Ogle Models & Prototypes, a global service bureau provider based in Hertfordshire, UK, has further invested in RPS’ NEO800, now owning two of RPS’ stereolithography 3D printers in less than a year.

Providing a range of model-making and prototyping services, Ogle benefits from the British manufactured NEO800’s 800 x 800 x 600 mm platform when producing larger builds.  The NEO800  also produces parts with higher accuracy and smoother finish without the need for post processing, contributing to greater time savings.

Ogle’s Managing Director Len Martin said: “We felt adding another large frame 3D printing machine would help improve our turnaround times for larger models and prototypes within tighter timescales.

“With the latest improvements in SLA technology including vastly improved materials with greater accuracy and durability, we firmly believe that, for us, the SLA process still offers the ultimate 3D printed prototype solution, which is why we have decided to further invest in the technology compared to the other 3D technologies which we continue to run in house.

“The SLA process has proven over the last two decades to deliver exceptional results when managed by our expert model makers. We’re proud of our reputation for delivering SLA 3D printed parts with superior surface finishes and ultimate part precision and accuracy.

“This process, combined with other in-house capabilities, means we can provide a service that allows for greater capacity, more speed and increased accuracy.”
