Special vehicle manufacturer REFORM relies on additive manufacturing and the 3D solution provider Prirevo

REFORM, the vehicle specialist, develops and manufactures special vehicles for year-round use in mountain agriculture and municipal areas. For flexible and innovative product development, the company relies on additive manufacturing and the Upper Austrian 3D specialist Prirevo.

The development of modern, versatile and economical special vehicles that can withstand continuous use under challenging conditions requires a high level of specialist knowledge and experience. Growing product portfolios and variations requires greater flexibility in shorter periods. For an innovative company like REFORM, additive manufacturing processes for product development were a logical step.

The 3D solution provider Prirevo quickly emerged as a suitable partner: a manufacturer-independent specialist able to provide the best hardware for the specific requirements and support the implementation with extraordinary expertise. 

Outstanding prototypes with simultaneous time and cost reduction
The implementation of 3D printing enabled the rapid and flexible creation of many vehicle parts in the development phase, leading to cost reductions.

From the digital model to the printed ABS interior

The company now manufactures complete interiors, trim parts, roofs, fenders and bonnets. It optimises fittings ergonomically, quickly and inexpensively. Larger pieces are glued, filled and painted.

Growing 3D printing applications thanks to a good partnership
The years of successful cooperation are reflected in the increasing use of additive manufacturing processes at REFORM. Currently, REFORM owns two 3DGENCE F340 printers and one 3DGENCE ONE 3D printer. The company also uses Prirevo’s 3D printing services at peak times and benefits from its regional proximity.

REFORM thus benefits from Prirevo’s strict focus on quality, user benefits and on-site service, attributes that many other satisfied customers have been relying on for years. Prirevo has already manufactured more than 8,000 components in 2021 alone for these satisfied customers.
