Development process with 3D printing gave Rotapure a new design
In a MADE Demonstration project together with the Danish Technological Institute, Rotapure has tested 3D printing, and the technology has now given the company a completely new design for their laboratory equipment.
- The things we thought were very complicated and cumbersome to do in terms of meeting customer needs, we have found are much easier than we first expected, says Peter Munkholm Nielsen, co-founder and CSO of Rotapure after the company has tested 3D printing for the manufacture of their products.

Rotapure produces laboratory equipment and has participated in a MADE Demonstration project to help test whether 3D printing was the solution to accommodate the needs that Rotapure meet from e.g. clients.
- Sometimes there are questions like, “what if it could also do this”, or “can’t we change this a bit,” says Peter Munkholm Nielsen.
In the demonstration project, Rotapure received help from the Danish Technological Institute to make several new test tube holders and a completely new design for their rotator system, which the test tube holders are inserted into.
You can hear more about Rotapure's solution and the demonstration project in the video below.
