Laser Lines authorized as training centre for Stratasys’ 3D Printing Academy

Laser Lines, a supplier of 3D printing technologies based in Oxfordshire, UK, has become a certified training provider for Stratasys’ additive manufacturing academy.

Stratasys Academy offers personalized courses for new and existing users of its FDM and Polyjet 3D printers who would like to upskill themselves in additive manufacturing technologies. Richard Hoy, SLM Product Specialist at Laser Lines, said:

“The training courses are an extension of the advice and education we have been providing to customers for the past 20 years.”

“With our experienced team able to share their knowledge and experience on both the FDM and Polyjet systems and materials, customers who are trained by us will get the value of some real-life application examples.”

Laser Lines’ 3D Printing Academy

Located at its Banbury facility, Laser Lines’ 3D Printing Academy training center offers one, two, and three-day courses tailored to the trainee’s requirements. One of the courses included in the academy is the “Advanced Polyjet Training: Colour Texturing Expert”.

This 3-day course is designed to give its participants an understanding and abilities to design and 3D print full-color models using the Stratasys J750 3D printer. This system has been used by researchers at Columbia University to replicate the external and internal structure of wood. It has also been used to create a variety of 3D printed anatomical models to aid in pre-surgical procedures.

Hoy added: “We want to ensure that our customers get what they need from our training so before booking, our Stratasys academy certified trainers can discuss exact requirements and advise both content and a suitable duration for the training course so that it meets their needs entirely.”

Laser Lines & the 3D printing market

Last year, Formlabs, desktop SLA 3D printer manufacturers based in Massachusetts, announced Laser Lines as its latest distributor.

Prior to this, Laser Lines purchased its second Stratasys Fortus 450mc 3D printer to address the high demand for additive manufacturing with Nylon 12CF material in jigs, fixtures and small batch production of end-use parts. This material is also known for its tensile strength and durability.

Additionally, Additive Industries, a Netherlands-based metal 3D printing expert, recently announced Laser Lines as its distributor in UK and Ireland.
