Multi-Product Specialist supports customers through co-engineering and facilitates high industry standards to 3D print parts on demand

 

UTRECHT,
THE NETHERLANDS – Media OutReach – 13 March 2020
Ultimaker, the global leader in desktop
3D printing, today announced that ERIKS, a provider of technical components
and services to all sections of industry worldwide, has scaled up the 3D
printing production capacity for its OEM and MRO customers. ERIKS equipped its production
facilities in Alkmaar, The Netherlands, with multiple Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundles,
to co-engineer with customers and offer them full support in identifying,
designing and printing applications. A special Clean Manufacturing Facility offers
EC1935/2004 manufacturing to customers of ERIKS in need for food-safe parts.

ERIKS has
7,500 skilled people working at more than 300 locations worldwide, serving
industrial customers in 22 different industries. Sander Splinter, Managing
Director at ERIKS Netherlands: “We see enormous potential in 3D printing for
industrial purposes. By combining our industry, product and application
knowledge with the accessible and reliable 3D printing solutions from Ultimaker,
we can fully support our customers in co-engineering parts with more speed and
design freedom when using injection moulding. In 2019, we managed to save over
350,000 euros only by implementing 3D printed production aids and eliminating
safety hazards in our own facilities. We are now gradually helping our customers
to benefit from 3D printing, by advising them based on data analysis on which
parts are suitable to print, but also through site-scans at their facilities. Based
on these visits we can co-engineer and print the identified applications on the
Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle, guaranteeing quality, reproducibility and reliability
of the parts according to their specific industry standards.”

Job van de
Sande, Head of Technology Sealing & Polymer Technology at ERIKS: “For parts
and tools used in environments in which food is produced, for instance, we
developed the ERIKS’ Clean Manufacturing Facility. This space is EC1935/2004 compliant
for its manufacturing, has dedicated clean production areas and a large-scale
ISO Class 6 cleanroom. In addition to the European food safe compliances, we
are currently working on earning the same food-safe FDA compliances and
certifications for 3D printing as well. This would enable us to 3D print certified
parts and tools that can be used in an atmosphere in which food is produced.”

Jos Burger,
CEO at Ultimaker: “As shown in the 3D Printing Sentiment Index, only 35 percent of companies have adopted
additive manufacturing, while in many industries worldwide margins are currently
under high pressure. Efficiency is key to bring a competitive edge and 3D
printing plays a major role in this, as ERIKS experienced first-hand with achieving
their impressive cost- and time savings. I am proud to see how ERIKS shares their
industry specific expertise and combines it with our reliable Ultimaker
ecosystem. I am positive that this collaboration helps to accelerate the
adoption of 3D printing and that together we will make the industry work better.”
