In January 2015, voxeljet commenced operations and began printing parts for customers at its North American Services facility located in Canton, Michigan (near Detroit). The approximately 50,000 square foot facility will initially operate four large-format printers to support both the sand casting and investment casting markets. The Company expects to install additional sand and plastic printers, including the VX4000 during the course of the year. Voxeljet anticipates its Canton, Michigan facility having similar printing capacity to its Friedberg, Germany service center by the end of 2016.
We hosted our first customer seminar on January 20th which included presentations from David Tait, Managing Director of Voxeljet of America Inc., Ingo Ederer CEO of voxeljet AG, and Tom Mueller, Director of Casting Applications, North America.
“Our inaugural customer seminar was very successful”, said David Tait, Managing Director of Voxeljet of America Inc. “We were able to share various historical applications with customers of the aerospace, automotive and heavy equipment sectors. Many of these 3D printing technology users were excited about the facility’s capabilities as well as the very robust machine engineering quality. We look forward to our growing presence in the market.”
