Technogym Using Delta WASP 3D Printer for Fitness Equipment Prototypes

Top 3D Shop corporate blog

WASP has concluded a partnership with fitness equipment manufacturer Technogym, which uses a Delta WASP 4070 Industrial 4.0 3D printer for prototyping its new equipment for fitness. (This model also has an improved version called Delta WASP 4070 Industrial X that features considerably higher print speeds.)

Technogym purchased the printer in order to reduce its maintenance costs and enable the creation of large prototype parts. The machine proved to be a great tool that shortens lead times, especially for large components. "We chose the Delta WASP 4070 INDUSTRIAL 4.0 system for many reasons, one of the most important is certainly its large print volume feasibility," Technogym explained. "We also appreciate its printing speed and the much lower cost of support-materials, which allows us to buy more material spools and make more tests."
