TRIPODMAKER EXHIBITED AT AM EUROPE 2016

Tripodmaker AM europe 2016

28-30 JUNE AT RAI AMSTERDAM

The first edition of Additive Manufacturing Europe took place on the 28-30 June at RAI Amsterdam, one of the best-connected exhibition centers in Europe. This pan-European show covered all business applications for 3D printing, from prototyping to manufacturing. 

The conference program featured some of the most prominent names in the 3D printing/ additive manufacturing sector alongside a wide range of case studies focused on different sectors – healthcare (28 June), aerospace (29 June) and automotive (30 June). Tripodmaker could not miss this exciting opportunity to exhibit its solutions and share its expertise.

This is the business-to-business show for the 3D printing industry with products, launches and live demonstrations. It is the best way to see all the options together in one place.

FILAMENT LINE LAUNCH

Spectra PLA

Spectra PLA is a tough, easy to use high grade PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) type of filament, ideal for 3D printing. It is slightly modified and this makes our PLA tougher and less brittle. PLA has a low shrinkage factor and will not deform after cooling. This material is a biodegradable plastic made from renewable natural resources and one of the most popular materials for 3D printing.

Spectra filament

Spectra X-ABS

Spectra X-ABS is a next-generation ABS filament. Zero warp technology implemented onto the ABS, creats a filament with far less cracking, proven near perfect interlayers, reliable bed adhesion (tape & other adhesives) while improving the mechanical properties making X-ABS extra strong. It is the ultimate ABS replacement that prints strong and beautiful parts on any FDM 3D printer without the common headaches associated with regular ABS like warping & horrible bed adhesion. X-ABS is the perfect material for strong objects that require an high impact tolerance.

THREE FAIRS DURING OCTOBER: PARIS - BRUSSELS - KORTRIJK

10//09/2015

In the next few months, we will be attending three fairs, and we might have some little (or big) surprise for you. But more on that later this month with some more detailed updates.

 

3DPRINTSHOW - LOUVRE - PARIS/FRANCE
16-17 OCTOBER

Boot: DS-12

3D printing and additive manufacturing displayed spectacular growth and development. In this sector , the 3D Printshow platform opens up to the most advanced technologies, the most sharpened minds and most innovative applications of additive techniques. This is a great place to explore future technologies that everyone is talking about.

At 3D Printshow, you will have also the posibility to join several conferences. Looking forward to meet you there!

We are dedicated to produce our devices with the greatest care and highest quality by working together with a Belgian assembly company, using Belgian tailor-made metal parts. Going from prototype to final design, we worked together with designers and skilled technicians to obtain to best end-result.

3DP EUROPE - TOUR AND TAXIS - BRUSSEL/BELGIUM
18-19 OCTOBER

3DPeurope is an international platform for businesses, government and NGOs, associations, retailers and resellers, artists and designers, engineers, educational institutes and everyone curious about the practical use of 3D printing. It is unique worldwide with its innovative show concept and Europe's first truly commercially and practically focused 3D Print event. Also, it will be the first 3D Printing show in Belgium, the center of Europe.

See you there?

PROTO TYPING - XPO KORTRIJK/BELGIUM
28-29 OCTOBER

Boot: 666
PROTOTYPING 2015 aims to be a platform bringing together everyone in the prototyping industry, including both creative and manufacturing activities. It is a sharply focused practical trade event for everyone involved in product development, prototyping and low-volume manufacturing.  It is a platform for all the players in the prototyping value chain, from the initial idea to low-volume production, and this is what makes it different from other trade events. This unique networking event will also present top-level seminars and other valuable fringe events.

OUR BELGIAN RESELLERS.

Initially, we started in Belgium with our first resellers: With Trideus as our first one, quickly followed by Techswap, and 3D Futura. We are convinced we have a solid base in our home country to support our existing community of devices. We are very happy we got the opportunity to prove ourselves in this super exciting market!

ACROSS THE SEA.

In order to get access to the UK market, we started a trial project with Fablab Essex / Mousetrap Innovastion. We met Iain at TCT show. He’s a great guy and is really into everything what concerns Fablabs and hackspaces. 

UNDER THE SEA*.

With Makeproint, we date way back. At the first Rapidpro event Tripodmaker attended in Eindhoven, we got in touch. However, it took us quite some time to get a test device across the Dutch border so we only started reselling in the Netherlands as of several months ago.

* Parts of the Netherlands lay beneath sea level 😉

POWERED BY: ODOO

NOW ALSO CREATING THE FRONT END

Some time  ago, we explained we moved on to Odoo for our content management system. Odoo is a powerfull system that manages stock levels and holds together our webshop. Well, we finaly got it going and now, we also use Odoo for our website. Feel free to give some feedback at any time. We hope you like the new layout =)

ALIVE AND KICKING

img_0062

It has been a while since my latest blog post, and recently, I have been receiving several e-mails to ask wether or not we are dead – but we are alive and kicking =)

PRODUCTION

We have attended TCT, since then, it has been a rollercoaster.

We moved to a new and bigger space to suit the needs of our bigger production demand. We are now based in Antwerp, before it was Brussels. We are looking for even a bigger spot to house more stock. Streamlining this new set-up was a bit a pain in the *ss. We moved our complete order and manufacturing system to Odoo8, formerly called OpenERP. This took about 3 weeks to get it fully implemented and operational. Now we have a better stock system and have more insight in what we have and don’t have in stock, easier to maintain, easier to order new parts.

THE PRODUCT…

At TCT, we brought our latest version of the Tripodmaker, upgraded with the magnetic rods. This means smoother moves and higher accuracy. We will be also presenting the same machine at RapidPro in Veldhoven next week. We will be on the spot of Trideus, on of our resellers here in Belgium.

… AND ITS UPDATES

We are having an upgrade ready for the current users who have bought their single nozzle Tripodmaker in the past. As we are using the quality e3d-hotend, we adjusted our new design to fit their latest creation. We currently estimate to have the dual nozzle option ready begin summer, so keep posted. Allot to come.

Looking forward to see you all at Veldhoven!

Have a nice weekend!
