Bari – August 25th, 2020 

The Italian-American Company ROBOZE, specialized in the design and production of the most precise 3D printers in the world, is glad to announce that the physicist Federico Faggin, father of the microprocessor and co-inventor of the touchpad and the touchscreen, joins the Advisory Board as technological consultant of the company with the aim of accelerating the development of additive manufacturing solutions for the benefit of manufacturing companies in the world.

Born in Vicenza and naturalized US citizen, Federico Faggini is considered one of the most prolific world famous inventors and scientists ever.

Father of the microprocessor, co-inventor of the touchpad and the touchscreen, awarded the highest honors from both sides of the ocean, Federico Faggin has contributed to the change in the history of modern computer science.

In fact, his work has received numerous international awards. In 2010 he received the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, the highest honor in the USA in the field of technological innovation, from President Barack Obama, for the invention of the microprocessor. In Italy, in 2019 the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella appointed him Knight Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.

” says Eng. Federico Faggin.

ROBOZE designs and produces the most precise 3D printers for the production of functional parts with super plastics, capable to replace metals. Used in sectors with the highest added value, such as aerospace, defense, Oil&Gas, motorsport, electrical mobility, manufacturing, ROBOZE 3D printing solutions are adopted by some of the major global industry players, like Leonardo, Airbus, GE, Dallara and many others, for the production of finished components to be used in final applications and extreme conditions.

Currently, the Company has three offices around the world, the EMEA HQ in Bari with the branch in Munich and the USA HQ in Houston, Texas, with a team of over 70 employees and one of the fastest level of expansion in the world.

ROBOZE’s goal is to support manufacturing companies in the world to produce locally, helping them in solving problems caused by the delocalized supply chain, increased today by the Covid19 pandemic, through industrial additive manufacturing solutions with patented technology.

Customers all over the world have the chance to implement their manufacturing processes with a ROBOZE solution within their factories or to rely on the 3D PARTS Network, a global network of innovative companies, highly specialized in engineering, production and post-processing of functional parts and end-use components.

The dematerialization of the warehouse, together with the local, customized and just-in-time production have become topics that can no longer be postponed, also following the shortages and the total obsolescence of the supply chain model linked to European and American productions, delocalized in Asia. The Company has institutional investors of international standing and is growing rapidly both in Europe and America with a 2020 turnover forecast, that has doubled compared to the last year.

“I am extremely proud and happy that Eng. Faggin has decided to accompany me in the growth of ROBOZE, becoming an investor and advisor of the company. Today is a very important date for ROBOZE. For me, Federico Faggin is one of the greatest models of ambition, an incredible inventor who changed the computer industry forever and a person of great humanity. I am very happy and I am sure that all our collaborators are deeply proud today. This gives us further incentive to take ROBOZE to the next level” Alessio Lorusso, Founder & CEO of ROBOZE.
