For quite some time in 3D Ultimaker They were looking for a way to get the necessary funds to be able to strengthen their R&D activity and thus be able to provide new and interesting products to all their customers. After a long time trying to predict what their next moves will be, it finally seems that everything will come true thanks to the fact that the European Investment Bank has granted them nothing less than a loan of 15 millones de euros.
Thanks to this investment, as the Dutch from 3D Ultimaker have already announced, the factory that the company has in Geldermalsen will be fully visible. revitalized and even increase its endowment in resources for research and development of new products as well as the improvement of those already existing in its catalog. On the other hand, this capital investment will allow 3D Ultimaker to advance in its internationalization process, finally reaching markets outside Europe.
Thanks to this capital injection, 3D Ultimaker will be able to begin its expansion outside the European market.
If we look back, surely not even the leaders of 3D Ultimaker thought at first how far they could go, especially if we take into account that the company was born during the RepRap movement, initiator of the personal manufacture of FDM / FFF type 3D printers that use plastic filaments as a manufacturing material by melting it and deposition in thin layers, a technology owned by Stratasys until the patent expired in 2009, what facilitated the possibility of entry of more players in this sector of the market.
At this point you will surely know quite well the catalog offered by 3D Ultimaker where its latest model, the Ultimaker 2, available in three different versions, it is nothing more than an evolution of their first Ultimaker, a machine that caused a sensation among the Maree community and DIY enthusiasts.
