INCREASED DEMAND LEADS TO FUSION 3D PRINT EXPANSION

23-10-2019

GoProto is expanding its Melbourne prototyping and additive manufacturing facility, doubling its capacity for 3D printed nylon parts using HP Multi-Jet Fusion (MJF) machines. As announced in January, GoProto is the first service bureau in Asia Pacific to provide this on-demand solution.

“We’ve invested significantly in leading-edge manufacturing technology and intend to stay ahead of the competition by partnering with HP to deliver MJF 3D printed parts to the market at affordable pricing,” says Leon Gairns, General Manager of GoProto ANZ.

GoProto’s additive manufacturing technology provides access to smooth, functional IP67-rated parts. This feature is especially desirable for designs where equal strength and reliability are required along all axes and throughout the whole part.

Gairns adds: “There’s certainly been an increase in demand for complex, isotropic parts for one-off prototypes and smaller run components of 1000 units.

“We predict that this trend will continue to surge and our expansion allows for considerable growth in volume and capacity well into the future.”
