A pioneer in 3D printing
Martin Bondéus is the founder of Bondtech. As a child Martin had a big interest in technology. Besides carpentry he also liked to tinker with cars, mopeds and build radio controlled airplanes.
During Martin’s career he have worked in different positions like production technician for a company producing sheet metal parts by laser cutting and stamping, after this he joined a mold maker company where he designed injeciton molds for plastic and zink and did the camprograms for electrodemilling.
Later on he switched to an injection molder where he took the position as the development manager with responsibility for product development, mold design and buyer of injection molds. Martin then joined as a production and technical manager at company that develop, produce and sell robots for the injection molding industry.
Before starting full time at Bondtech Martin was the development manager for a larger swedish producer of office furniture.
A Swedish invention
The company was established in 2014 by Martin Bondéus, who had previously used the 3D printing technology in his work as a product developer. When certain patents regarding the FDM technology expired at the beginning of the 2010s, Martin set out to build a 3D printer based on a pre-designed kit. The result, however, wasn’t satisfying. The performance and quality just weren’t there.
Stubbornly, Martin therefore started building his very own printer from the ground up, not using kit products. This time the result was much better, but unfortunately still not good enough. Grinding, slipping and under extrusion translated into several failed prints.
Scouring the internet for advice, he realized that the problem with bad, unreliable extrusion was universal. Everyone seemed to suffer from the same dilemma. An idea was born.
Today, Bondtech manufactures Bondtech Dual Drive extruders and other innovative 3D printing products to users and retailers across the world. Constantly improving our offer, we believe this is just the beginning.
