The Digital Manufacturing Centre (DMC) based in Silverstone, UK has increased its digital production facility by adding Stratasys Neo SLA 3D printers to its engineering solutions-focussed cohort.
Boasting a wide variety of AM systems and materials, through to finishing and inspection services, the DMC has been designed from the ground up for full digital traceability throughout the production process through its 2,000-square metre facility, which has been developed alongside several industry-leading technical partners.
New Stratasys Neo800 and Neo450s AM systems have been added to the Stratasys offering on the site, which already includes a H-Series H350, FDM F770 and and DyeMansion post-processing workflow.
With its large 800 x 800 x 600mm build platform, users can create large parts on the Neo800 with the system’s two-Watt laser with dynamic beam shape control allowing for maximum productivity and quality. Currently, the Neo800 is running with Somos PerForm Reflect, a ceramic-loaded resin used for wind tunnel models and tooling applications.”
Mark Tyrtania at Laser Lines, the reseller and installer of all the DMC Stratasys 3D printers, said: “The Stratasys Neo800 is a dependable, high-performance machine used in industries as diverse as Formula One, service bureaus, universities and automotive environments.
“To be able to demonstrate this capability in a live production environment and show the results to new and existing customers is a great resource.”
The DMC is part-funded by the South East Midlands Local Growth Fund and led in conjunction with engineering consultancy KW Special Projects.
