Long term research collaborations are good opportunities for our partners to secure dedicated engineers at iPrint to work on their projects, to train junior engineers whom we transfer with the acquired knowledge and skills to the company afterwards and to share laboratories and equipment at iPrint to accelerate the project developments.
Renting a lab at iPrint is the best option to have access to our well-equipped facility and to be in close contact with our experts. Several companies have already followed this option and have now a lab at iPrint. It has to be stressed that our labs in the facility of the Marly Innovation Center are already equipped with the necessary infrastructure for the handling of chemicals, fluids, etc.
Furthermore, we can evaluate, optimize and co-develop new materials (inks, substrates, powders, etc.) or equipment (print heads, pumps, pre-/post-treatment units, etc.) or platforms (roll-to-roll, sheet-to-sheet, binder jetting, etc.) through partnerships. Several suppliers have already chosen iPrint to test their latest products, which we will be able to use for our applied research industry projects, opening up new markets for them.
iPrint also has long-lasting partnerships with several industrial and academic institutions around the world. These partnerships are key for the partners to have access to new applications and customers, and for iPrint to have access to cutting-edge technologies and materials.
