Additive Manufacturing New 3D printer strengthens LPE’s stereolithography capabilities
UK — Stratasys announced the installation of a Neo450s 3D printer at Belfast-based service bureau LPE, bolstering its range of stereolithography 3D printing solutions for its UK and Ireland client base.
LPE provides additive manufacturing services for a range of industries including aerospace, automotive, consumer products, electronic devices and medical. Over the last 30 years, the company has continually invested in the latest technologies and materials to enhance its prototyping, production, and tooling service offering. Its latest investment is a Neo450s stereolithography 3D printer from Stratasys.
With the purchase of the Neo450s, the company expects to see immediate benefits. “Our investment in this state-of-the-art technology will increase our capacity to deliver high quality parts with extremely fast turnaround times,” says Patrick Walls, Director, LPE. “We continually strive to be at the forefront of a very fast-moving industry, so ongoing investment in innovative technologies such as the Neo450s is vital in meeting this strategic objective.”
Stratasys’ Neo line of 3D printers is based on optimal machine design and latest cutting-edge technology available for laser and scanners, enabling superior build accuracy, feature detail, and low variability across the full extent of a large build platform. As an open resin system, Neo 3D printers provide customers with materials that offer a wide range of properties — such as chemical resistance, heat tolerance, flexibility, durability, and optical clarity. The printers can produce large parts up to 800 x 800 x 600 mm, providing a significant build area in a small footprint.
The stereolithography technology further expands Stratasys’ polymer suite of solutions across the product life cycle, from concept modeling to manufacturing. The Neo line is available for the global market with an expanded set of applications.
