by Paul Fanning

Industrial 3D printing expert RPS has partnered with 3DWIT to demo the flagship RPS NEO800, a world-class large-format stereolithography system.

3DWIT is Ireland’s only dedicated centre for 3D printing and hands-on training and is based in the Waterford Institute of Technology.3DWIT offers support and education to industry in the high potential and fast growing field of Additive Manufacturing.This week, 3DWIT has hosted technical open days with RPS and DSM, inviting companies to learn about the capabilities of the NEO800 and DSM resins for the medical sector.

Mike Kelly, Centre Manager at 3DWIT comments; “As part of our remit to raise awareness of Additive Manufacturing technology, we are delighted to welcome both RPS and DSM to our Waterford based AM Lab. The delivery of successful applications in AM is dependant on the 3D Print platform working in harmony with the latest generation materials. This week has been a great opportunity for 3DWIT to showcase the NEO800 SLA platform along with DSM’s leading SLA materials.”

David Storey, director at RPS comments; “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to showcase the NEO800 and specifically its use within the medical sector.”

“Medical devices such as surgical guides require full manufacturing process traceability, from the raw materials being utilised, the printing process, and finally the post processing of the printed parts. This traceability is completely supported by the NEO800 through its comprehensive build parameter recording software which allows exporting of data files in csv format.”

“The NEO800 complies with the latest Industry 4.0 manufacturing data exchange and facilitates integration of real time processing for smart factory monitoring”.

“The NEO800 is renowned for its reliability and has exceptional layer-to-layer scanning repeatability, producing parts with industry-leading sidewall quality.Dynamic laser focusing enables the production of highly accurate and detailed parts which in turn lends itself perfectly to the bespoke need of the medical industry.”

“RPS is moving into an exciting phase and we are committed to taking our state-of-the-art technology to new markets, we are very optimistic about what the future holds."

The NEO800 is available for demos at 3DWIT from 18th of February 2020 to 25th of March 2020.To book an appointment please contact Mike Kelly (mkellythreed@wit.ie) or Paul Quinn (pquinnthreed@wit.ie) at 3DWIT +353 (051)306361.
