A new firm is connecting additive manufacturing firms and buyers that looking to buy professional 3D printers. This firm is none other than 3D Evaluate.
Among the implications that the COVID-19 has caused is the cancelling of public events as well as top trade exhibitions across the world. These events and shows are utilized as the perfect place for sellers and buyers, OEM’s, for business.
This has created a gap since there are no events that buyers can attend and for the sellers to connect with new leads.
In the present situation, the best way to locate 3D printers vendors is to go online. While managing an examining procedure of potential solutions, any buyer would require information beyond the specs of appropriate printers and technical information.
All buyers of 3D printers are aware that examining printed samples specifically their own model pieces is crucial. It helps to find out which vendor or technology to go with.
3D Evaluate was founded by Gil Lavi an AM industry-expert, CEO and funder of 3D Alliances. The firm provides an online space that supports buyers to get and analyse industrial AM systems of top OEM’s. This comparison relies on evaluating 3D printed specimen pieces of every vendor. Specimen kits are ferried to the buyers within some days, and by printing the buyer’s samples with competitive technologies. As a result, they are able to do their own inner testing prior to deciding which picking which printer to buy.
“The need for such platform was born few weeks after the COVID-19 crisis emerged,” says Gil.
“Once we saw public events being cancelled one after the other, we identified the gap that was created. We made contact with more than a few buyers and OEM’s to understand the challenges they are facing. The buyers could not move forward without testing the technologies, and the OEM’s lost their number one lead generation source. In three months, we managed to set the concept of the platform and build it as an online platform. 3D Evaluate aims to attract buyers of industrial 3D printers to offer support from an independent entity in their evaluation process.”
