New technologies, including a Nexa3D printing process, and localized manufacturing, are keys to a Quickparts offering that is said to provide greater supply chain reliability for custom parts
November 16, 2022
SEATTLE, Wash.—On-demand manufacturing provider Quickparts is offering a new service that uses cutting-edge 3D printing and traditional manufacturing processes to deliver custom parts and prototypes “as fast as same-day shipping,” the company said in a release.
Quickparts revealed details of the offering, along with live demonstrations, at Formnext 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany, in November.
The Quickparts Express service uses localized manufacturing in the U.S. and Europe to offer greater supply chain reliability for 3D printed, CNC machined, and injection molded custom parts. According to Quickparts, the service was made possible by its adoption of new manufacturing technologies, including Nexa3D’s Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing® (LSPc®) 3D printing technology, and innovative CNC and injection molding technology.
Quickparts CEO Ziad Abou said that Quickparts Express “reflects the company’s commitment to continuous innovation and customer service.”
“We pride ourselves on technology that helps our customers with all their projects, large and small,” Abou said in the release. “We’ve been working closely with Nexa3D and have adopted their industrial and desktop 3D printers, using the ultrafast LSPc 3D printing process to help meet our customers’ needs for quicker turn times and uncompromised part quality.”
Nexa3D makes polymer 3D printers that it describes as “ultrafast” and capable of delivering up to 20x productivity gains. The company’s partnerships with world-class material suppliers and its open materials platform are said to unlock the full potential of additively manufactured polymers for volume production.
“Nexa3D was founded on the premise of digitizing supply chains sustainably by making ultrafast polymer 3D printers accessible to professionals and businesses of all sizes,” said Nina Swienton, chief marketing officer at Nexa3D, in the release. “We are thrilled to partner with Quickparts to further expand access to our industry-leading technology and at the same time deliver 3D printing services faster than ever before.”
Launched first in the U.S. in late 2022, Quickparts Express is scheduled to begin in Europe in early 2023.
