3D printing laboratory

The 3D print laboratory is a modern research facility for product development and manufacturing methodology, and a place where you can easily turn your ideas into reality. The lab is equipped with printers for many different materials. Some examples are plastic, metal, plaster and foodstuffs.

3D printing is a sustainable and cost-effective production method where you are left with very little waste material, as only the material needed is used in the process. 

The applications of 3D printing are many: quick and easy prototyping, and complex parts created in one piece. Blueprints can be sent digitally, and spare parts printed on site instead of being shipped around the world. 

3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing.
