uPrint SE Plus 3D Printer

R & I Instrument and Gear Company have received (and tested) their latest piece of machinery, a 3D printer that will hasten the design and testing process. The uPrint SE Plus has a printing or build size of 203 x 203 x 152 mm (8 x 8 x 6 in.) and uses fused deposition modelling (FDM) technology to build models in thermoplastic. The 3D Printer will streamline the research and development process with the capability to print straight from a CAD drawing.

The printer will allow our research and development team to test prototypes more efficiently by cutting out the lengthy and costly machining process. 3D printing will allow R & I to develop prototype ideas faster & cheaper than ever before. Being able to 3D print a concept the same day it was designed shortens the development process from what might have been weeks to a matter of days. Another major advantage is the ability to quickly and easily test a prototype for fitment and just as quickly make any adjustments necessary. This will allow R & I to continue to excel and push the boundaries in an ever advancing industry.
