Bondtech and Slice Engineering join forces to create and launch an extended range of print-head solutions for the desktop and industrial 3d printing space.
Bondtech (Sweden) and Slice Engineering (USA) have signed an agreement for strategic co-operation on product development.
The agreement was signed into effect by Martin Bondeus and Daniel Barousse, the owner of Bondtech, and CEO & Co-founder of Slice Engineering (Slice), respectively.
This agreement be will translate into:
- Closer integration of technologies with cost and performance benefits;
- Sharing of R&D resources - legacy, present, and future - to enjoy a shorter time to market for new products and systems;
- Creation of a broader range of solutions and alternative versions to adapt to each other’s products;
- Long term investment in building comprehensive, consistent, and high-performance offers focused on delivering whole print head systems solutions that cater to the full breadth of market segments, including consumer, professional and industrial spaces.
The aim of this agreement is sharing the pool of knowledge - in materials technology, filament extrusion, and 3D printing - to develop complementary, customized and coordinated offers between Bondtech’s feeders and Slice’s hotends, that both companies can use to go to market with full print head solutions.
“We have long admired the Bondtech team. This new alliance allows Slice to focus on our strengths in thermodynamics, and leverage Bondtech’s expertise in extrusion technologies, to provide integrated 3D printing solutions that compete on a global scale.”
- Dan Barousse
Under this agreement, Slice expands its product portfolio and creates custom hotends to couple with Bondtech's previous and new Dual Drive extruders. Bondtech simultaneously expands its portfolio and creates a new generation of Dual Drive extruders to couple with Slice Engineering's current and future hotends.
The first tangible results of this product integration will be on display at #MRRF2020 (April 3-5th, Goshen, Indiana), where both companies will exhibit examples of solutions that represent the Future of their common offer.
“From the start of our relationship Slice has been an invaluable partner. Their knowledge and complementary product range was always aligned with our goals of delivering reliability and performance. This agreement takes us further to pursue global solutions with very unique selling propositions.”
- Martin Bondeus
Together we'll unveil the most flexible, high-performance array of compact, light print head solutions ever seen in the desktop 3d printing space.
