MetraLabs Germany is a developer of autonomous navigating service robots for different applications worldwide. Applications include industrial robots, robots for retail uses, research, etc.

The Challenge – The company faces the challenge of designing and creating robots in different sizes, for clients with different needs, on the spot. Each of these designs differs in small details yet needs to articulate the same quality and functionality. So, the company needs to utilize strong yet versatile working tools.

The Solution – Modix’s Big60 3D printer provides an in-house solution for manufacturing parts, prototyping models and testing versatile robots and the products’ functionality. 

“We finished a robot for a new project last week. All the housing parts were printed with our Modix3D printer. The parts were grinded, filled and painted afterwards.
We are thinking about purchasing a second printer.”
