R&D Technologies is in a new facility to house their 3D Printing Digital Factory. GE calls 3D printing the “Factory of the Future”. R&D now has 14 production printers with the capability to manufacture plastic parts as big as 36” x 24” x 36”. 3D printing has the advantage of being able to print parts that cannot be made in a traditional manufacturing way. R&D is the only company in New England that is part of the Stratasys Global Manufacturing Network (GMN). There are only 18 GMM worldwide and R&D is the only Northeast facility.
RIMA has been working with R&D owner, Andy Coutu, and we have co-ordinated a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of their new facility.
U.S. Senator Jack Reed will be there to address the attendees and partake in the ribbon cutting ceremony!
