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.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
