As 3D printing continues to disrupt product development and manufacturing processes (as well as to inspire makers and students), FELIXprinters is uniquely sensitive to the requirements these changes demand and provides high-quality 3D printing products and comprehensive support services to meet them.
FELIXprinters has a strong heritage in 3D printing with a precision technology focus. The company’s range of 3D printers and ancillary products and services provide a wide range of capabilities and offer many options for companies embracing and looking to embrace 3D printing into their workflows.
Recognizing the shift in the shape of the 3D printing industry, FELIXprinters is now repositioning itself and its portfolio of products to cater for the changing needs of industry constituents.
A dominant feature of the FELIXprinters range of 3D printers is its Pro series of machines, developed specifically to meet the demands of industry users. Industry today is embracing 3D printing to achieve critical business goals such as increased innovation in product design and development, reduction in time from design to market, and cost-effective prototyping and production. The Pro series from FELIXprinters provides top-end, highly-reliable, and powerful 3D printing solutions for industry users, and sets itself apart from other technology providers by the extent of the relationship that it encourages with its customers.
According to Guillaume Feliksdal, Founder and Director of FELIXprinters: “This is a deliberate strategy founded on the belief that our customers, whatever their size or shape, get the best from their use of our 3D printing technologies, when we work with them directly and become a strategic partner and advisor for them. We work closely with all our industrial customers to ensure that the use of the technology is optimised for each individual application.”
For any organization involved in product development, manufacturing, and research, an agile approach is fundamental. The FELIX Pro series is a key enabler of this, the Pro series printers having been specifically designed and developed to meet the needs of professional users with superior levels of functionality, reliability, and ease-of-use The Pro series in this way provides engineering solutions for a wide range of prototyping and low volume production applications.
These high quality products are offered together with unprecedented support services from FELIXprinter’s highly trained and motivated engineers and technicians. By working directly with clients to achieve the best possible outcomes from their 3D printers for dedicated applications, FELIXprinters has establishing itself as a trusted and highly robust brand.
However, while reliability runs through every fibre of the company, the rapid development of desktop 3D printing in the last decade has made it much more accessible in terms of costs and ease-of-use, and not every 3D printer user is industrially focused. This is evident in a number of areas where 3D printing continues to be readily adopted such as in schools and universities and among a number of individuals that constitute the Maker Movement — a global community that is growing in numbers and which embraces the philosophies of making, learning, and sharing.
As Industry 4.0 continues to become embedded across many sectors, digital 3D technologies are increasingly important for cross curricula learning, particularly across the STEAM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Maths, in a way that will fill the current skills gap out in the real world.
The importance of embracing 3D technologies, including 3D printing, is vital and this means a hands-on learning approach with the technology. With its robust and versatile TEC series, FELIXprinters works closely with schools, colleges and universities to provide 3D printers that are ideally suited to demonstrate the functionality and versatility of 3D printing for a wide range of applications that are relevant to students and next generation engineers.
