Plastics Extrusion 3D Printing
In February of 2014 we posted some brief comments about Preferred Plastic’s interest in 3D printing and the opportunities it could bring to our customers and our industry. Well, we are pleased to announce the addition of our Makerbot Replicator Z18 3D printer that will be used to help Preferred bring your custom plastic extrusion project to life.
Our 3D printer has a massive build volume which allows us to print up to 18” long prototypes and samples on a massive 12” X 12” platform. Customers can now have hands on experience with their custom profiles during program development. This technology is a perfect fit for profile extrusion and Preferred Plastics is proud to bring these capabilities to the customers it serves.
Call Preferred Plastics today to see how 3D printing can help make your next plastic extrusion project a success.
