Rapid + tct 2017: German RepRap presents live 3D printing of silicone using the new Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) Technology
as well as the concept of a 3D printer farm printing with different materials
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, May 2017 – The RAPID + TCT Accelerating 3D Manufacturing Fair is one of the most important events when it comes to the topic of Additive Manufacturing. On this new combined event, the latest product innovations will be presented and joint learning opportunities will be offered to accelerate the acceptance and further development of the technology. The two industry leaders in 3D technology events, SME’s and Rapid News Publications Ltd. combine their almost 30 years of insights and experience to host the annual RAPID + TCT event from 2017 onwards.
German RepRap will also be present at the fair from May 8th to 11th, 2017 and help to bring the 3D printing technology into the minds of the entrepreneurs. With the absolute world novelty, the Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) technology, which makes it possible to print liquids such as silicones with a 3D printer, as well as a “printer farm” consisting of four X350 3D printers work with a wide range of materials, the company shows what is possible nowadays. “We can see a fundamental rethinking process in the minds of the entrepreneurs. More and more it is considered whether additive production can be used instead of the injection molding and milling processes. The new Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) Technology is a revolution in 3D printing and will strongly influence this rethinking in a positive sense. Actually we can say it is the beginning of a new age, since there has been no comparable technology anywhere in the world, “explains Florian Bautz, Managing Director of German RepRap GmbH.
The benefits for the users are clear: the current machines can be further used and upgraded with new technologies such as the 3D printers from German RepRap. This saves costs by reducing the amount of programming or tooling required, and the companies benefit from a high degree of flexibility and faster production.
“We are definitely changing. 3D printing will play a very important role in tomorrow’s production. In particular in the area of serial production, the technology is becoming increasingly interesting and is already being used in the automotive industry, “says Mr. Bautz.
