Tasman Machinery Open House – 3D Printing in Action
Melbourne, 25 October 2012 – 3D printers and production systems in action are just some of the highlights people can expect to see at Tasman Machinery’s Open House event in Cheltenham, VIC, on Wednesday 14 November 2012. Customers and interested organisations considering a purchase of a 3D printing system are invited to Tasman’s showroom from 1pm – 5pm to learn more about Stratasys’ full product range and the advantages of Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology.
The event will feature demonstrations of the Fortus 400mc production system, the Dimension Elite 3D printer, the uprint SE print pack as well as the recently launched Mojo desktop printer. Visitors will have the opportunity to get an understanding of the Stratasys products, which range from very affordable desktop printers to full-scale production systems, suitable for the manufacture of prototypes and end-use parts.
“We are excited to have Stratasys application engineers from the U.S. at hand during the event who will be happy to talk to visitors and explain the technology on show,” says Managing Director Dermid McKinley. “Visitors will have the opportunity to learn the latest advances being made by Stratasys, the world’s leading supplier of 3D printers.
Apart from 3D printers and production systems, Tasman Machinery will showcase a smoothing station and explain sealing and bonding methods for FDM parts. Moreover, the friendly Tasman staff will explain how additive technology can be applied for full-fledged manufacturing solutions, which is referred to as additive manufacturing or direct digital manufacturing (DDM). “Increasingly, Australian companies are applying it to manufacturing applications, and with each success, they prove that it is a viable alternative,” Mr McKinley explains.
Stratasys’ compact and affordable Mojo 3D printer will also be a crowd puller, because it comes with a price tag which makes it affordable for virtually anyone. Like other 3D printers from Stratasys, the Mojo unit builds parts through FDM – a process that creates resilient plastic parts out of durable & strong ABS thermoplastic. Applications of FDM therefore extend beyond prototyping to include functional tools, fixtures and end-use parts.
Tasman Machinery looks forward to meeting everyone interested in 3D printing – drinks and nibbles will be provided.
