New products set for launch at TCT Show

ORGANISERS of this year’s TCT Show have revealed a number of new products are set to launch at the event.

Almost 10,000 visitors from 80 countries are expected to attend the exhibition for additive manufacturing, 3D printing, design and engineering technology.

Visitors will be able to see performance 3D printing in action with MakerBot. The desktop 3D printing specialist’s 3D printers will be on display, including its industrial-grade 3D printer, METHOD, new PETG material, and its upcoming latest innovation.

nTopology has a new approach to product development – computational modelling – described as bridging the gap between advanced manufacturing machines and the engineering software needed to optimise designs and drive production. The firm will exhibit examples of digital designs as well as additively-manufactured/3D-printed products created using the software.

OxMet Technologies Ltd will unveil its range of nickel, titanium and aluminium alloys for additive manufacturing, while EnvisionTEC will show off the latest range of 3D printers and materials for a variety of industries. The Perfactory P4K model DLP printers utilise a true 4M pixel projector. P4K models are said to utilise this high resolution together with artificial intelligence to deliver the ‘highest accuracy and truly outstanding’ surface finish. The new Envision One printer that uses EnvisonTEC’s domeless cDLM technology will also be making an appearance.

Stratasys will host the UK debut of the recently-launched F120 3D Printer. The company will also showcase how 3D printing is making an impact within the aircraft interiors market by customising cabins, with a life-size business class pod on the stand.

TCT Show runs from September 24-26 at the NEC in Birmingham.
