Rize has received the Frost & Sullivan award for Best Practices in Technology Innovation for Zero-Emission Polymer Material Additive Manufacturing, North America. This award recognizes Rize for overcoming key challenges in the polymer additive manufacturing industry.
These challenges include complex, costly and potentially unsafe processes, insufficient material properties, lack of traceability and authenticity in parts and lack of functional part strength (in 3D printing technologies such as fused deposition modeling). Frost & Sullivan determined that Rize’s patented Augmented Deposition technology is distinguished in the industry because of its safe and cost-effective process that enables users to print a single part with varying material properties at the voxel level, according to Rize.
In a new report, Frost & Sullivan outlines several key ways that Rize eliminates the challenges often faced with polymer additive manufacturing:
Rize’s operation and minimal post-processing after printing enables a fast time to part to cut production lead times, according to the company. Additionally, Augmented Deposition is a safe enterprise additive manufacturing platform for printing zero-emission polymer materials, as well as a variety of other materials, the company notes. Rize has also been able to build strong functional parts. Lastly, voxel-level control provided by Rize’s Augmented Deposition process is a capability that enables users to produce digitally augmented parts for authenticity and traceability, the company adds.
“The Frost & Sullivan award is a testament to our unrelenting focus on ‘Safety First’ in 3D printing and additive manufacturing,” says Andy Kalambi, president and CEO of Rize. “Our focus on non-toxic, easily recyclable material, which creates zero hazardous waste and zero emissions while creating strong industrial parts, is showing results. This is especially important in schools, life sciences companies, offices and on the production floor where users can be put in harm’s way through unsafe practices.”
“With a business strategy anchored to demonstrating its additive manufacturing material expertise globally and a dedicated team focused on cutting-edge research, Rize has positioned itself as a leading player in the emission-free polymer additive manufacturing industry,” says Ranjana Lakshmi Venkatesh Kumar, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “This breakthrough will enable the company to expand its opportunity across various industries, including automotive, aerospace, life sciences, consumer goods, building and construction and retail.”
Rize is demonstrating its breakthrough Augmented Deposition technology at SOLIDWORKS World 2019, February 10-13, 2019, in Booth 227.
