QRP Brings First Metal 3D Print Services to the Intermountain West

QRP took possession of a high precision Concept Laser metal 3D printer

West Jordan, Utah September 03, 2015


Qualified Rapid Products (QRP), the Intermountain West's first 3D metal printed parts supplier, announced the acquisition of a Concept Laser 3D metal printer. QRP provides comprehensive engineering services specializing in metal additive manufacturing—focusing on turn-key delivery of high-precision, low-volume functional parts.

"Many companies are looking to 3D metal printing to replace the status quo because lead times are so much shorter and geometric flexibility is opened up," said QRP CEO Rob Smith. "We are innovative application specialists that help bridge the gap between established companies and new technology."

Although 3D metal printing is not new, a local supplier of 3D printed metal parts and engineering has been unavailable until now. Located in West Jordan, QRPs services eliminate tooling and design costs for the first stages of product development. They can also reduce production costs by replacing exotic materials with advanced geometry. "Companies can have their problems solved as we consult, design, and print product-quality parts," Smith continued.

QRP provides quick-turnaround metal parts for mechanical engineers who need a product that has been qualified, is shape/weight optimized, and/or is a low-cost functional iteration.

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
