Roboze, the leading Italian 3D printing company, has announced its association with Polymertal, an innovative Israeli company that specializes in producing hybrid products based on metal plating of 3D printed parts. As part of the agreement, Polymertal will purchase Roboze’s flagship product – the Roboze One+400 industrial 3D printer – to enhance a unique plating process to be applied to Roboze’s metal replacement techno-polymers focusing on PEEK, PEI & CARBON-PA.
Established in 2013, Polymertal’s vision is to convert metal components to a new concept – Hybrid Products, which will enjoy the best out of two worlds – metal and plastic.
This concept is based on patented high-quality chemical processes that involve improving the 3D printed products surface and then metal plating with excellent adhesion and electrical conductivity.
The combination of Roboze’s advanced thermo-plastics 3D parts and metal plating by Polymertal, will provide a unique value proposition that will enlarge the spectrum of possible advanced applications, supporting weight and cost reduction, and shorter product lead-time.
