ARRK increases SLS capacity by a massive 70% to meet demand

With the explosion of interest in SLS components from all industry sectors ARRK is delighted to announce it has just purchased more of 3D Systems latest Hi-Q machines.

The move takes ARRK's on-site capability to 5 SLS machines and 12 SLA machines giving our customers fantastic capacity along with one of the most comprehensive material choices on offer within the industry.

Major expansion work is currently taking place at ARRK's Gloucester facility to accommodate the new machines, which will be offering both Glass Filled Nylon and Duraform PA, along with an even bigger paint shop for those requiring post SLS work. In addition to customers now being offered even shorter lead times for delivery, ARRK will be trialling new powders which offer alternative characteristics and properties to those offered by GFN and Duraform.

The whole SLS expansion is part of an ARRK Worldwide programme which has already seen ARRK Corporation in Japan making a number of machine purchases to boost its own capacity levels. Craig Vickers, Operations Director, for ARRK Gloucester, commented, "The increase in activity for SLS components is phenomenal. ARRK Gloucester alone has experienced 3 consecutive years of SLS growth and it seems to be growing even further. These new additions provide our customers with significant benefits, such as even greater flexibility, speed and choice.
