Rize Inc., the manufacturer of the Rize One Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) 3D printer, has announced a partnership with manufacturing optimization specialist production Services Management, Inc. (PSMI). (Read more about Rize Inc.)
The PSMI, through the subsidiary Azoth and with the help of Rize, has launched the Additive Indirect Supplies Crib, a new type of business model to provide manufacturers with combined additive and subtractive manufacturing tools.
The CEO and President of Rize Andy Kalambi, in an interview to 3D Printing Industry, stated
“Today is a landmark day, not just for Rize and PSMI/AZOTH, but also for the entire Additive Manufacturing Industry,”
THROUGH THIS PARTNERSHIP WE ARE ANNOUNCING TODAY, WE ARE DEMONSTRATING HOW MAKING INDUSTRIAL 3D PRINTING EASY TO USE CAN OPEN THE DOORS TO NEW USERS AND NEW BUSINESS MODELS.”
Additive Indirect Supplies Crib
A service providing manufacturers with the means of producing custom prototypes, tooling, gages, and fixtures on-site.
Through PSMI, Azoth has access to services at over 250 manufacturing plants around the world. Subtractive manufacturing capabilities are already provided to these locations through EGC Precision.
The vision with Rize then, according to PSMI co-president Scott Burke, is to enable each and every one of these locations “delivers innovative additive manufacturing products and services to our customers.”
Rize’s future-proof APD platform is enabling a visionary company like PSMI/AZOTH to create unprecedented value for their customers and expand their current offering in the area of indirect supplies with additive-based offerings.”
Saving the production
“Versus” subtractive manufacturing alone, Rize additive manufacturing can produce estimated part cost reductions of up 50X and lead time reductions of 30X.
PSMI already counts itself as “the cost savings team” for customers such as General Motors, Ford and John Deere. According to Burke,
Adding RIZE’s cutting-edge additive manufacturing solutions will further our position as manufacturing technology leaders and enable us to keep reducing our customers’ cost to manufacture.”
Commercial shipments of the Rize One 3D printer officially started a year ago in June 2017. In November 2017 the company appoints Kalambi as the new CEO to help direct sales. Watch the video about:
