Dremel Digilab donates 3D printers to boost Engineering offering at Cambridge Regional College

Cambridge Regional College (@CRC_College) engineering department has taken delivery of two new @Dremel #3D printers following a generous donation from Dremel, part of Robert BOSCH Group. 

The Dremel DigiLab 3D printer is a compact unit offering the latest in 3D technologies that will enable learners to further develop their design, print and engineering skills. The printers come with the latest software and filament capabilities meaning that learners will be able to explore a range of techniques, including the production of flexible filaments in addition to the solid structures more often seen with 3D printing.

Business Developer for Dremel Digilab, Jean-Pierre Lihou, said,

“Engineering is close to my heart and it is this that lead me to suggest making a donation of up-to-date technology to the college. Dremel and Bosch are keen to support young people entering the engineering industry and this equipment will enable learners to push themselves with their creativity. We use these printers in our everyday business to produce prototypes to make engineering decisions and on specialist projects such as the trophy design project we have done recently with FIA Formula E; the possibilities really are endless.”

Phil Culverwell, Interim Head of Department for Engineering said,

“The 3D printers that have been donated by Dremel will enable our learners to use the same standard of printing technologies that are being used within the industry. The consumables the printers use has changed over the years and the method of setting the printers up is a lot less time consuming, making the process much more efficient for our learners. All-in-all the printers are a great asset for the Engineering department.”
