On the show floor both Stratasys and TRUMPF: will be using the TCT Show as a vehicle to introduce new machines to the UK. Stratasys will showcase the J750 3D Printer, the worlds’ only full-colour, multi-material 3D printer. Also on display will be the Stratasys’ Fortus 3D Printer, already a key part of the manufacturing process for many leading businesses including BMW, Airbus and Opel. TRUMPF will introduce the TruPrint 1000 3D, a compact, easy to install, true plug-and-play metal printing machine, ideal for the production of small metal components by LMF (laser metal fusion).

Olympus will exhibit the Olympus LEXT OLS4100 the industry’s first laser scanning compound microscope. Offering accuracy and repeatability, and with non-contact 3D observations this microscope effortlessly delivers measurements of surface features at 10 nanometer resolutions.  Other leading companies bringing new tech to the TCT Show include Added Scientific, launching its new software FLatt Pack; Photocentric who will display the first Liquid Crystal 3D printer, using a 40” screen; Polygonica presenting its latest software v1.4; and Sodick who will be showcasing the brand new OPM250L metal 3D printer and high speed machining centre combination.

“Providing a platform that accelerates 3D technologies has been TCT Show’s mission for two decades – even as the technologies and the show itself have evolved, the aims have remained the same. Each year TCT Show acts as a crucible for providers and users of 3D technologies; from the comprehensive show floor where visitors can see all of the latest developments to the definitive conference where state-of-the-art applications are unveiled,” said Duncan Wood, COO, Rapid News Publications Ltd.  “This 21st TCT Show is a milestone not only for the organising team but the industry as a whole, never has the future been so bright.”
