Dates: 9th-13th April 2018
Venue: NEC, Birmingham
Stand: 750, Hall 6
In case you’ve never heard of MACH, it’s the biggest manufacturing technology exhibition in the UK. It’s held every 2 years, apparently they have to hold it at the NEC as it’s the only place in the UK that can handle the electricity requirements!
We first exhibited at MACH in 2016, we’ve got a lot of new technology since then! Here’s a little sneak preview of what we’re bringing this year:
From Markforged, as per 2016 we will be bringing a Mark Two (now printing with new Onyx), but we will also be exhibiting the Markforged X7 – larger than the Mark Two, it also has an inspection laser for greater accuracy as well as a better layer resolution of 50 microns. We will also have some Metal X parts on the stand to show off if you think metal 3D printing might be your thing.
In 2016 we had the Form 2 from Formlabs. Now we also have the Form Cure, Form Wash, a range of new Engineering Resins, the Colour Kit and the new LT tanks. So if you were considering the Form 2 in 2016 then it’s definitely worth another look now they have the complete ecosystem with the Cure and Wash units.
Two years ago at MACH we had the 3DP1000 printing at part over the 5 days. Two years on and we now have the 3DP WorkSeries with the entry level 3DP WorkTable printing on the stand, but with speeds and print volumes increasing with the 3DP Workbench Classic, Pro and Xtreme at the top of the range.
Back in 2016 we exhibited the Zortrax M200, this time we are taking the Zortrax M300, which is essentially a larger version of the M200. It’s reliable, it has a good range of materials and has a reasonably large build size – bridging the gap between your standard desktop FFF 3D printer and large format 3D printers such as 3D Platform.
We’ll also be bringing the Ultimaker 3 along to MACH 2018. This 3D printer has dual nozzles allowing you to 3D print using a dissolvable support material, ensuring your prints have a clean finish with minimal time spent removing support material. Alternatively you can print in two different materials/colours instead.
The show runs from the 9th to the 13th April at the NEC, Birmingham. It’s a great opportunity to see our 3D printers in action and meet our team face to face. The GoPrint3D stand is in hall 5, stand 750, we hope to see you there!
