Quickparts, a global leader in on-demand custom parts manufacturing for 3D printing and traditional manufacturing with six global design and production centers around the world, has become a Foundation Partner with Nexa3D, the maker of professional and industrial polymer 3D printers, on Nexa3D’s Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS) platform, the QLS 820.
“We are thrilled to be the first on-demand manufacturing service provider to experience the benefits of higher throughput, thermoplastic, additive manufacturing,” said Ziad Abou, CEO of Quickparts. “We pride ourselves on offering quick-turn manufacturing services to our customers and look forward to introducing an even faster and more economical production of higher volume thermoplastic components with Nexa3D’s QLS 820.”
The QLS 820 represents powder-bed technology that combines fast printing times with open materials and a cloud software platform to deliver greater production volumes. It also offers a greater material selection for customers – giving them access to materials such as PA 12, polypropylene, PBT, aluminum, glass, fiber-filled plastics, and more. The system offers continuous production during the cooldown process, which can help eliminate bottlenecks and speed up production times.
The QLS 820 system offers faster turn times for SLS projects, higher throughput and a large build volume, greater material options, including high-temperature materials and processing, and an automation-ready, easy-to-use, technology-agnostic software platform.
“We founded Nexa3D to digitize supply chains sustainably by making polymer 3D printers affordable for professionals and businesses of all sizes,” said Avi Reichental, co-founder, and CEO of Nexa3D. “We are proud that our new QLS 820 delivers productivity gains without extensive costs and lead times.”
Earlier this month, Gogo, the world’s largest provider of broadband connectivity services for the business aviation market, turned to Quickparts for the company’s inflight Wi-Fi antenna prototyping. This decision was made after Gogo submitted their drawing to five separate 3D print suppliers – of which Quickparts was chosen thanks to its ability to print it as a single piece and paint it in the time frame required.
