Eindhoven Engine unlocks ‘smartest region’s collective intelligence
- Digital technologies
The family owned company Roffelsen started in 1977 with the production of clothes line cables. The experience in plastics, tailor made packaging, the extrusion technology and the entrepreneurship of the family made the company decide to enter the additive manufacturing industry. Roffelsen 3D is now a reliable manufacturer of high quality, innovative filaments and compounds for 3D printing.
Roffelsen is based in Brainport Eindhoven because of its large ecosystem of high tech manufacturers. Being part of a network is of great importance for success. Together with other additive manufacturing companies they join forces to make Brainport Eindhoven a renowned AM hub. Verbakel explains: “The market has a huge potential and the availability of designers, experts on materials and young talent is what makes Brainport Eindhoven so interesting. We work together with Fontys University of Applied Sciences. They are educating young talent on designing in 3D. That’s necessary to further develop the 3D print technology.”
