LANDR set for take-off at TCT3 Sixty with new UK-manufactured large format 3D printer

LANDR set for take-off at TCT3 Sixty with new UK-manufactured large format 3D printer

New additive manufacturing technology – designed and manufactured in the UK – is set to be launched at TCT 3Sixty today.

LANDR, which has been spun out of fast-growing RYSE 3D, is looking to unlock engineering-grade technology and materials for SMEs, disruptors and entrepreneurs with the arrival of LANDR 500.

Featuring an expansive 500x500x500mm build volume, the large format FDM printer gives users the scope to build larger and more complex parts and can be applied to rapid prototyping and volume production for end-use in automotive, aerospace, healthcare and consumer sectors.

It is the brainchild of Mitchell Barnes, who recognised the need for a cost-effective 3D printer that delivered high power and flexible capability. At £11,398.80 inc VAT, its nearest competitor is ten times the cost, three times the weight and twice the size, making it difficult to fit into shop floor operations.

Nearly £200,000 of pre-orders are already in the pipeline and LANDR will use the TCT 3Sixty event to give potential customers the opportunity to register their interest.

“I was frustrated with what I was seeing in the marketplace, especially the lack of options that was in our financial reach. Like most difficult things I encounter in life, there is no choice but to take them head-on and develop innovative solutions from scratch,” explained Mitchell Barnes, who recently saw RYSE 3D claim a King’s Award for Enterprise Innovation Award.

“Over the course of the next twelve months, the team has designed, tested and built LANDR 500, a 3D Printer that will support a wide range of engineering-grade material, delivering strength and durability of large and complex parts.”

He continued: “This technology is simply not built in the UK, yet we knew we had the knowledge and technical expertise to change that notion. It has been a real labour of love, but we have now built and are successfully using ten printers at our sister business RYSE 3D. 

“With 30,000+ hours of use so far, there’s no better testing ground than a company supplying parts to 18 of the world’s Hypercars.”

LANDR, which is in the Warwickshire town of Shipston-on-Stour, is going to be completing a world first live demonstration of the LANDR 500 on EVO3D’s stand (Hall 1, C20) at TCT 3Sixty in Birmingham.

The 3D printer offers 100°c heated chamber, 500°c Hot End, 140°c Bed, speeds of 500mm/s (even while printing Nylon-CF), Bondtech LGX extruder, double skin gold reflective insulation, built in camera and auto nozzle wipe and nozzle purge, with heated filament dryer coming as standard.

A user-friendly, intuitive interface makes it easy to use and accommodates operatives of all experience levels, whilst the full aluminium chassis delivers long-term durability.

Mitchell went on to add: “We’re excited to offer cutting-edge technology at a price point that makes it accessible to SMEs, tech disruptors, and entrepreneurs. Now, they can enjoy the same level of precision, quality, and capacity that was once reserved for larger companies.

“The large build volume and print speed enables printing of multiple smaller parts or large components in a single run, improving productivity in the process. It’s versatile, efficient and there will be no material lock, meaning you can use whichever material you choose with it.”

He concluded: “We are hugely proud to be a British manufacturer and are delighted to bring world class additive manufacturing technology – designed and manufactured entirely in the UK – to a global audience.”
