With the support of Materialise, and a high quality prototype, Czech company Plastkon launched a new snow sled that exceeded their commercial expectations.
Experts in producing child-safe snow sleds, Czech-based Plastkon was faced with a challenge for the upcoming ISPO trade show in Munich; they needed to produce a display prototype of their new “Firecom” sleigh not only quickly, but also with a very high quality finish.
They found many companies that could create the needed part according to the tight timelines, but in the end, only Materialise could produce it on time and with the high quality finish that was required. The Materialise engineering team collaborated with the Plastkon designers, and adapted the design file to ensure that the prototype would be as close as possible to the finished product. The part was then produced in laser sintering with a perfectly smooth, black finish.
The ISPO trade show was a great success and the Plastkon sales team received orders and positive feedback that reached beyond their expectations.
