Ropes Edge Additive Manufacturing
FORMERO’S DIGITAL WAREHOUSING ELIMINATES INVENTORY COSTS TO ALLOW FOR A LEAN AND AGILE SUPPLY OPERATION.
Ropes Edge is an American start-up company dedicated to supplying innovative safety equipment that protects rope from hazardous abrasive edges used in rescue and rigging systems.
Dirk Dorenbros, owner of Ropes Edge, utilises HP MJF 3D Printing for both prototyping and Additive Manufacturing. Based in America, Dirk wanted to expand globally, without incurring distribution and warehouse expenses.
Formero (formerly GoProto ANZ) provided Ropes Edge the freedom to manufacture in Australia. Providing economic feasibility and a broader global reach.
Formero produces parts on-demand using HP MJF 3D printers. And then ships directly to Ropes Edge’s customers anywhere within Asia Pacific. Reducing Ropes Edge inventory costs and maintaining lean, agile supply operations.
