GPAINNOVA America, the US subsidiary of the Spanish parent company, has entered into a strategic partnership with Proto3000, Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, to distribute the company’s dry electropolishing technology DLyte specifically to the metal Additive Manufacturing market. The chief objective of this distributor partnership is to position the technology as one of the main AM post-processing solutions in the dental, industrial, and healthcare industries throughout North America.
The companies also hope to further develop a supply chain for dental laboratories where they use AM for their metal parts by offering reportedly more complete post-processing with DLyte. This is expected to add value to the supply chain by reducing labour costs and increasing production with automated processes.
“We are very pleased to be working with Proto3000. The expertise that they have with all aspects of rapid prototyping and Additive Manufacturing will enable GPAINNOVA America to provide complete solutions to our customers, from creation to finished product”, stated Patrick Sage, General Manager of GPAINNOVA America.
Proto3000 will be GPAINNOVA America’s fifth distributor for DLyte in North America.
