We are always on the lookout for new technologies that could enhance our manufacturing capabilities, and provide a greater range of options for people living with disabilities.
We’re inspired by the ways additive manufacturing (aka 3D printing) is being utilised around the world to create a greater level of product personalisation for everyone; everything from bionic limbs and prosthetics to custom walking stick handles and grips.
Currently we are investing in 3D printing and building our expertise because it means we can test concepts quickly, build jigs and fixtures quicker, introduce new manufacturing processes and offer quicker adaptations and personalisations to some of our custom designs. DEMAND uses both a Cube pro and a Lulzbot Mini.
Recently, we’ve installed a CNC router at our Abbots Langley workshops to help us with our batch production work. Turning custom creations into more widely available products has just become a lot easier.
