ODESSA, FL, July 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ultimate 3D Printing Store is proud to announce a new strategic partnership with Type A Machines to educate companies across Florida and the East Coast on the future of additive manufacturing.
Type A Machines has made a name within the 3D industry due to its revolutionary Print Pod, which can harness up to 60 individual 3D printers controlled by a single intuitive software interface. This allows businesses to do low-to-medium production runs and save thousands compared to outsourcing.
It's an unrivaled technology that up until now has not had widespread exposure on the East Coast.
"There's no one on the planet that has a system which can connect this many printer and simultaneously control all of them with one screen," said Roy Kirchner, founder and CEO of Ultimate 3D Printing Store. "It is a rare hidden gem which most companies on the East Coast have yet to discover, and we are thrilled to bring this technology to them."
The Print Pod, which works seamlessly with Type A Machines' Series 1 Pro 3D printer, has already gained a foothold in higher education. Print Pods are in use at colleges and universities, including Stanford University, Clemson University and the University of California, Berkeley.
As an authorized reseller, Ultimate 3D Printing Store continues to cultivate relationships with institutions of higher learning and trade schools, but the new effort will be put toward identifying Print Pod customers.
"Florida is becoming a new Silicon Valley," Kirchner said. "There is an incredible number of businesses here that have yet to take advantage of 3D printing. This partnership allows us to educate them on the potential. Of nearly 60,000 people working in manufacturing in Tampa Bay, approximately 30,000 are in Pinellas County alone."
Ultimate 3D Printing Store's industry reputation is what attracted Type A Machines, said Shawn Hopwood, the company's Chief Marketing Officer.
"They have a great reach into the Maker community, education and the local manufacturing, including NASA and government contractors," Hopwood said. "They make a great partner for carrying our message of - a new way of manufacturing - into these communities."
Kirchner said joining forces was a "no-brainer" after his Chief Technology Officer, Joseph DiMattei, reviewed and tested the Serie 1 Pro and found it to be a state-of-the-art and a precision industrial-build quality.
"Every other 3D machine manufacturer has some claim to fame with some component they claim functions better than others," Kirchner said. "Type A Machines delivers all of those things in one box. The Series 1 Pro has proven itself to be the go-to machine for manufacturers and for educators teaching the next generation of users."
When paired with and plugged into a Print Pod, the combination of printer and technology is unbeatable.
"This technology can help restore and grow American jobs," Kirchner said. "When manufacturers realize they can use a Print Pod to prototype and mass produce multiple product lines, and we show them the potential cost savings, which can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, there will no longer be a need to farm out jobs overseas. These companies can start hiring again."
