He sets chairs, tables and chandeliers in motion. Robotics, design and architecture are closely interwoven in his prototypes, studies and products. Stephan Henrich uses additive manufacturing as a pioneering design tool for furniture, objects and installations.
The Hybrid Materials Laboratory at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) is developing new composite materials. In addition to a wide range of production and analytical equipment, the Ticino researchers also make use of a Sintratec Kit.
In order to minimize the development time for new products, Geberit International AG manufactures many prototypes using 3D printing. Since 2016, the Swiss company uses a Sintratec S1 for design optimization and material testing in its prototyping laboratory.
FabRx is the world’s first company using selective laser sintering to prepare medicines. Thanks to the pioneering work of the British spin-out from University College London (UCL, 7th place in the world QS World University Ranking), medicines will be 3D printed in the future.
Laser sintering technology enables medical technology designers to print plastic objects for feasibility studies within a very short time. The functional prototypes largely have the same properties as injection-moulded parts. EEM AG goes one step further: It manages a balancing act between the production of prototypes and small series.
The HTL Dornbirn places importance on modern additive manufacturing methods not only in terms of understanding but also of applying. In order that the students are ready for their career start and technologically up to date, the Austrian vocational school uses Sintratec technology.
Radiate Engineering & Design GmbH, a start-up, is a composites development service provider which helps companies from the medical technology, sports and leisure, and aviation industries to optimize their value creation and supply chains. The service focuses on the development and implementation of market-ready disruptive solutions in the field of fiber composites.
In the past, producing ingenious grippers involved a great deal of effort. But now, the laser sintering process perfected by Sintratec has suddenly opened the door to completely new solutions and previously undreamed-of possibilities. SLS technology allows the creation of complex objects with an almost unlimited variety of shapes – objects that can also withstand […]
At Geberit we do not only use a wide range of 3D printers but have been doing so for many years. Our main application is the production of functional prototypes. Since most of our products come in contact with water, it is important that they are watertight but also can sustain strong water pressure.
As industrial designers, we at VIEWSDESIGN need high-quality models to test our visions for their feasibility. The manufacturing of these models by conventional, mechanical methods is expensive and above all, time-consuming. Nowadays, for us to take this extra time is no longer an option due to ever faster innovation cycles.
