Keeping your tyres in good shape is essential for your safety and your vehicle’s performance. That’s why it’s important to visit Auto Boland Jaguar Land Rover for a complimentary tyre health check.

Our expert technicians will look for signs of uneven wear and tread depth as well as flaking, chips, bulges, punctures and cuts. They’ll check your tyre pressure and TPMS sensors and even check your spare tyre or inflation kit.

If a replacement is required, we’ll only fit Jaguar Land Rover Approved Tyres, designed to deliver the best possible performance under a wide range of driving conditions on and off-road. They offer better grip for acceleration and braking, more refined steering, improved directional control, and shock absorption for road bumps and vibrations.

3DWIT Ireland 2RPS have partnered with 3DWIT to demo the flagship RPS NEO800, a world-class large-format stereolithography system.

3DWIT is Irelands only dedicated centre for 3D printing and hands-on training and is based in the Waterford Institute of Technology. 3DWIT offers support and education to industry in the high potential and fast growing field of Additive Manufacturing. This week, 3DWIT has hosted technical open days with RPS and DSM, inviting companies to learn about the capabilities of the NEO800 and DSM resins for the medical sector.

Mike Kelly, Centre Manager at 3DWIT comments; “As part of our remit to raise awareness of Additive Manufacturing technology, we are delighted to welcome both RPS and DSM to our Waterford based AM Lab. The delivery of successful applications in AM is dependant on the 3D Print platform working in harmony with the latest generation materials. This week has been a great opportunity for 3DWIT to showcase the NEO800 SLA platform along with DSM’s leading SLA materials.”

David Storey, Director at RPS comments; “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to showcase the NEO800 and specifically it’s use within the medical sector.”

“Medical devices such as surgical guides require full manufacturing process traceability, from the raw materials being utilised, the printing process, and finally the post processing of the printed parts. This traceability is completely supported by the NEO800 through its comprehensive build parameter recording software which allows exporting of data files in csv format.”

“The NEO800 complies with the latest Industry 4.0 manufacturing data exchange and facilitates integration of real time processing for smart factory monitoring”.

“The NEO800 is renowned for its reliability and has exceptional layer-to-layer scanning repeatability, producing parts with industry-leading sidewall quality. Dynamic laser focusing enables the production of highly accurate and detailed parts which in turn lends itself perfectly to the bespoke need of the medical industry.”

“RPS is moving into an exciting phase and we are committed to taking our state-of-the-art technology to new markets, we are very optimistic about what the future holds."
