Snowbird Technologies’ relationship with FANUC America was established with the development of the Snowbird Additive Mobile Manufacturing (SAMM Tech) platform. SAMM Tech is a patented, large-part Additive Manufacturing machine with CNC that is built inside Connex shipping containers. This product offering is designed to produce metal and composite parts on demand for remote operations in the military and defense, oil & gas, mining, and other industrial markets.
When developing SAMM Tech and the capabilities demanded by the operator, FANUC America’s CNC products reportedly exceeded expectations and delivered the results required for this application, which led to the FANUC CNC system becoming a standard component of SAMM Tech units.
“Our authorisation as a FANUC America CNC System Integrator is pivotal as we make entrance into the hybrid manufacturing market,” stated Caroline Brown, Marketing Director, Snowbird. “Being connected with a renowned brand such as FANUC will build trust with our target markets and help us to effectively launch and distribute the impressive SAMM Tech platform to users around the world.”
