Industry Expert Talks About 3D Printing In Latin America: 'We Want Printers To Supplement Other Machines'

The 3D printing technology, like every other industry technology, has to be a part of a productive process. On its own, it’s much more similar to a toy,” Trimaker Co-Founder Alexis Caporale — recently selected as one of the 50 most innovative young leaders in the world — told Benzinga during a recent interview.

3D Printing In Latin America

Although slowly gaining traction, the 3D printing industry is still nascent in Latin America. However, there is one company betting on disruption.

Multiple-award-winning Trimaker is the leader in terms of sales in 3D printing in the region, serving clients like Staples, Inc., Toyota Motor Corp (ADR), Kraft Heinz Co and Telefonica S.A. (ADR). The company not only manufactures its own 3D printers, but also offers materials and related services.

Emerging In An Emerging Market

We started with hardware, making 3D printer prototypes based on resin technology, back in 2010,” Caporale revealed. By 2012, we had the first working prototype, and began manufacturing machines. Hardware lead us to software, then we went into materials, and today we’re the leading 3D printers company in Latin America.”

What we do now is manufacture machines, with a much more integrated chain, from Asia to Argentina. In addition, we work -a lot- with the implementation of this technology in productive processes,” he continued. We want our printers to supplement other machines, harnessing the full potential of this technology.”

A Working Company


Right now, we are the only Latin American company in the retail segment, and the only ones with a real distribution chain assembled, selling in stores like Staples and others,” Caporale explained.
