Yorkshire based innovative precision engineering company, Agemaspark, has used its latest equipment to 3D print a commemorative gift for HRH Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.
The company, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, has developed an innovative technique to improve the efficiency of a mould tool and invested in the 3D metal printing machine needed to create the tools.
Paul Stockhill, managing director at Agemaspark, said: “We are a proud Yorkshire company, based in Doncaster and we wanted to use our latest equipment to create a gift for The Queen on this momentous occasion.
“We have 3D printed a commemorative paperweight and will be delivering this to Buckingham Palace to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee.
“Showcasing innovation is extremely important to us and this is a great time to be celebrating the capabilities of UK manufacturing.
“Our 3D metal printer is enabling us to put our pioneering 3D metal printing technique into practice, resulting in major reductions in cycle times for multi-impression mould tools.
“This is a very exciting time for our company, and we are proud to be delivering a more eco-friendly and efficient process to produce plastic components from our factory in Doncaster.”
Agemaspark is pioneering this new ground-breaking process as it will offer new innovative ways to make intricate inserts that can be processed with cooling not currently possible without using expensive heat transfer materials.
