BEAR Power Supplies adds high-performance 3D printer for prototyping

Phelps, NY - April 17, 2015 - BEAR Power Supplies has added high-performance 3D printing to its design and manufacturing facility near Rochester, NY. The company will use its new Airwolf AW3D HD2X printer to create prototype enclosures for its standard and custom power supplies.

"3D printing of enclosure prototypes is a great extension of our existing prototyping capabilities," said Michael Allen, president of BEAR Power Supplies and its parent company, Z-AXIS. "With this higher-end 3D printer, our engineers can design and produce a prototype enclosure in less than a day. It enhances our ability to deliver complete, elegant prototype assemblies at a reasonable cost."

BEAR Power Supplies customers include medical, commercial and industrial equipment manufacturers who often have unique constraints and cannot use standard enclosures for their power supplies. While custom enclosures from plastic or metal fabricators are economical in high volumes, the prototypes are expensive and take weeks to procure. BEAR can now provide the prototypes faster and cheaper, and quickly turn around any needed changes after customer review and test.

The Airwolf AW3D HD2X has an 11 x 8 x 12 inch capacity with 0.002 inch layer-to-layer resolution. It works with engineering-grade materials including PLA, ABS, polycarbonate and TPE, an elastomer.
