Why RP Service Bureaus Choose Objet 3D Printers — IPF ExplainsBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
Gary Miller at IPF Service Bureau in the UK explains the unique business advantages his service bureau gains from operating Objet 3D printers. The company uses the Objet Eden350V and the Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer. The Objet Connex, due to its unique multi-material jetting capability, can print different materials into the same model, and hence many different model orders on the same tray at the same time. The multi-material capability includes printing a range of rigid and rubber shores simultaneously and also a range of materials capable of simulating the strength and temperature resistance of engineering plastics. Objet 3D printers are so reliable IPF often leaves their printers running unattended for 50 hours straight over a weekend to deliver prototypes and models to their customers quickly, efficiently and consistently.
