Oceanz enables you to implement corporate social responsibility (CSR) in a concrete manner. 3D printing is a sustainable technique because the waste materials are kept to a minimum and the material is reused (zero / less waste). When developing a product, Oceanz always prints exactly the required number of pieces. This way, unnecessarily large numbers, incorrect products, waste and failure costs are reduced.
Additive manufacturing and sustainability
Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing in particular contribute to improving sustainability. It offers opportunities! Consider, for example, the extension of the life cycle of products and materials. Products can be fully tailored to the wishes and needs of the customer. In addition, AM can help with repair, maintenance and management.
Optimize raw material use
Additive Manufacturing also contributes to optimizing the use of raw materials during the development and production process. The technique helps us to develop a closed ‘material chain’. The production technique allows you to redesign products. We can efficiently handle the valuable raw materials with the design, production and user phase. Last but not least, the new ‘supply chains’ contribute to the sustainability of our society. 3D printing is ideal for new collaborations, new supply chains, production in the Netherlands, etcetera.
Sustainable 3D printing? Oceanz EcoPowder
Oceanz invests a lot in research to realize a sustainable production process. This has led to the introduction of Oceanz EcoPowder. A unique sustainable material that contributes to your ‘carbon footprint’. The material has almost the same characteristics as our standard Oceanz PA12. With your order you can indicate whether you want to use Oceanz EcoPowder.
By reusing the 3D printing material, we have virtually no waste stream from our old powder and we can process our material sustainably. This makes 3D printing / prototyping a very sustainable production technique. This doesn’t only give you a good feeling, but also the functional properties of the material remain the same. The zero-waste promise is also redeemed.
