Robo 3D Ltd, a company focused on the design and distribution of 3D printers and associated products for the desktop segment of the 3D printing industry, has selected Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd, trading as Foxconn Technology Group, as its production partner for the company's latest award-winning Robo R2 smart 3D printer, according to a statement released by the company to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

The Robo R2 High Performance Smart 3D Printer with WiFi is the newest addition to Robo's product offering, a full featured Wi-Fi enabled 3D printer targeted at the prosumer segment of the desktop market. Validating this innovative new product, the new Robo R32 Smart 3D Printer with Robo App for iOS was awarded the "CES 2017 Best of Innovation Award" for the 3D printing category at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the largest consumer electronics tradeshow, which took place from January 5-8, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As outlined in a previous statement, Robo has been actively pursuing additional production partners to diversify its manufacturing risk, including mitigating potential production capacity constraints. The agreement with Foxconn is the culmination of an extensive search conducted by Robo to source a high-quality and cost-effective manufacturing partner for the Robo R2 smart 3D printer.
