Rivelin Robotics has been named among the winners of the Formnext Start-up Challenge for 2022. Organized by Mesago Messe Frankfurt as part of the annual Formnext event, this is the eighth edition of the start-up challenge, which sees UK-based Rivelin Robotics chosen alongside other international start-up companies Photosynthetic (Netherlands), SphereCube (Italy), Alpha Powders (Poland) and Lattice Medical (France).
“We have been working tirelessly to develop and demonstrably prove our solution for automated post-processing of metal parts,” says Robert Bush, CEO of Rivelin Robotics. “We are now in a position where we can do just that and we can’t wait to show visitors at Formnext how far we have come and the solutions that we can offer them for their metal AM production applications.”
Rivelin Robotics will be exhibiting at Formnext (Hall 12.0, Stand B41) and showcasing its solution for the automated post-processing of metal AM parts and components. For support removal and targeted finishing, Rivelin has developed NetShape Robots, driven by the NetShape control software, which uses machine learning and traditional deterministic control theory. The result is an automated support removal and finishing solution that provides reduction in costs that result from poor quality, and the reduction of human risk and variability.
“Every year, the start-ups in the AM industry take technology and application innovations to the next level and continue to impress with the rising quality of their developments and business planning,” says Sascha F Wenzler, vice president of Formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. “Once again, these companies have showcased the great potential of this industry, highlighting the fact that the sector produces significant developments that, in the future, will influence our industry, medicine, and other areas of life.”
The Formnext Start-up Challenge recognizes companies that are no older than 5 years for innovative, viable business ideas. Its judging panel consists of prominent representatives from industry, science, media and investment.
As a winner of the 2022 Start-up Challenge Rivelin Robotics will be presenting at the Formnext Pitchnext event on Tuesday, November 15.
“We are really looking forward to making new contacts and developing new business relationships at Formnext,” says Bush. “We welcome all interested parties looking for automated metal post-processing solutions and will be available at the Pitchnext event as well as throughout the week on our stand.”
