This never-seen-before display of manufacturing of 3D printers will give CES visitors a first-hand experience of how LulzBot 3D printers are manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Loveland, Colorado, USA.
Right from the 3D printing of specialised components to final calibration and packaging, the company will demonstrate the entire process that goes into the manufacturing of LulzBot 3D printers live at the conference. Speaking about the show floor factory, Harris Kenny, President of Aleph Objects said, “Our show floor factory is not a proof of concept, we’ve been using 3D printers in production since 2011.’ “Evolved makers around the world are transforming manufacturing with LulzBot 3D Printers” Kenny added.
