Polish 3D printers manufacturer Zmorph has announced its new strategy and branding to further target the industrial sector; unveiled a new addition to its 3D printer portfolio - Zmorph Fab; and revealed plans to release the Zmorph i500 industrial 3D printer in Q1, 2021.
3D Printers That Deliver - Zmorph's expansion into the industrial market
Zmorph secured 1.2 million USD in a financing round in early 2020 and is currently in talks with new investors. Part of the funding has been used to develop new branding and website reflecting the evolution of Zmorph since its foundations in 2012. The company is shifting more towards a professional/industrial market segment, and the new branding reflects Zmorph's core brand message: 3D printers that deliver.
Zmorph has experienced rapid growth in recent years. In 2020, the company acquired 3D Printers, owners of the HBOT brand. The HBOT team's experience in the manufacture of industrial-grade 3D printers has been key to Zmorph's move into the professional market segment, and expanding product portfolio with new 3D printers and solutions for modern manufacturing. For more information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing 2020-2030: COVID Edition.
Bartosz Lanc, Zmorph's CMO explains: "Today is the single most important moment for the Zmorph brand since 2012. We have evolved from a dynamic startup into a reliable brand and partner for professionals in over 120 countries. The rebranding will enable Zmorph to further expand into the global market, accomplish global growth objectives and strengthen our presence in the professional 3D printer market. Today, more than ever, Zmorph is becoming more competitive, and offering more capabilities to our customers and business partners."
New Zmorph Fab, the Most Advanced and Easiest to Use, All-in-One 3D Printer
Today, the Polish manufacturer unveils the new Zmorph Fab - the most advanced and easy-to-use all-in-one desktop 3D printer, and a successor to the well-known versatile ZMorph VX. Zmorph Fab features an interchangeable toolhead system that allows 3D printing, CNC milling, and laser engraving and cutting with the same device.
Eliza Wróbel, Product Manager at Zmorph explains: "Zmorph Fab is made to be easy-to-use and reliable. The latter is crucial for a product that operates three different workflows and is meant to work 24/7. The new Zmorph Fab's features are based on customers and business partners' feedback making it the most advanced yet easy-to-use all-in-one 3D printer on the market. With new features like HEPA/Fumes Filter Zmorph Fab is a great addition to modern classrooms, FabLabs, workshops, and design labs."
The Brand New 3D Printing Single Extruder Toolhead
The all-new Single Extruder Toolhead delivers faster prints with best quality. The new extruder gains motion sensors for filament detection. It's now easier to feed the filament, and the machine will stop once it runs out of the material and wait for the user to feed the next spool of filament. The redesigned cooling fan improves the air flow, which allows faster overhangs 3D printing.
The Advanced CNC Environment
Zmorph Fab features an expanded CNC workflow. Starting from the new CNC worktable that was designed to allow easy and very stable material mounting (and is open for custom designs), to refurbished Voxelizer with CAM-standard workflow for CNC procedures with STEP operations, ability to change the tool within one G-code, and path visualisation.
The Safety Measures Air Filtration and Smart Toolheads
Due to the demand for educational standards and user safety, the new Zmorph Fab is equipped with HEPA/Carbon filtration system, which is optional for the users. The air filtration process makes it safer and cleaner to work with materials producing semi-toxic fumes and particles, such as ABS or fumes created during laser engraving.
Zmorph Fab detects which toolhead is installed with a SMART Toolheads System. Toolhead changing is now easier than ever before, which cuts down the time spent on workflow switching. Last but not least, the new machine is equipped with industrial grade electronics, meaning that it is a desktop 3D printer, but with the heart of a professional industrial machine.
The New Voxelizer
Zmorph Fab will be available in two bundles. The All-in-One set includes Single Extruder Toolhead 1.75, CNC Milling Toolhead and Laser Toolhead and costs 3999 USD/3599 Euros. The 3D Printer option is a cheaper variant for people and companies interested in the 3D printing toolhead only, and it costs 2959 USD/2659 Euros. There's an extra option of making a custom set.
You can order Zmorph Fab via Zmorph online store or via one of the authorized resellers worldwide beginning today.
New Zmorph i500 planned for 2021
In Q1 2021, the company plans to launch Zmorph i500. This new workbench 3D printer for the professional and industrial markets includes a huge work area, single & dual extrusion 3D printing and a competitive quality-to-price ratio. Zmorph believes that its new professional and industrial market offer will be a success, as the company combines the expertise of teams that have developed the HBOT F300, an industrial printer successful in Poland, and its workhorse Zmorph VX, now Zmorph Fab. Zmorph and HBOT's joint R&D team is working on the product which addresses professional expectations in terms of reliability, repeatability and reproducibility, as well as serviceability. Zmorph is promising to deliver a full ecosystem. Alongside the machine, Zmorph has re-developed its slicer software and on-machine firmware. Zmorph is also in the process of acquiring a 3D filament manufacturer, to ensure even more predictable delivery from Zmorph i500.
Maciej Nawrocki, Zmorph's CEO states: "We have had a very good year despite COVID. Our growth is strong, our strategy is solid, reliable, and backed up by investors who trust in us to make Zmorph a success. The 3D printing market is maturing, moving towards professional and industrial applications. Anticipating this direction, two years ago thanks to our smart marketing guys and customer-sensitive sales, we have created a product roadmap that addresses the trend. Next year, we will be launching new products to address this market."
Zmorph is also working together with distributors and resellers to bring the new printer to the market in the first half of 2021. This will be a global launch where the new rebranding and marketing campaign will support partners in reaching end customers who are sure to benefit from the value that the new Zmorph i500 brings. Zmorph has established partnerships with well-known distributors such as RS Components in Europe; Profound3D, Matterhackers in the US; 3D Criar in Brazil; 3D Prima, Hava3D, Maxwell, Beets 3D, Maha Chem in Asia; Torstar in Australia, and more. Altogether, there are 35 resellers worldwide.
To celebrate the release of Zmorph Fab, the company is also updating the slicing software. The new version of Voxelizer is ready for the refurbished CNC workflow, features more presets for 3D printing, and underwent rebranding to reflect the current brand image.
About Zmorph S.A.
The Zmorph brand offers high-quality multitool 3D printers along with professional support, knowledge base, Zmorph Academy and supplementary materials. The company is well-known around the world. The brand started in 2012 in Wroclaw, Poland and since worked to fill the multitool niche in the rapidly expanding 3D printing market.
The main objective of the Zmorph was to make 3D printing technology available to users unfamiliar with programming, electronics or mechanics, but who can benefit from a simple way of prototyping for their own products. Implementation of an open 3D printing FFF technology (Fused Filament Fabrication), or layering of liquid plastic, also enables many artists, architects, designers, and sculptors to greatly accelerate the development of their ideas.
Zmorph 3D printers are highly recognised by the 3D printing community and have received positive reviews by industry media. https://zmorph3d.com/
