Charles R. Goulding and Preeti Sulibhavi discuss the MagCAD 3DPRINTUK partnership.
MagCAD Designs Ltd, under the leadership of Andrew Magnier, has rapidly become a prominent player in the cycling industry, leveraging cutting-edge 3D printing technology to develop and produce innovative cycling components and parts. With an emphasis on agility, customer-centric design, and maintaining high-quality standards, MagCAD has experienced impressive growth within a short span of time. Partnering with 3DPRINTUK, they have found a reliable production partner to support their increasing demand and diverse portfolio.
By incorporating 3D printing not only as a development tool but also for the production of parts, MagCAD has effectively capitalized on the benefits of this technology, enabling them to respond swiftly to evolving market demands.
The company’s success is a testament to the efficiency and versatility that 3D printing brings to their design and manufacturing processes. Andrew’s combination of professional cycling experience and aerospace engineering background has evidently contributed to the company’s ability to create innovative solutions tailored to the specific needs of cyclists.
“The 3D printing process is fundamental to our business model. It allows us to react quickly to new opportunities. We can develop, test and validate components in a greatly accelerated timeline. For production, though, it reduces our upfront investment — both in terms of time and cost — compared with more traditional manufacturing methods. It also allows us far greater design freedom for creating complex geometries that are not then subsequently restricted by tooling and traditional manufacturing considerations.”– Andrew Magnier of MagCAD Designs Ltd
The company’s commitment to delivering high-quality, reliable products is evident through their stringent quality control processes. By collaborating with 3DPRINTUK, MagCAD has found a reliable partner with a shared focus on quality, lead times, and customer satisfaction. The alignment of values and the collaborative relationship between MagCAD and 3DPRINTUK has been instrumental in their joint success and will likely continue to drive their partnership in the future.
“We particularly like the real time status updates online. It allows us to manage both our own and our customers’ expectations. More often than not orders arrive quicker than expected but it’s reassuring to follow the process.”– Andrew Magnier of MagCAD Designs Ltd
With a strategic focus on customer needs, product innovation, and efficient production, MagCAD has successfully positioned itself as a key player in the cycling industry, catering to both professional and amateur cyclists alike. As the demand for customized, high-performance cycling components continues to rise, MagCAD’s strong foundation and partnership with 3DPRINTUK provide them with a solid framework to further expand their offerings and solidify their position as an industry leader.
The MagCAD 3DPRINTUK partnership enables the combined team to supply a diverse customer market. With the decline in UK production, the MagCAD 3DPRINTUK partnership should serve as a production improvement partnership. 3D printing is utilized in every aspect of the business. Being known as a supplier that can serve all aspects of a niche market should be a recipe for success.
