Some of our successes

The Seal of Excellence is a quality brand awarded by the EU to excellent research and innovation project proposals presented at Horizon 2020, which are positively evaluated but not funded due to lack of available resources. This program recognizes the value of the proposal and helps other funding organizations to benefit from the Horizon 2020 evaluation process.

The Maker Faire is the meeting event for makers, people who give life to their technological ideas. Over the years, we have participated in order to show the development of our skills and knowledge. We have been awarded several times with the “Maker of Merit” award, a recognition for the authenticity of our ideas.

Elettronica In has always been the Italian reference magazine for electronics enthusiasts and makers. To appear on the cover with our first model of cutting plotter, the P400, was a great satisfaction for us!

The P400 was our first successful market test. We were immediately very satisfied to have obtained funding through a Kickstarter campaign as recognition of the quality of the product we presented. It was an important result for us as the backers were also the buyers.

The campaign

The Oranje model we presented on Kickstarter few years ago is, in many ways, the same one we sell today. The challenge with the Oranje was to abandon the P400 prototype and create a new product with a significantly higher level of maturity by improving and innovating many aspects.

The campaign

Azul’s Kickstarter campaign we presented few years ago was the fastest we have ever done. Its purpose was to get a feedback on a larger model before introducing it on the market. We have introduced new elements such as the rotate table and the software on the tablet.
