Presentation Media, Inc. Expands 3D Additive Manufacturing Capacity, Launches New DEPTH Division and Announces Addition of 3D Systems ProJet 3510

Presentation Media, Inc. launches new DEPTH service bureau devoted to B-to-B modeling, rapid prototyping and product development. DEPTH brings 3D to the Marketing Department.

Gardena, CA January 21, 2015


Presentation Media, Inc. (PMI) announced today that it has launched DEPTH, a 3D Additive Manufacturing Service Bureau, to complement its comprehensive array of graphics products and services. PMI entered the 3D Additive Manufacturing business in 2007, and serves primarily aerospace and other hi-tech industries with rapid prototyping and modeling services. Due to unprecedented customer interest and demand, PMI now offers its 3D imaging capabilities to the advertising specialty, corporate graphics and events management industries.

The company's latest equipment addition is the 3D Systems ProJet 3510 Professional 3D Printer, which will manufacture objects up to 11.75" x 7.3" x 8" and is designed specifically for models, high definition patterns and precision casting. A high-resolution scanning device allows system portability and enables the company to capture images at client sites, while output is accomplished at DEPTH'S Gardena headquarters.

While industry attention has focused on modeling and prototyping, DEPTH has established a major presence in the advertising specialty and corporate communication spaces. MarCom managers have discovered in DEPTH a comprehensive and creative source for truly unique branded products.

PMI CEO Nathan Nielson adds, "3D additive manufacturing revolutionizes product development much the same way robotics forever changed the assembly line. 3D connotes immediacy, creativity and flexibility. What was once considered wishful thinking is now a reality for product designers." Nielson drew a parallel to technology developed for military application. "3D was, until recently, the exclusive domain of science and engineering. Today, it's found a new home in the marketing department."

PMI is a full service graphic support organization providing computer-generated presentation and technical art, reprographics, multimedia, photographic processing and printing, and large format displays and exhibits.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
