We are the 3D printing arm of a larger company called Express Group Ltd. Fixing printers since 1988, today we are a Specialist Parts Distributor and Experts in 3D Printing.
We take quality control very seriously, which is why we are audited for ISO9001:2008 certification, this helps ensure we provide great customer service.
There are a number of ways 3D printing can be incorporated into engineering and manufacturing:
Getting things injection moulded or sent over from abroad can be expensive and time consuming. Using 3D printing allows you to save money and reduce lead times. Not only does this save money, but it also allows products to be launched and innovation to take place quicker.
Sometimes manufacturers want to produce a small batch of items where their normal manufacturing method just isn't cost effective. Additive manufacturing allows you to carry out these small product runs profitably.
Whereas traditionally it can often be too expensive to add customisation to products, one of the key advantages to additive manufacturing is that complexity is free. This allows you to produce items to size, or even with built in branding, without adding to the cost of the end product.
There are a number of reasons why you would want to 3D printing replacement parts. It reduces wastage, as every part printed on demand will be used. It can also save money on certain manufacturing processed, whereas the production of a single part isn't cost effective. Finally as 3D printing is adopted more and more, the ability to 3D print replacement parts is a key selling point.
