TPM opens new 3D lab

March 25, 2019

The 2D and 3D design technology provider has opened a new 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing laboratory in Charlotte, North Carolina.

TPM Inc.’s new lab will showcase the company’s latest technology from manufacturers including HP and MarkForged. After a six-month project, the lab was completed on March 1, 2019.

“With the completion of this 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Lab, TPM can now provide hands-on tours of industry leading thermoplastic, composite and metal 3D printing technologies,” said Matt Luther, TPM’s Director of 3D Printing.

The lab houses the latest HP Multi-Jet Fusion product offering as well as MarkForged MetalX and composite printers in what is described as a “highly accessible location,” close to the Charlotte International Airport, providing “easy access” to customers across the Southeast.

True to its mantra to “Never stop learning,” TPM designed the lab to educate others in the industry about the “rapidly evolving” 3D printing landscape and prepare them to integrate this technology into their business operations.

“This lab will help our customers in the Southeast explore the ways in which additive manufacturing and 3D printing can impact their business like never before,” Luther added.

The company serves more than 3,500 customers each year with technology solutions, training, consulting, and implementation services, and its partners include OEMs such as HP, Canon, and Oce.

TPM will be offering a hands-on tour of the facility during its open house on April 11, 2019, and encourages those interested to contact the company to register.
