We were in Switzerland at the beginning of march and presented our printer at the AM Expo in Lucerne to a very interested audience.
Furthermore our business idea was awarded within the Munich businessplan competition this month. In the first round Kumovis was one of 10 winners out of 144 applications.
At Formnext 2017 in Frankfurt in November, Kumovis presented the PEEK printer to the public for the first time. In January 2018 at the Arab Health in Dubai, the prototype of the TPE printer was shown. We were able to hold many exciting and interesting discussions at our first trade fairs and so we are starting the year 2018 with a lot of input and motivation.
In 2015 we needed a small series of PEEK samples ourselves and could not find a satisfactory solution on the market. Thus we started with developing our own PEEK-printer. Being pushed with great feedback on the "3D Tage" in St. Georgen, we continued to improve our product and our business plan. Since April 2017 we are funded by EXIST grant of research and are now able to work full-time on our aim to launch our printer in 2018.
