Silencing the Drones
In August 2015, brothers Mat Rowe, Seamus Pentecost, and Ian Rowe founded Dotterel Technologies to develop noise reduction solutions for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as drones. 3D printing plays a significant role in the company’s programme.
Mat Rowe says, “A major factor in getting a high end 3D printer is build volume. The time is the limitation. That is why we currently have seven of them. Right now, we need more parts faster; we need greater flexibility; and we need accelerated design iteration and validation…..We chose Fuji Xerox because it is a trusted brand and we knew about 3D Systems, which has been making 3D printers since they were invented because it is one of the patent holders and inventors of the technology. Its printers are the standard; they offer speed and efficacy.”
