Weerg pushes the accelerator and sets a new record. Just over three months after the launch of the new HP Jet Fusion 5210 series, the Italian e-commerce company that offers CNC and 3D machining, has acquired 6 3D industrial printers, 3 of those were already operating at the Gardigiano headquarters.
“This is, at present day* the largest single order ever placed at EMEA level”, - confirms with pride Davide Ferrulli, Country Lead 3D Printing HP Italia. - “A record that we are pleased to share with a unique company like Weerg, with which we have been actively collaborating since its entry into additive manufacturing”.
Innovation, on the other hand, has always been an integral part of Weerg's DNA, as well as of its eclectic founder, Matteo Rigamonti: “We like to call ourselves a 5.0 Industry because we demand the best from our production department. That’s why we constantly invest in the best technologies available”. It is no coincidence that Weerg's fleet of machines is unique in Italy and includes top-of-the-range solutions for all types of processing: 2 batteries of 5 Hermle C42U 5-axis continuous fully automated through the use of anthropomorphic robots for CNC, and a 3D department in constant expansion. All this to support a continuously increasing demand, even with special machining and finishing. Just consider that on the platform weerg.com conveys daily more than 13,000 requests for quotes that convert into an average daily of 400 orders.
“An exponential growth especially in the 3D field, where the users, in constant evolution, are more and more attentive both to the quality of the product and to the speed of delivery times. With this in mind, the new HP Jet Fusion series, which includes new software and data management, offers the industrial performance we need, guaranteeing precision, repeatability and speed for runs of up to thousands of units.”, says Rigamonti.
The new HP Jet Fusion 5210 series delivers increased productivity, greater flexibility, streamlined workflows and enhanced, automated processes, and will enable Weerg to increase its production capacity by 50%, while improving print quality, which is made with PA 12 Nylon. This thermoplastic material, ideal for both functional prototypes and final parts, features excellent chemical resistance to oil, grease, aliphatic hydrocarbons and alkalis, making it suitable for subsequent finishing processes. The entire production is further enhanced by the use of advanced software for process automation, which include a constantly updated ERP system and nesting software that automatically organizes the "match" on all available builds in order to further optimize the loads.
Speed and efficiency, along with the ease of use of the platform and the online quote, have always been the founding assets of Weerg, born with the desire to bring simplicity, quality and timeliness to the field of mechanics and additive manufacturing. "Our goal is to create millions of different units per year" - says Rigamonti – “and we can achieve it through perfect work organization and a flow that allows both automation and precision. For this reason, we will continue to rely on cutting-edge partners such as HP, investing in the latest generation of systems with industry standards.”.
