It's almost here, folks! Jon's Print Shop is investing in the equipment needed to create super-high-quality Silicone rubber moulds.
This is exciting for us because it not only means that we can greatly improve the quality of the products we currently manufacture - it also will allow us to offer a range of BRAND NEW products. The sky is the limit, as they say!
Primarily, the need for this improvement came about because we need to improve our ability to manufacture our replica radio spares, which often need the strength and colour range that we struggle to produce with our 3D printer.
The Ultimaker 2 Extended+ is an outstanding piece of equipment, there is no denying that, but colour and tensile strength are the two areas where 3D printing using filament lets us down. We needed to address that. Casting these parts in tough, coloured resin, is the answer to this problem.
Not only that, though - it means the addition of a great new service FOR YOU, if you have, or are thinking of starting, your own small-scale manufacturing business at home.
If you need to cast your own products from a Silicone mould, such as candles or soaps, for example, we will be able to help you get things off the ground, or improve the quality of the products you already do manufacture, without it costing you a small fortune.
Further update coming soon.
