Prozis redefines innovation in collaboration with NM3D Ibérica and Prodways, enhancing its already recognized leadership with cutting-edge additive manufacturing technology.

Prozis, established in 2007 and acknowledged as a pioneer in wellness products, stands out for its consistent adoption of advanced technologies in its production processes. Recently, the company intensified this commitment to innovation through a strategic collaboration with NM3D Ibérica and Prodways. This partnership represents a significant step in their journey, marking a new level of operational excellence and technological innovation.

ACQUIRED TECHNOLOGY

Prozis has always needed 3D printing to prototype their products, and they used to do it through outside partnerships, but there were two significant disadvantages: long response times and high costs.

After a detailed analysis of different 3D printers and technologies, Prozis opted for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology due to its versatility in printing complex geometries and superior dimensional quality. The printing volume was also a decisive criterion, adapting to the variety and dimensions of the products developed by the company. The choice of the Prodways P1000X reflects the need for a balanced and economically sustainable solution, aligning technical capacity and cost.

In a context where product variety and, particularly, the specific dimensions of the products we develop play a crucial role, print volume has emerged as the second determining factor in choosing Prodways Machines.

PROCESS

The company adopts an internal product development strategy in areas such as supplementation, nutrition, and electronics. In this context, rapid prototyping is vital, especially in the electronics department.

Prozis, at the forefront of product development, integrates the ProMaker P1000X 3D printer, an affordable solution for additive prototyping and production.

This printer stands out for its diversity of materials, allowing choices tailored to specific needs, and excels in efficiency and speed, with a considerable printing volume of 300 x 300 x 360 mm, printing up to two liters per hour. Precision and high quality are ensured by a fine laser beam and advanced thermal control.

The PA12 material offers strong tensile strength, durability, excellent mechanical properties, ease in post-processing, and low water absorption, ideal for creating functional prototypes and robust final parts.

Prodways Machine’s P1000X represents not only a technical choice but also a thoughtful investment in a solution that will propel Prozis activity’s to new levels of success.

RESULTS

This collaboration resulted in two innovative products: “Slant” and “Smart Dots”.

The “Slant” is a training accessory designed to increase body mobility and improve muscle definition. Its creation involved multiple prototypes to ensure that the dimensions and morphology met the defined ergonomic objectives.

On the other hand, “Smart Dots” is a set of luminous and touch-sensitive electronic components. When paired with the Prozis Go app, they offer a variety of workouts to develop reflexes and skills in various sports.

Benefits

Prozis faced challenges relying on external partners for 3D prototyping, including long response times to receive the prototype from the vendor and high costs. The need to consult multiple suppliers and their availability prolonged the time to obtain prototypes, slowing down the development iteration process. Additionally, the individual cost of each print was inflated due to supplier margins, increasing development costs.

In this regard, the shift to internal 3D printing brought significant cost and time reduction, strengthening autonomy and flexibility in the prototyping process. This strategic change optimizes development efficiency, driving product innovation. This shift not only accelerates timelines but also reduces costs, allowing to achieve greater flexibility and independence in the prototyping cycle. This advancement represents a significant milestone in the ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation in product creation.
