Ricoh 3D has been announced as a double-finalist in the prestigious TCT Awards 2024. This recognition underscores the company’s commitment to innovation and excellence in the field of 3D printing.

The TCT Awards, divided into Innovations and Applications categories, honours groundbreaking developments and real-world applications of 3D printing technologies. With an array of exceptional finalists this year, including many AM global giants and newcomers, Ricoh 3D stands out among the esteemed contenders.

TCT commented: “After an abundance of high-quality entries into the TCT Awards this year, we are happy to announce the shortlist of sixty-one finalists for 2024!

“A huge thank you to everyone who entered the TCT Awards this year. We received an extremely high calibre of applications and, after much deliberation, are pleased to announce our 2024 finalists…”

The Nominations

In the Applications categories, which celebrate the practical ‘real life’ impact of 3D technologies, Ricoh 3D has secured nominations for both Consumer Product Application and Industrial Product Application Awards.

For the Consumer Product Application Award, Ricoh 3D earned recognition for its 3D printed CBAM bolt handle, developed in collaboration with valued partners, Impossible Objects and Athletics 3D. This innovative product, described as ‘worth its weight in gold’ – as evidenced with the achievement of 6 Gold medals in the latest Olympic Biathlon Championships – showcases the company’s prowess in delivering custom ergonomic solutions for elite athletes.

In the Industrial Product Application Award category, Ricoh 3D impressed the judges with RICOH’s in-house solution designed to optimise the thermal performance of RICOH’s own Theta camera. Leveraging RICOH’s own unique proprietary metal binder jetting technology (BJT) in conjunction with advanced design software from nTopRICOH Company Ltd. enhanced the heat dissipation of the camera, enabling it to operate seamlessly for 24+ hours in high-heat environments.
