New manufacturing printer launched by spin-out of King’s Award winner

Mitchell Barnes

A new UK-designed and manufactured 3D printer is set to launch at TCT 3Sixty today, having already secured £200,000 in pre-orders.

Developed by LANDR, a spin-off from RYSE 3D, the FDM printer is suitable for prototyping and production in various sectors including automotive, aerospace, and healthcare.

RYSE 3D was recently awarded the King’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category, after developing 3D printed mould tools that allow UK manufacturers to compete with low-cost overseas operations.

Creator and managing director Mitchell Barnes said: “This technology is simply not built in the UK, yet we knew we had the knowledge and technical expertise to change that notion. It has been a real labour of love, but we have now built and are using ten printers at our sister business RYSE 3D.

“With 30,000+ hours of use so far, there’s no better testing ground than a company supplying parts to 18 of the world’s Hypercars. The large build volume and print speed enable printing multiple smaller parts or large components in a single run, improving productivity in the process. It’s versatile, efficient and there will be no material lock, meaning you can use whichever material you choose with it.

“We are hugely proud to be a British manufacturer and are delighted to bring world-class additive manufacturing technology – designed and manufactured entirely in the UK – to a global audience.”
