Au.Te.Bo. Spa, a company which has been operating in the mechanical and mechatronic sectors since 1963 and constructs OEM automatic machines, needed to reduce time and production costs of its mechanical components, while breaking loose from external suppliers and reducing warehouse costs.
After the financial crisis of 2008 and the arrival of China on the markets, it was necessary to find a solution to make production more flexible and to amaze customers by producing several prototypes of various sizes and complex geometries, and doing it faster than the competition. The market, however, lacked the specialized solutions of additive manufacturing for the production of mechanical components.
The solutions available at that time, represented by 3D printing service or producers of generalist machines failed to address the problems of entrepreneurs in the mechanical sector, specifically to produce resistant components with suitable technical properties, in a short time.
3D4MEC printers on the contrary, were created with the aim of speeding up the production flow and time to market of the products of mechanical companies.
In particular, each 3D4MEC printer is:
Built, in all its details, to achieve the best components for the mechanical sector;
Specialized to perform at its maximum with a product range of specific material;
Customized to meet the needs of each single customer.
Exploiting the experience gained in forty years within the mechanical and mechatronic sectors, the team, led by Ivano Corsini, has produced 2 different systems for 3D printing of metals specialized for one material:
3D4BRASS – the first 3D printer in the world able to produce components directly in brass.
3D4STEEL – the first printer in the world specialized in the processing of steel.
