Partnering with CAD reseller New Technology CADCAM to help Industrial Designers
Peter Smith, technical sales engineer from Laser Lines’ Design Engineering team was our man on the spot. He says: “it’s been great to be involved with the events and we have had a lot of interest in the Mojo printer that we have running on the stand. I would say the split between designers looking at 3D printing to create prototypes and those looking to see how it can assist with manufacturing is about 50:50.”
“At Thursday’s event at the Magna Centre, we’ve been explaining about the industrial grade materials that can be used for rapid tooling to the industrial designers. Ultem as a material means parts can be made that can be used immediately in industry, as it offers outstanding elevated thermal and broad chemical resistance, high strength and stiffness.”
Ultem is available in transparent and opaque custom colours, as well as glass filled grades. Ultem copolymers are available for even higher heat, chemical and elasticity needs.
Peter added: “A lot of the people we have had at the stand already use a 3D printer but are now looking at what can be outsourced. Because we have the ability to 3D print Ultem materials on the Fortus machines in our bureau, we’ve had a lot of interest in how we can be a supporting partner for low production runs or when a customer needs some extra support for over-capacity.”
“We’ve also spoken to a lot of people who are looking to upgrade to a larger machine, so it’s been great to explain more about our trade in and trade up scheme.”
