Manufacturer of the large-format industrial 3D printer, 3DP Unlimited, becomes 3D Platform (3DP). When announcing their new name, the company’s management team also updated industry partners on their next phase of investment and growth strategy.
With a build area of 1 m x 1 m x 0.5 m, 3D Platform offers a large platform to create objects with a print layer resolution of down to 70 microns using FDM technology. A wide variety of open market materials such as flexible, electrically conductive, bronze-, wood- and carbon-filled filaments can be processed.
Using 3DP, full-scale prototypes as well as mass-production end-use parts can be printed.
3DP is increasing its investment to create additional manufacturing capabilities, expand its global reach and distribution network, increase its industry partnerships and hire additional business development personnel to broaden its global channel sales, service and support coverage. “We are pleased with 3DP’s early performance in the growing large-format market and are now increasing our investment in the next-generation of technology, products, partners and people“, said Bob Schroeder, CEO of 3DP.
As a supporter of open-market technologies utilized for production, prototype and design applications, 3DP and its partners have invested in applications which cater to a wide-range of industries, including manufacturing, industrial equipment, aerospace, architecture, construction, retail, furniture, apparel and education. Through its Platform Leasing Program, the company is making it easier for any organization to secure their 3DP equipment at a low monthly cost.
3DP will showcase their large-scale printer a the TCT Show in Birmingham next week.
