Boston-based digital manufacturing company Voxel8 has announced an exclusive agreement with Italian fashion accessory manufacturer Eddy Ricami for the use of Voxel8’s ActiveLab 3D printing technology to produce high-end fashion accessories.

Installing the ActiveLab system at its Montecosaro manufacturing facility in Italy will enable Eddy Ricami to offer unique functional design embellishments to its customers for their footwear and apparel products, while delivering shorter design cycle times, reduced lead times, and lower inventory costs.

Voxel8 technology has gained global commercial traction in athletic and leisure footwear, and we are delighted to expand our reach into the European high fashion market with a distinguished partner such as Eddy Ricami who have built a reputation for innovation and quality,” said Friedrich von Gottberg, Voxel8 CEO.

The ActiveLab digital manufacturing system Eddy Ricami has purchased from Voxel8 will be installed at its Montecosaro manufacturing facility in Italy. The technology will enable the firm to respond far quicker to the demands of its high-fashion customers for high-quality and custom-designed products, while removing the supply chain risks of overseas production.

Through our purchase of the ActiveLab system we look to bring new, customized design elements, leveraging the latest in additive manufacturing technology,” said Gianluca Bordoni, CEO and Owner of Eddy Ricami. “In our evaluation of 3D printing offerings, we found Voxel8’s technology was uniquely positioned for printing on textiles.
