Paragon - Rapid - Technologies - Prototyping - Specialists
Paragon Rapid Technologies, rapid prototyping specialists and service provider based in Durham, UK, is the first in the world to receive three NEO800 3D printers from the 3D printer manufacturer, RP Support.
Reacting to the increasing demand for water-resistant, durable and clear components, the NEO800 uses SLA technology to 3D print high-caliber side wall parts with superior build definition which decreases the need for surface finishing.
Industry - Boundaries - Print - Performance - Users
“The industry is constantly pushing the boundaries of 3D print performance, with users looking for more economical ways of producing their parts and products. We’ve found that our NEO800 machines are far exceeding expectations,” said Phil Adamson, Managing Director at Paragon.
