Leading Sheffield-based additive manufacturing (AM) consultancy and Medilink member, Addition Design, has expanded its range of services with the installation of an industrial AM machine for the batch production of components in a variety of high-grade engineering polymers.
The Prodways ProMaker P1000, housed within a dedicated production suite at the Sheffield-based consultancy’s facility, is one of only a handful of such machines installed in the UK and will enable the company to support high value pharmaceutical manufacturers in the scaling up and quality production of their industrial 3D printed components quickly and efficiently.
The new manufacturing capability complements Addition Design’s existing consultancy, design and training services to provide a complete one-stop shop to help companies realise the benefits of additive manufacturing.
Ben Smith, Addition Design's AM Development Engineer, commented: “AM can deliver significant added-value to many businesses in terms of cost and waste reductions and profitability improvements. Our ability to manufacture and supply AM components in engineering polymers such as nylon, glass and carbon fibre reinforced nylon, polypropylene and thermoplastic elastomers, enables us to support customers in getting the best out of the technology, providing a notable return on investment and boosting their bottom line.”
