Aniwaa Pte. Ltd., headquartered in Singapore, reports that it has launched its new Additive Manufacturing machine comparison platform.
The company, which was established in 2013 to help professional users research, evaluate and purchase AM equipment, states that it has built the most comprehensive database yet of Additive Manufacturing machines.
The release is also said to mark the company’s transition to a platform model, with Aniwaa capable of not only allowing its users to identify the right products but also connecting potential buyers with trusted resellers from its global network to finalise their purchases.
In addition, Aniwaa has developed efficient marketing and selling solutions, tailored to help AM brands connect with a qualified audience of professional buyers while they are researching their next purchase on the platform.
According to the company, information about industrial Additive Manufacturing machines is scattered across the internet, with few reliable and user-friendly tools available to guide professional buyers. Thus, researching and comparing products in the fast-changing AM landscape can be a daunting task.
Addressing this issue, Aniwaa explains that its completely redesigned comparison engine indexes over 2,100 products, encompassing the full spectrum of AM machines. The tool includes a range of unique filtering and comparison options designed to help users easily narrow down their selection. They can also benchmark up to four AM machines at a time, side by side, and receive a comprehensive overview of the products that interest them.
“3D printers are a fast-growing category; we’re seeing many professional applications reaching maturity and a strong untapped potential overall,” stated Pierre-Antoine Arrighi, Aniwaa’s co-founder. “New hardware is being released frequently, which is creating a very fragmented market space and making it difficult for potential buyers to make an informed choice. That’s why we’re constantly improving our tools to help our users find the best AM hardware for their needs and budget.”
Martin Lansard, Aniwaa’s CEO and co-founder, commented, “I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved. With the COVID-19 situation, physical trade shows are declining sharply while the product discovery and comparison phases are moving online.”
Lansard added, “This new release strengthens Aniwaa’s position as the go-to Additive Manufacturing platform, helping not only buyers but also suppliers– from manufacturers aiming to build their brands to resellers looking for qualified leads. We’re all excited by what’s ahead and look forward to supporting the growth of our industry and helping 3D printing companies thrive.”
