ERM Automatismes

ERM Automatismes has over thirty years of experience in robotics. They build and integrate robotic systems for both industry and education, which are often customized for very specific applications. This requires them to fabricate a wide variety of bespoke parts. Before investing in the Markforged platform, ERM already owned and operated a wide variety of FDM, SLA, and SLS 3D printers — however, none of the machines printed parts strong enough to function in more industrial environments. They decided to acquire both metal and continuous carbon fiber printers from Markforged to add strong parts to their fabrication capabilities.

ERM has used their Markforged 3D printers to generate value throughout their production facility — they’ve found that the average 3D printed part is ten times cheaper than its traditionally manufactured counterparts. One specific application they’ve found value in is highly customized end-of-arm tooling. Markforged printed parts are strong, reliable, and can integrate with pneumatic systems. ERM has seen immediate return on their investment: their Markforged composite printers paid for themselves in just six months.
