3DPRINTUK to promote its versatile service at TCT 3SixtyLondon-based 3DPRINTUK, a leading specialist in low-volume polymer part production using 3-D printing, is exhibiting at TCT 3Sixty (Stand B65) taking place at the NEC, Birmingham from 8-9 June.

During the last decade, the company has established itself as a leading provider of 3-D printed polymer parts using powder bed fusion (PBF) processes, specifically SLS and MJF, and members of the 3DPRINTUK team will be on hand at the event to discuss ways in which 3-D printing can be used as a viable production process for a variety of applications.

Nick Allen, 3DPRINTUK managing director, said: “We will be at TCT 3Sixty once again demonstrating to visitors how we have refined our internal processes to ensure that we retain our number one status in the UK for the manufacture of prototype and production parts using 3-D printing.

“From our front-end automated on-line ordering system, through the use of 3-D printing technologies to make parts, and then onto a full range of post-processing technologies, we have invested in best-in-class solutions, which when combined with our unrivalled in-house expertise mean that our customers get the highest quality parts cost-effectively and in a timely fashion.”

At the vanguard of 3-D printing

3DPRINTUK is working at the vanguard of the 3-D printing sector, and is routinely proving the viability of PBF 3-D printing technologies for production quantities of plastic parts and components.

Visitors at TCT 3Sixty will be able to see examples of parts made using various materials and having been finished with a variety of post-processing technologies on the company’s stand. 3DPRINTUK is also inviting visitors to bring along details of specific applications so that it can assess how 3-D printing can be beneficial in terms of time-to-market and cost-competitiveness.

Mr Allen continued: “When exhibiting at events like TCT 3Sixty, we have a valuable opportunity to show just how versatile and compelling 3-D printing is as a prototyping and production technology.

“For production, 3-D printing exhibits a number of advantages when compared to legacy processes such as injection moulding, perhaps the most important being the added flexibility it allows in design. Components can be 3-D printed with a a geometric complexity either impossible or disproportionately expensive to achieve using injection moulding, stimulating innovation and allowing design engineers to continually push the envelope.”

The company operates from a 10,000ft2 base in London, which houses a growing fleet of SLS and MJF machines, as well as vibro polishing, shot peening, and colour dyeing services. 3DPRINTUK is renowned as a leading expert in the use of PBF 3-D printing technologies for prototype and small- to medium-size production runs.
