosen to implement their ARGO 500 into our processes,” he added.
The main activities will focus on digitalization and automation projects, Siemens said.
The partnership "represents another step in our strategy to be closer to the industries we have served for years such as energy, mobility and aerospace." Said Francesco Pantaleone, vice-president of business development at Roboze.
Separately, Siemens disclosed a new collaboration effort with Xerox Elem Additive Solutions aimed at strengthening the metal additive manufacturing capabilities of both businesses.
Siemens has purchased an ElemX metal 3D Printer, adding it to its fleet of additive machines inside its Charlotte Advanced Technology Collaboration Hub (CATCH).
The CATCH facility focuses on the industrialization of additive manufacturing, working with machine builders, material suppliers and end-customers. The ElemX leverages Xerox’s liquid metal AM that uses cost-effective aluminum wire and incorporates the state-of-the-art Siemens SINUMERIK 840D sl control platform with its embedded digital twin technology to optimize the printing process.
