WOBURN, Mass. February 5, 2017 – Rize Inc., maker of the world’s most versatile industrial 3D printing technology providing the industry’s fastest turnaround on manufacturing parts, announced today that the Rize™ One 3D printer is now publicly available.
Having only emerged from stealth mode in late July, Rize has garnered wide acclaim for its patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) process, impressive customers, renown team of 3D printing pioneers and industry recognition. The announcement was made this morning in Rize booth #406 at SOLIDWORKS World in Los Angeles.
“We are seeing enormous worldwide demand for our Rize One 3D printer, particularly among global manufacturers and healthcare facilities, and we are excited to begin shipping,” said Frank Marangell, President and CEO of Rize. “Our passionate and deeply experienced team has accomplished an impressive amount in a very short timeframe and we will quickly expand our go-to-market initiatives, while continuing to develop innovative new products.”
In just seven months since emerging from stealth mode, Rize has achieved the following:
- -Public availability of the Rize One 3D printer.
- -Successful beta program with Reebok, Boston Engineering, a global consumer packaged goods manufacturer and a global automotive manufacturer.
- -Launch of a global Customer Referral Program.
- -Validation of the benefits of zero-post-processing technology in a report by 3D printing industry expert, Todd Grimm.
- -Pervasive awareness, with over 80 feature articles in industry and mainstream business press, Gartner and IDC analyst reports and an engaged and expanding online and social media community.
- -Patents Issued in the US, Japan, Korea and China.
- -External lab data verifies isotropic material properties, stronger in the Z-axis than polycarbonate and two times stronger than ABSplus for use in customized end-use parts, production tooling and functional prototypes.
