At Epal Engineering, we pride ourselves on working with a wide range of customers on all sorts of engineering projects. We have worked on all sorts of components across industries such as electronics, motorsport, scientific, aerospace, and marine sectors. And, a big part of what we do involves working on a subcontract basis with other engineering and manufacturing firms. Many of these firms are highly specialised in what they do, but they just need access to Epal’s range of machinery and equipment to carry out one specific job or manufacture a certain component that allows them to do their jobs. One such company that we work with is Noztek. In this post, we’ll tell you a little more about working with Noztek, this interesting firm, and how we have helped them to continue to innovate in their own niche sector.
What does Noztek do?
The concept of 3D printing, where an object seems to come out of nowhere with the use of some clever technology, has become more and more prominent in recent years. Whereas once, 3D printing was highly expensive and reserved only for a select few people who had access to the technology, it is now becoming more and more accessible to all sorts of businesses and even individuals! Noztek supplies extruders, which are a vital part of the 3D printing process. But what exactly are they? Well, for a 3D printer to make the 3D objects, they use plastic filament. This is fed through the extruder and ejected out of it in some form of liquid in order to be layered into the shape that eventually becomes the finished product.
From working with Noztek, we have learned that their customers come from a range of different industries such as the pharmaceutical sector. Many of these companies are looking to utilise Nozteks’ extruders in order to make their own unique filaments for their projects. As a part of this, they will use the extruders to test prototypes of different plastics and additions to see what effects these have on their 3D printing. The uses for such a product are varied and exciting; who knows what we might see being 3D printed in the future?
Working with Noztek: what did we do?
We have been working in partnership with Noztek for a number of years now, to help them perfect their extruders so that they can continue to serve their customers with this innovative product. If you visit the Noztek website, you will see that they supply a range of different products and options. And, Epal Engineering has worked with them to perfect a number of them. To start, Noztek will come to us with an idea of what they want to do and the sort of product their customers are looking for. We then work with them, using our vast knowledge base and specialised machinery, to make prototypes and develop them until they are just right for Noztek and their customers’ needs. Currently, we manufacture many of the parts for the extruders, allowing Noztek to sell high quality products that they know are exactly fit for purpose. By working with Noztek, each of the companies can use their specific skill sets and equipment to produce and sell extruders that work well for a whole range of industries, businesses, and needs.
