Today, 3D printing solutions provider Essentium, Inc. has announced that it will be partnering with GoPrint3D in order to increase the adoption of its industrial-scale AM technology in Ireland and the UK. GoPrint3D, a UK reseller now specializing in 3D printing for manufacturing , will now resell Essentium’s High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D Printing Platform in the Irish and UK markets.
“We’re excited to bring the Essentium HSE 3D Printing Platform to the UK and Irish markets. We know there is pent up demand for economically viable AM solutions that deliver industrial-scale without compromise. Together with our unique approach to providing tailored training, engineering services, maintenance contracts and fast response times, we believe this partnership will help our UK and Irish customers across aerospace, automotive, consumer good, electronics, contract manufacturing, oil & gas, and industrial equipment (tooling) sectors unlock the enormous benefits of AM at scale,” said James Blackburn, Sales Director, GoPrint3D.
3D printing is definitely being adopted in more production processes around the world, but a lot of the manufacturing in Ireland and the UK is still completed by traditional CNC machining, due to economics, speed, and scale limitations. But by combining Essentium’s rapid 3D printing with GoPrint3D’s excellent customer knowledge, service, and support, this adoption of industrial-scale AM can ramp up.
Both GoPrint3D and Essentium have been busy as of late, with GoPrint3D working on a joint Innovate UK project and Texas-based Essentium closing an investment round and partnering with Vorum on 3D printed orthotics and prosthetics. By joining forces with each other now, these two companies will be able to offer customers in Ireland and the UK a 3D printing platform that’s able to fabricate end-use parts at a far faster and more accurate pace for a more economic price.
“Despite the important potential of industrial-scale AM, many UK and Irish companies lack the know-how, resources and confidence to adopt the technology as an integral part of their manufacturing process,” stated Cyprien Decouty, Channel Sales Manager with Essentium EMEA. “Together with GoPrint3D we will smash through these barriers to help manufacturers achieve far reaching economic, innovation and competitive advantage through AM at scale. We are thrilled to partner with GoPrint3D, who has a phenomenal track record of providing the best-in-class training, application engineering and support.”
Back in November of 2018, Essentium CEO Blake Teipel told us that the company’s HSE platform “is as strong, fast, and scalable as traditional manufacturing,” featuring a fast-heating nozzle and no belts or pulleys to slow things down – perfect for industrial customers. GoPrint3D will now be offering the complete production-ready HSE 180•S Series, which includes the standard, low, and high temperature 3D printer models, along with a full range of Essentium’s 3D printing materials that are able to hold up well under demanding manufacturing environments. The company will be helping customers quickly shift to industrial-scale AM, and away from prototyping, by providing the necessary planning, installation, training, and support.
