Markforged madness Recap
On Thursday, March 15, Reynolds Machinery held an event that would please their clients and sports fans alike. A distributor of world-class CNC machines and has been a part of the Dayton region since 1938, Reynold Machinery wanted to present its latest offerings during the biggest collegiate sporting event of the year. The Markforged Madness tied in the NCAA basketball tournament and gave an opportunity to show the brand new 3D printers to the invited guests.
While the games played in the background, demonstrations were running for the customers interested in rapid prototyping. Customers were welcomed at this catered event with the chance to see these incredible machines in action. They were shown various examples of detail, structural tolerances, and composite materials.
Most 3D printers print in a corn or oil-based plastic, but the Mark Two and X7 are able to print in Kevlar and Carbon Fiber materials which are much stronger and more durable. This allows for not just prototypes but working parts ready to go in a matter of hours, not days or weeks.
While the sales floor was abuzz with these amazing machines, the conversations ranged from dimensional accuracy to Loyola’s fantastic finish. Friendly competitive shooting went on in between commercial breaks near the loading docks with the help of an inflatable free throw line, allowing 2 people to square off against the clock.
Reynolds Machinery is located at 760 Liberty Lane in West Carrollton and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
