Invention Means Innovation: Take A Look At How We’re Utilizing New Technology

At McGregor Surmount we make it a goal to strive for innovation–not only in designing our own products but in using the greatest technology available to improve our day to day business. 

This week we are taking a look at the BambuLab X1-Carbon 3D printer made by BambuLab. This isn’t a sponsored article, we just really appreciate what this technology brings to our arsenal of tools.

These tools are used in our engineering division at McGregor Surmount. Kevin Terry, our incredible test development engineer, had some amazing things to say about the 3D printer.

Needless to say, this printer has quickly become one of the most critical aspects of our workflow and manufacturing process. We have used this printer countless times for a ton of products that are changing the world as we know it.

“The X1 fits neatly between consumer level and industrial FDM printers,” says Kevin, “Which for us is exactly what we were looking for. Once we have our models loaded onto the SD-Card, the printer works like a vending machine. Just pick your project on the on screen menu and hit the go button. We’re about three months into printing with the X1-Carbon and it would appear that gone are the days of having to scrap your job two hours into the print because the ABS decided to warp, filament did not adhere or the hot end clogged … it just works.”

We are more than happy with the opportunities that new technology has brought to our company and we are excited to reveal some of our other new additions soon. For now, take a look at our other articles on the site for more information on what we’ve been up to.
