ERIKS and Ultimaker to drive 3D print development

Desktop 3D print expert Ultimaker has joined forces with technical components and services provider ERIKS on a new initiative aimed at scaling up 3D printing production capacity for OEM and MRO customers.

ERIKS has equipped its production facilities in Alkmaar, The Netherlands, with multiple Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundles, to co-engineer with customers and offer full support in identifying, designing and printing applications.

In addition, a special clean manufacturing facility will now offer EC1935/2004 manufacturing to customers of ERIKS in need for food-safe parts.

“We see enormous potential in 3D printing for industrial purposes,” ERIKS Netherlands managing director Sander Splinter says.

“By combining our industry, product and application knowledge with the accessible and reliable 3D printing solutions from Ultimaker, we can fully support our customers in co-engineering parts with more speed and design freedom when using injection moulding.”

Jos Burger, chief executive at Ultimaker, adds: “Efficiency is key to bring a competitive edge and 3D printing plays a major role in this, as ERIKS experienced first-hand with achieving their impressive cost- and time savings.”
