Quickparts UK make a model Rolls Royce engine for Paris Air Show

In April 2013, Rolls Royce approached Quickparts UK to make a scale-working model of their Electric Distributed Propulsion engine for the Paris Air Show.

It offered Quickparts UK a great opportunity to showcase our large in house capacities of SLA resin builds, SLS nylon builds, finishing, painting and assembly work as well as associated fabricated and machined parts.

Additive Manufacturing offered a solution to produce complex components on time to a fixed deadline and on budget.
