Sintratec 3D Printers Expand to South Africa/ Source: Kurtosis International
Solid Edge Technology, a forerunner in the introduction of cutting-edge 3D technology to the area, has teamed with Sintratec, the first Swiss company specialising in selective laser sintering (SLS) solutions, in an effort to enhance the state of the art of 3D printing in South Africa.
In the early 2000s, Solid Edge Technology was known as 3D Solids Software Solutions. The company used its Solid Edge CAD Software reseller business to expose its customers to the first Stratasys 3D printing machines. Solid Edge Technology was founded in 2009 and has since introduced KeyShot 3D Rendering, Modo Software, and a comprehensive array of services in computer-generated images, 3D visualisation, animation, and rendering to South Africa.
The dedication to new ideas continued even after then. Solid Edge Technology has provided fast prototyping services for over five years using tools like the Stratasys UPrint SE Plus Printer and the whole MakerBot 3D printer range. The firm is a South African distributor of MakerBot 3D printers and its employees have been working in the field for over 20 years. Solid Edge Technology has a strong reputation in the nation, so it made sense for them to partner with HP to introduce the cutting-edge HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer series here.
Solid Edge Technology, with headquarters in Johannesburg, has been a pioneer in the 3D printing industry for three decades. The company’s recent partnership with Sintratec is intended to help strengthen its position in the industry.

Solid Edge Technology’s CEO and owner, Trevor Berry, is enthusiastic about their new cooperation with Sintratec and its possibilities in the South African additive manufacturing sector. These innovations will fill a void that has hitherto gone unsatisfied in the market.
Sintratec, with its Swiss roots and focus on desktop SLS printers, has become well-known in Europe for its low-cost and space-saving SLS 3D printing solutions. This has lowered the barrier to entry for SLS technology by removing the prohibitive cost of industrial-grade equipment for smaller firms, research institutes, and other organisations. The AM community has taken notice of the brand even though it is not as well-known or as prevalent as some other prominent 3D printing firms.
Sintratec is well-known for bringing high-quality SLS 3D printing to the masses with products like the Sintratec Kit and Sintratec S2. Daimler Buses (formerly EvoBus) of Germany employs additive manufacturing to produce interior components for buses, and INFACO of France uses its products to produce hand power tools.
Sintratec’s technologies allow South African customers a pliable entrance into industrial 3D printing because to their versatility and scalability. Sintratec’s new cooperation with Solid Edge Technology provides a major potential to grow its sales and service footprint in Africa and influence the development of the continent’s local market.
Because of this collaboration, Sintratec will be able to increase its presence in the African market and strengthen its position as a market leader in the 3D printing industry.
