Farleygreene sieving technology has recently undergone a significant upgrade to the test facilities at their Hampshire based factory in the UK.
Senior Research and Development Engineer, Matthew Calow, who coordinated the refresh explains:
“the aim of the update is to control dust, creating a clean room that is dedicated to high precision testing for the additive manufacturing and similar industries. The segregation of the room will also allow us to run two tests concurrently without disturbing operations in our assembly facility.”
But this recent upgrade is representative of a much bigger picture, following the recent growth of the company into the 3D printing arenas, the updated facilities demonstrate a larger focus on R&D and last year Farleygreene recruited their first R&D Engineer, Vincent Yang, to help them achieve this. Yang has worked alongside the Farleygreene Engineering Team to implement significant design improvements. “Within the past year we have been able produce in-depth analysis on the performance of our existing machines, enabling us to implement new design improvements and increase our understanding of powder handling, developing better solutions to fit our customer’s needs”, explains Managing Director Antony Hare.
The test room is now in its next stage to be upgraded to laboratory standard, as Farleygreene address the ever-growing demands of their rapid expansion. They have always welcomed customers to their premises to carry out in-house trials before they make the decision to purchase, and currently offer an extensive range of machinery ready to use for demonstration at their premises.
