TRI-TECH 3D MAKERBOT

Makerbot Method X

The Method X combines industry technology and Makerbot’s signature accessibility. Print complex and durable ABS parts with a 100°C heated chamber for end-use assemblies and manufacturing tools. It’s a continuation of Makerbot’s “performance” printer range, providing industrial accuracy and thermoplastic printing on the small scale of the workplace environment.

This improved heat chamber can treat materials, creating excellent layer adhesion, part strength and rigidity. This feature also ensures consistent print dimensional accuracy and prevents warping. The greater range of printing material and support material compatibility makes for fewer design restrictions, and an improved support removal time.

Leasing 3D Printers

Tri-Tech 3D provide direct rental contracts on our full range of 3D printers, which can include post processing equipment and extended warranty, making your investment into 3D printing both affordable and help plan your annual expenditure.

Funding in the most part, is provided by our sister company Stanford Marsh Finance(a division of the Stanford Marsh Group) or via our numerous strategic finance partners/brokers.

Rates are frequently checked to ensure competitiveness in the market place and you will find our terms highly attractive.  With options such as fixed term contracts, step rentals which make payments lower in the earlier years allowing time to grow the use from your new device.  Or deferred payment, enabling you to benefit from the technology ahead of when you start paying.

Why lease 3D Printers?..

Not only can leasing be financially beneficial to companies, but it can also give you the ability to remain ahead and current with technology. It also means your entry point to utilisation of a professional 3D printer is far more affordable than you may think – a professional 3D printer from as little as £299 per month, (including a wash system and 12-months support).

Furthermore, if like many companies today you are outsourcing 3D printing via a 3D Print Bureau, you are already spending an amount each month that when converted to a lease, could represents an in-house option at no extra cost (savings possibly).  Either talk to one of our team, or send us details of your average spend and we can help provide an ROI report.

In addition to our excellent rates, as an end user dealing directly with one vendor for finance, equipment and after sales care, your rental agreement will provide you with a future flexible upgrade path. We’ve enabled companies to acquire new technology prior to the completion of the minimum rental period, without the usual high termination figure charged by outside finance agencies.

All finance is subject to approval and none of the solutions detailed above are guaranteed to suit all scenarios. What we can promise however, is we will do our utmost to make the finance of your 3D Print solution as affordable and easy as possible.
