Rent a 3D printer from Tri-Tech and you’ll have access to the latest models and most flexible deals.

When you rent a 3D printer from Tri-Tech 3D, the benefits range from flexible payment to the latest technology as it arrives. Here’s how our 3D printer rental service can make additive manufacturing fit around you.

What are my options when it comes to 3D printers?

When you’re guiding your business into the world of additive manufacturing, it can seem like there are only two options: either buy a 3D printer outright or enlist a print bureau every time you need product. Depending on your setup, both options can make sense – but there’s a third way that could pay real dividends for businesses who want all the benefits of additive manufacturing combined with logistical and financial agility.

Let’s answer a few key questions about our popular 3D printer rental service.

Why should I hire a 3D printer?

“We live in a world of consumption economics,” explains Tri-Tech 3D Director Adrian Painter, “and it’s more commonplace now to pay for what we use.” The problem is, by outsourcing to a print bureau on an ad hoc basis, you’ll pay a premium and have to work within a third party’s production schedules.

When you rent a 3D printer and bring the process in-house, however, you’ll immediately cut your expenditure, while speeding up your output by creating product and prototypes at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, you won’t have to commit the upfront capital you would with a full purchase of a 3D printer – and there could even be tax benefits, depending on your company setup.

What other benefits are there to 3D printer rental?

At Tri-Tech 3D, our rental service puts a firm focus on flexibility. We recognise that all of our clients are individuals, ranging from plucky start-ups to seasonal businesses where busy periods of intensive 3D printing are followed by months of downtime. To reflect this, we offer a range of rental plans, including fixed term contracts, step rentals (so you pay less while establishing the business in early years) or deferred payments (so you can print now and pay later). “Plus, companies with seasonal impacts can choose a payment break during quiet periods,” explains Adrian, “opting to pay more when cash-flow allows.”

Which models are available through 3D printer rental?

Tri-Tech 3D is proud to offer the UK’s most comprehensive portfolio of 3D printers – and every model is available to our rental clients. According to your requirements, this can also include post-processing equipment, while we also offer ongoing maintenance, extended warranty and support as required.

Even better, as a rental customer, we’ll keep you up to speed on the latest technology and make the newest 3D printers available to you immediately, even if you’re midway through a contract. “Our rental service means that companies can keep upgraded with the latest technology,” says Adrian, “and they can scale up by simply increasing monthly payments.”

How much does it cost to rent a 3D printer?

Our 3D printer rental rates are constantly checked against the sector to ensure we’re offering you the best deals. To give you an idea of starting points, a professional 3D printer is available from as little as £299 per month (including a wash system and 12 months support).

But the smartest move is to get in touch with the Tri-Tech 3D team and let us find a 3D printer rental solution that’s built around you. Our experts can factor in everything – from your print requirements to what you currently spend on a print bureau – before quoting you for the package that makes sense for you.

From there, we’re ready to take care of everything – from delivery and installation to optional 3D printing training – and ensure that your in-house additive manufacturing programme gets off to the smoothest possible start.
