3D printing ‘pop-up’ heads for the capital
London’s product designers and manufacturers are to be given a unique opportunity to discover 3D printing technology that could revolutionise the way they work.
Engineers from SYS Systems have revealed plans for a free 3D printing ‘pop-up’ event at the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), overlooking Hyde Park, between 10am and 5pm on March 6, 7 and 8.
As the UK platinum partner for Stratasys, SYS Systems supplies its full range of world-leading 3D printing machines, products and software across sectors such as automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, healthcare and education, including to household names like Speedo, McLaren Racing and Jaguar Land Rover.
Investing in an on-site 3D printing solution not only enables the rapid prototyping of end-standard products, but reduces the need for tooling and outsourcing, shortening lead times, reducing waste and saving companies time and money.
Rob Thompson, Sales Manager at Derbyshire-based SYS Systems, said: “Huge advancements have been made in 3D printing in recent years and more and more businesses are realising that it can hugely improve the way they operate.
“However, there are many more out there who have not yet discovered its potential and we’re aiming to reach out through our informal pop-up event.
“It will operate on a drop-in basis, with several one-hour application seminars each day, and represents a perfect opportunity for people to find out from industry experts how the latest 3D printing technology might help them.”
Visitors to the MTA will be able to see the Stratasys Objet30 Pro in action, a desktop system ideal for accurate and versatile consumer goods prototyping.
Its offering includes a choice of eight various 3D printing materials, including clear, high-temperature and simulated polypropylene, and boasts the industry’s best print resolution to create realistic models quickly and easily.
A Stratasys representative will also be on hand, with complimentary refreshments available.
Application sessions will run between:
10.30am – 11.30am
12.30pm – 1.30pm
2.30pm – 3.30pm
These will run on each day, with people free to come and go as they please in between.
Mr Thompson added: “What really makes SYS stand out from the crowd is the vast array or material capabilities our product range can offer to allow the printing of top-quality, highly accurate and ultra-realistic prototypes and parts.
“It doesn’t matter whether you’re a small studio needing to visualise and hone your next design, or a multi-national manufacturer tasked with perfecting your next product launch, come along to the London 3D printing pop-up show and challenge us – our mission is to find a solution that works for you.”
