Ogle Models invests further into additive manufacturing

A model making, industrial 3D printing and prototyping company has brought its equipment investment over the past 36 months to almost £2 million with the acquisition of a new SLA 3D printer.

The Stratasys Neo®450s machine offers outstanding part sidewall quality and accuracy over a build volume of 450 x 450 x 400 mm. This further enhances Ogle Models and Prototypes’ offering with an increased capacity and the ability to produce higher definition parts with even finer details than ever before. The addition also allows the company to offer a reduced lead time to their customers.

Phil Martin, Director at Ogle Models and Prototypes, said: “The acquisition of another market-leading 3D printer underscores Ogle’s dedication to customer satisfaction. The Stratasys Neo®450s will enable us to build prototypes, rapid tooling and master patterns with exceptional surface quality. The smaller build area, when compared to our large frame machines, allows us to offer parts with an even faster turnaround.”

Based in Letchworth, Hertfordshire, Ogle has been at the forefront of design and prototyping since its inception more than 65 years ago, and prides itself on harnessing the latest technologies and adapting its offer to cater for evolving customer requirements.

“Ogle is at the forefront of producing models, prototypes and low volume production parts, and investments such as this help us to maintain our leading market position. By increasing efficiency and making the continual improvements in quality that our clients have come to expect of Ogle, we are ensuring they return to us time and time again.”
