TR Fastenings invests in 3D printing

The 3D printer, which is based at the company’s headquarters in East Sussex, will use molten plastic to produce the prototypes, enabling customers to see what a particular part might look like before they commit to ordering a large quantity.

TR Fastenings’ core business is aimed at being the principle provider of assembly components to a fast-growing range of high-volume multinational OEMs.

With more than 90 per cent of the company’s revenue deriving from non-standard components to customer specification, engineering product development is a key group activity, often demanding design and pre-production component prototyping.
