    John Winter Goes Large Scale with Big Rep at TCT Show

    As the UK distributor of Big Rep 3D printers to the foundry industry John Winter will be teaming up with Big Rep at the TCT show in September to demonstrate the benefits of 3D printing for tooling and pattern making. Bringing the expertise of the Big Rep print team together with over half a century of supplying foundries across the globe means John Winter leads the way to bring additive manufacturing to UK foundries.

    These printers will open up possibilities for foundries and pattern makers to produce large scale patterns up to 1m³, ideal for short run jobbing patterns. But the real value in 3D print pattern and tooling is the reduction in the production timescales. Compared to traditional process, additive manufacturing can reduce production timescales from weeks or months into days. Bringing a real competitive edge to UK manufacturing with process efficiencies without affecting quality.

    “We are talking to several UK foundries about the manufacturing opportunities with 3D printing” says Adam Bennett, Sales Director at John Winter. “Foundries are all about efficiency and quality. The convenience of additive manufacturing, the speed of production and the reduction in tooling costs makes 3D printing an appealing opportunity for many UK foundries.”
