PostProcess Technologies, Buffalo, New York, USA, a provider of automated and intelligent post-printing solutions for industrial Additive Manufacturing, has announced further expansion of its channel partner coverage in North America, having secured agreements with AdvancedTek, Cimetrix, Fisher Unitech and Tech-Labs.
PostProcess stated that its channel partners were selected based on a series of requirements beyond simply their geographic location, including recognised leadership status in driving access to and adoption of AM technologies, a track record of representing both metal and polymer Additive Manufacturing systems and established frameworks to educate and support their customers in their adoption of AM solutions.
“We have a very high bar for channel partners because of the revolutionary nature of our technology and our role driving next generation 3D printing possibilities,” stated Jeff Mize, PostProcess CEO. “All four of our new partners, along with existing partners Prototyping Solutions / Technical Training Aids and TekPro, are proven leaders in AM, helping to drive advanced thinking and cutting-edge technology adoption and share an exceptional customer service commitment, the same as our own.”
AdvancedTek is a Platinum Partner reseller for Stratasys and Desktop Metal AM systems, and will represent PostProcess in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and North and South Dakota.
“Now that many of our customers have moved beyond basic prototyping into advanced prototyping, tooling and manufacturing applications, they are looking to AdvancedTek for help in managing process control, automation and quality assurance in part finishing,” commented Matt Havekost, Vice President of Additive Manufacturing Sales. “We are excited to partner with PostProcess to offer our customers solutions that will help them get the most out of their plastic and metal Additive Manufacturing systems for prototyping, tooling, and production.”
Cimetrix, a division of Javelin Technologies, provides solutions for both commercial and academic verticals. Cimetrix reportedly specialises in supporting applications with stringent requirements, including high-performance prototypes, tooling, and manufacturing aids, as well as end-use parts.
“With our focus on offering our customers a comprehensive solution including 3D printing technology, software, design, implementation and training services, PostProcess’ portfolio is a perfect fit,” stated James Janeteas, President & CEO of Cimetrix. “Our clients in automotive, aerospace, medical, defense and many more markets will benefit greatly from PostProcess’ automated, software-driven technology.”
Fisher Unitech, a leading technology provider of 3D design software tools and AM systems, will represent PostProcess in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and New England. “Fisher Unitech aims to fundamentally improve manufacturing in America by delivering the best product development software and additive manufacturing solutions available,” commented Matt Wise, CEO at Fisher Unitech. “The PostProcess platform aligns perfectly with our mission, as its combined software, chemistry, and hardware solutions will allow our customers to significantly improve their operational productivity and quality.”
Tech-Labs, or Technical Laboratory Systems Inc., will represent PostProcess in the South-Central US. Tech-Labs is a full-service provider of AM solutions, skills training equipment and software for advanced manufacturing, industrial maintenance and engineering segments. Tech-Labs is a Stratasys Platinum reseller and also represents Renishaw and Desktop Metal.
