Ben Hawksworth, the CEO and founder of Hawk 3D Proto, says he was so impressed following a visit to the Italian 3D printing materials manufacturer FiberForce that he set to work immediately to become the first UK distributor for their line of premium 3D printing filament.
According to Hawksworth, an initial meeting with Francesco Berton of FiberForce during the London 3D Printshow in May 2015 left him intrigued enough to continue to expand the relationship.
“It was great to meet with a new supplier and some tests with great results with FiberForce filaments, we noticed that they were very high quality and would be a great addition to our consumable offering. The High Speed PLA is absolutely brilliant. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to print really fast and high quality at the same time,” Hawksworth says.
He adds that both the carbon fiber and ABS filaments from FiberForce have “beautiful surface finish,” and this latest brand offering is sure to meet already high customer expectations for materials and printers.
“This will most certainly become one of our premium 3D printing filament brands that we stock and supply,” Hawksworth said. “The packaging is of a very high standard too. You really sense the quality before you have even opened the box. We also found that it these filaments work perfectly with our Airwolf 3D Printer range, including the Wolfbite and Wolfbite Nano adhesion solutions, which are just fantastic as we are the European Master Distributor for them.”
“We are very glad for having the chance to start a cooperation with HAWK 3D, we’re looking forward to a profitable and positive partnership with strong bases to give the best possible to all sharp-sighted people,” Berton said.
Hawksworth says that, very shortly, Hawk 3D Proto will have stocks of PLA, ABS, High Speed PLA and Carbon Fibre filaments from FiberForce, and that those filaments are available in a wide range of colors. Hawk 3D Proto operates a state-of-the-art 3D printing showroom where customers can view and evaluate printers and these new FiberForce filaments.
You can see Hawk 3D Proto at any one of a number of industry-focused exhibitions including the TCT show, 3D Printshow in Paris and the Academies show in November.
