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 Wests 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.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
