Solid Edge Technology, a South African 3D printing specialist, and Sintratec have entered into a partnership that sees Solid Edge Technology become the first distributor of Sintratec systems – specifically the Swiss SLS 3D printer – in the country.

Based near Johannesburg, South Africa, Solid Edge Technology has been active in the 3D printing sector for three decades. The company specializes in design for additive manufacturing (DFAM) as well as production optimization within the 3D printing environment. To date, Solid Edge Technology has been using and distributing HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) machines. Now, the company is expanding its product range to include SLS 3D printers from Sintratec.

Founded as a start-up in 2014, Sintratec is the first Swiss manufacturer and developer of additive manufacturing solutions in the field of selective laser sintering (SLS). This powder-based process enables the production of complex and high-quality components in a short amount of time.

Characterized by their modularity and scalability, Sintratec’s systems now offer South African customers a flexible entry into industrial 3D printing. The new partnership with Solid Edge Technology represents a significant opportunity for Sintratec to expand its sales and service network on the African continent and to shape the local market.

“We are excited for the new possibilities that this partnership with Sintratec will allow us to explore within the South African additive manufacturing market. These technologies will bridge a required gap in the market, that currently is unfulfilled. Sintratec will complement our current product offering, perfectly,” said Trevor Berry, Director and Owner of Solid Edge Technology.

Recently, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) completed South Africa’s first-ever 3D printed building, thanks to a collaborative effort between UJ’s Department of Architecture and Design and the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) – utilizing a CyBe Robot Crawler and a cement-based material to print a one-room structure.
