ARRK Europe, a leading product development and prototyping center, has made further investment in its Gloucester Prototyping Centre, with the installation of a new 3D Systems ProX800 stereolithography machine. ARRK’s head of Prototyping and 3D Printing Operations in Europe, Craig Vickers made the announcement which follows earlier investment at the centre this year, with the opening of a new, dedicated Metrology room.

“It has been well documented that the demand for 3D Printed components for Prototype or Low Volume Production use is expected to grow significantly in the future. Our centre in Gloucester has a long and well established history in this field, providing some of the world’s leading companies with components as part of their product development programmes.  As one of the early pioneers in Rapid Prototyping, Additive Manufacturing, or as people like to call it today – 3D Printing, this addition combined with other investments we are making globally, ensure that we are well placed to support our customers’ needs in the future,” said Vickers.

This new machine will allow ARRK to build larger, more complex SLA parts more accurately and in shorter timescales. In the last 12 months or so, the company invested heavily in Prototyping operations in Gloucester, and also in the facility in France, near Annecy, where as many as three ProX800 were installed”.

Demand for 3D Printing and low volume manufacturing across Europe has also resulted in ARRK opening a new operation in Bydgoszcz, Poland to provide additional production capacity as well as being strategically located to support ARRK’s growth in Germany and Eastern Europe. ARRK Europe’s new German Sales representatives, Stephan Pflueger and Volker Rechlin are having great success, working with many new customers, providing them with a range of services from Stereolithography, Selective Laser Sintering, Vac castings, CNC machining, Block models, Metal pressings and Rapid Tooling and Moulding service.

The ARRK Group currently has Prototyping Centers in France, Spain, Poland and the United Kingdom with Project Advisers covering these countries as well as Germany, Switzerland, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium and the Nordic regions.
