Industrial-scale AM ​​on display at the Digital Manufacturing Center

Following the installation of a suite of products at the Digital Manufacturing Center (DMC) in Silverstone, Laser Lines, the UK reseller of 3D printers and materials, hosted the first of three open days for manufacturers to see the improved live production environment.

The event, which organizers say was a huge success, included in-depth sessions on the new additive manufacturing technologies on display, as well as a tour of the facilities, refreshments and a free lunch.

Stratasys product specialists spoke in sessions about industrial applications of stereolithography, as well as how SAF technology on the new H350 can save time and money. There were also sessions on the DyeMansion post-processing workflow for an end-to-end additive manufacturing solution and the Stratasys Origin One P3 machine.

Mark Tyrtania, Director of Sales at Laser Lines, said: “We are delighted with how our first event at DMC went. The DMC is a fantastic environment to show off what the machines are capable of and the feedback from attendees has been really positive. We were delighted that so many product experts were able to join us for demonstrations and answering customer questions. We still have two sessions scheduled and we recommend that you book your space quickly, so you don’t miss a thing.
