3D Systems On Demand

TCT September 25 - 27

Birmingham, UK

3D Systems On Demand is here to help you reach your production goals.  With our four main services; Rapid Prototyping, Functional Prototyping, Low-Volume Production and Appearance Models, On Demand Manufacturing is the custom solution you’ve been looking for. We support customer applications across a diverse range of industries, and offer services in additive and traditional manufacturing. 3D Systems digital manufacturing solutions put you in full control of the design to production process.  Let our manufacturing innovation fuel yours.

3D Systems On Demand will be at booth L24 in Hall 3 at TCT.  Visit us to see first hand to see what 3D Systems On Demand Manufacturing can do for you.

3D Systems will have two different featured speakers at TCT.  Catch Markus Kuhn's talk on how additive manufacturing can change your methodology and lower your cost on September 25th at 13:00 or Sam Green's talk on adding value with additive manufacturing on September 25th at 13:10.

Featured Speakers at TCT

  • Putting the Swirl Into Aerospace:

    3D Printing Liquid Fuel Injectors for Rockets

    September 25th, 13:00 - 13:30, Located in U50

    The SMILE (Small Innovative Launcher for Europe) is a project coordinated by the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR). The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) is responsible for developing a reusable, liquid rocket engine for small satellites in the sun-synchronous orbits. DLR is currently designing ceramic engine parts which are resistant to thermal shocks and high temperatures. DLR has also partnered with 3D Systems to print a complex injector head component. This presentation will examine how additive manufacturing changed DLR’s design methodology, lowered the production costs and reduced the overall weight of the propulsion system. The session will also review how the injector prototype was created with 3D Systems’ ProX DMP 320 metal printer and its first, hot firing tests.

    Markus Kuhn, Project Manager & Research Engineer - Smile Project DLR

    Markus Kuhn
    Markus Kuhn has a background in designing propulsion systems for hypersonic vehicles and space transportation and in developing passive and active thermal protection systems for spacecrafts. In 2003, he joined the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to lead the EC-H2020 project SMILE. Markus is responsible for advancing ceramic-based, reusable liquid rocket propulsion structures for small-sat launch vehicles. He holds a diploma in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Stuttgart in Germany.
  • Improving Each Stage of the Product Development Cycle with Dedicated Additive Manufacturing

    September 25th, 13:10 - 13:30, Located in H50

    Many well-known manufacturers have been using additive manufacturing for more than twenty years. But even so, there remain many un-touched areas where 3D printing can provide significant added-value. Additive Manufacturing technologies can drive efficiencies at virtually every step of the enterprise product development cycle – resulting in better products, delivered faster and within budget. This presentation will examine the application of 3D printing at various stages of the product development lifecycle, including design concept and ideation, RP shop, functional prototyping, low-volume investment casting, and final production and will be presented by Sam Green.  Sam Green is a Category Manager at 3D Systems.
