An exciting new collaboration agreement between Fieldmade AS, the experts in mobile additive manufacturing, and Mark3D UK Limited, the UK’s largest Markforged reseller will provide local supply and support for the NOMAD® Lightweight (LW) range of portable 3D printing solutions throughout all sectors of the UK economy.
Lillestrøm & Birmingham – October 2022 – Today Fieldmade AS and Mark3D UK have announced a strategic partnership agreement which will see the supply of Fieldmade Nomad® LW portable 3D printers in to the UK, exclusively by Mark3D UK.
The announcement defines a step change in the go to market strategy for the supply, support and servicing of the Markforged based Fieldmade Nomad ® LW range. Fieldmade CEO Jostein Olsen explains further “Fieldmade AS are specialists in a number of primary areas, our products and services cover Digital Inventory Management, Consulting Services and the Nomad range of in-field additive manufacturing equipment. It makes sense for us to work with the UK Markforged specialists, Mark3D UK to improve our offering to the UK’s defence and energy sectors, who have shown huge interest in our LW products”.
The Nomad LW is based on the award winning Mark Two from Markforged Inc, which has proved very popular with engineers across all disciplines. As Ian Weston MD of Mark3D UK points out “ The Mark Two is a very compact and manageable size, it’s very easy to use and when combined with its ability to print parts that are stronger than aluminium, it’s the obvious choice for operationally critical 3D printing. The LW can easily be transported in the air, over the sea and across land to final destinations. Incredibly, engineers can transport this equipment whilst it is still printing, due to the in-built uninterruptable power source (UPS). The core benefit of the Nomad ® LW is continuous operation at the point of need, even in the most extreme and remote environments”.
The Nomad ® LW comes equipped with a sustainment pack, service agreement and enough materials to print for a number of months. It also ships with a ruggedised travel case which allows it to be transported without damage. Ian goes on the further say “It isn’t beyond the realms of possibility to see these units being dropped out of planes by parachute or pop up in remote jungle locations after travelling for days in the back of a 4×4, the only consideration will be a power source for longer prints and to charge the UPS”.
The Nomad ® LW is one of the range of Nomad offerings available from Fieldmade AS. Larger solutions are available in Nomad 1, Nomad 2 or Nomad 3 configurations which are designed to meet end user requirements. These solutions provide users with a pre-packaged micro-factory which is fully deployable to anywhere in the world. Materials include Polymer, Composite and Metal, providing the greatest possible choice. Integration in to the Fieldmade Digital Inventory software means it’s now possible to access fully aggregated, print-ready files, with supporting metadata and print them at the point of need anywhere at any time.
