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 ISO9001:2015 certification, this helps ensure we provide great customer service.
Zortrax is a brand renowned for reliable, efficient 3D printers. Their story started on Kickstarter and their first 3D printer, the M200, is one of the best on the market for business and educational environments.

Zortrax Z-PHA is a 100% biodegradable filament that’s stronger and more durable than standard PLA. It prints relatively quickly and is available in black, white, grey, yellow, blue, green and red to suit most projects.
Z-PHA is a polyhydroxyalkanoate bioplastic. It’s grown in labs under controlled conditions using bacteria. The result is a carefully engineered bioplastic that’s strong and durable with eco-friendly characteristics beyond regular plastic.
3D printing with this material requires only the same time as PLA. Z-PHA produces precise, dimensionally-accurate models and prototypes. It has very low shrinkage - even lower than PLA - with good mechanical properties. It’s harder than PLA and even stronger making it less susceptible to impact damage.
Potential applications include biodegradable parts, mock-ups, exhibition models and functional prototypes in certain environments. Z-PHA is not recommended for high-temp environments, nor is it particularly resistant to chemicals, greases and oils. It is best used in stable environments, such as architecture studios.
Z-PHA is supported by the Zortrax M200 Plus and M300 Plus 3D printers. It can be used as a replacement for PLA to create strong parts that are still biodegradable. In a suitable industrial composting system, it composts within 3-6 months, around the same time as PLA.
Founded in 2013, Poland-based 3D printer manufacturer Zortrax boast some of the most popular fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printers on the market.
Zortrax printers are trusted high-performance machines, with the Zortrax brand known the world over for the quality of their hardware and their unique filaments, which are proprietary but offer limitless applications beyond regular ABS and PLA.
Zortrax 3D printers are used within automotive, architecture, engineering and medicine, where the need for good dimensional accuracy and consistency is high. The current range of 3D printers from Zortrax include the M200 and the Inventure. The M200 offers a spacious 200 x 200 x 180 mm build volume with a resolution of 90-400 microns. The Inventure offers the same layer resolution, but a smaller build volume of 140 x 140 x 140 mm.
The Zortrax ecosystem is one of the most special of any, and testament to this is the amazing range of material options. For the M200, Zortrax has developed no less than six unique filaments to cover applications where cost, elasticity, strength, durability, transparency and quality is of paramount importance. All Zortrax printers offer low operating costs and come in at a reasonable price, making them among the best in terms of return on investment.
