3 new focal points in USA, Canada and Colombia for the creation of direct channels toward a growing manufacturing
Roboze continues its expansion with the aim to become a leader in the additive 3D printing for the production of functional parts with high performing materials. Roboze team announces today the names of its points of contacts for the customers in USA, Canada and Colombia.
The Italian manufacturer has just closed its first funding round of 3 million euro, for the development of its R&D department and the expansion in EMEA and USA markets, aiming at a 500% growth in 2019.
As a confirmation of this amazing stimulus and growth process, Roboze keeps focusing on the distribution and assistance through business partnership with VAR (value added reseller), selected on the base of expertise and company requirements, able to offer American customers solutions and 3D manufacturing.
Here the partners involved in the project:
Based in Oklahoma City, USA, ImageNet Consulting has been in the business of IT solutions and printing since 1956. It has 18 offices in the U.S. and 440 employees. In 2014, ImageNet stepped into the 3D printing space, offering a wide range of additive manufacturing technologies. Its goal is meeting and satisfying its customers’ needs in terms of products, expertise, and consultancy.
Along with the growth of American manufacturing, the number of innovative industrial technologies end users has increased. Within the 3D printing world, ImageNet Consulting chose Roboze thanks to the high quality of its printed parts and the possibility to use flame retardant materials, proving functional performance able to meet the needs of specific sectors.
“The reason we suggest Roboze over many other solutions”, says TJ Russell, 3D Printing director at ImageNet Consulting, “is for flame retardant materials, the quality of the product, strength, competitive price point, and its vision for future AM technology (longevity to be around). ROI is always the most important thing for our customers and when you compare Roboze to other products in its class, they can’t compete. With the announcement of all the other Roboze products, there is a sense of security there for a customer that Roboze is here to stay”.
Located in Bolton, Ontario – Canada, TM3 is a consulting company, specialized in the production of parts with additive technology and reverse engineering.

TM3 is able to meet the manufacturing necessities for on demand small production batches and large scale production cycles.
The Canadian company chose Roboze as “it was the best opportunity for us to provide a true industrial platform for our customers”, declares Vince Tersigni, TM3 Co-Founder.
The world leading accuracy and the strong material characteristics, especially with metal replacements options, satisfied the requirements of the research team that wanted to be part of a young forward thinking, growing company and develop a brand across all of Canada.
“We have several applications that require jigs and fixtures for CNC machining applications and we feel that having the ability to print with Nylon and Carbon PA will be able to support us in that area. We also have a large focus on the Oil & Gas Market and feel that printing in PEEK will be a very large benefit for our customers. We have opportunities to help customers looking for short run injection mold tooling and we feel that with the properties in PEEK we should be able to satisfy these needs.”
i3D was founded in 2007 with the aim to offer the best in class 3D technologies to both the Educational and Professional markets.
