Deko 3D solves 3D problem with Massivit printer
Deko 3D by Sépia has installed a Massivit 1800 3D Printing Solution in a bid to secure new business and overcome the constraints of traditional production processes.
Based in Grenoble, Deko 3D, a specialist provider of large format 3D applications and a subsidiary of Sépia Signalétique, was founded as a full-service 3D service bureau.
Explaining the rationale behind the purchase of the Massivit printer, Eric Pessarossi, General Manager at Deko 3D, said: “After several years of declining projects, largely due to the manufacturing constraints of CNC machining, we decided to create a dedicated division with in-house 3D solutions that could solve this problem.
“Traditionally, we used CNC machining to produce polystyrene models. This worked perfectly for 2D applications, but proved highly problematic, in terms of time and material, when it came to outdoor 3D projects. We were unable to replicate our customers’ desired requirements, which unfortunately meant having to decline a number of lucrative projects.
“With 3D printing, this is no longer an issue. Now, regardless of the scale and complexity of the application, we are able to meet our customers’ demands. This is a real game-changer for us and, most importantly, means that we’re no longer having to turn business away.”
Pessarossi believes that the Massivit 1800, sold to the company by French dealer, Euromedia, will play an integral role in the expansion of the company’s application offering and allow it to enter new markets.
He continued: “We wanted to invest in a technology that would enable us to offer our customers unrivalled applications, as well as helping us to maintain our competitive edge, something that our Massivit 1800 enables us to do.”
“Our aim is to change the face of visual communications and establish ourselves as pioneers of next generation large format applications.”
Gaspare Bugli, Director of Sales for EMEA at Massivit 3D concluded: “As Deko 3D demonstrates, we continue to see a growing number of traditional sign and print companies integrating our solutions into their existing production floor.
“As a result, companies that once had to reject certain projects, can now harness our technology to undertake 3D print jobs, thus securing new business and increasing revenues.”
