MTC enhances 3-D printing capabilityThe Coventry-based Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) — part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, supported by Innovate UK — has become the UK’s first ‘centre’ to install HP’s latest 3-D printer, the Jet Fusion 4200.

Supplied by Europac 3D, this machine will be housed in the MTC’s National Centre for Additive Manufacturing, which recently agreed to be the benchmarking centre for the European Space Agency.

Chris Ryall, operations manager (additive manufacturing) at the MTC, said: “It is evident that the new HP Jet Fusion
machines are set to revolutionise the 3-D printing market and bring real benefits to users. By housing one of the printers here at the National Centre, we can open the use of it to industry.”

John Beckett, managing director of Europac 3D, added: “We could think of no better place to install the first machine than at the MTC, which is at the forefront of manufacturing technology and provides an ideal location for organisations to see the machines and examine how they can be applied to reduce costs or improve production speeds.”

The MTC and Europac 3D staged a successful industry Open Day on 13 July, which attracted representatives from a number of high-profile organisations.
