Bullivant invests in 3D printing to drive innovation

Roger Bullivant has said that its recent investment in 3D printers is helping to improve levels of innovation within the business.

The company has said that it is using the printing technology to create scaled prototypes of product as a cost-effective way of trialling research and development projects.

“Producing a prototype via traditional fabrication techniques can cost a lot of time and money and minor changes to a mould or tooling can be extremely expensive,” said Roger Bullivant digital design project engineer Joe Bayley.

“The main benefit of the 3D printer is that you can print a few pieces at low cost to test out your concept and iron out any design errors before committing your final design to mass production. 3D printing therefore eliminates most of the financial risk involved in this process.”
