Cannes Lions Festival

We are very happy to announce that we will be showcasing Sutrue at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity this June. As one of only seven exhibitors to be invited to this world class event, it’s a great opportunity for us to demonstrate all the Sutrue devices to date. This includes the latest version of the Endo and various handheld devices.

(Images from left to right: the components of the endoscopic head, the small handheld device and an illustrative 3D printed heart and brain).

We will certainly be in good company in Cannes. The other companies who are exhibiting include IBM, Google, Twitter, Validic, Annalect and iVenturesHealth.

Cranfield AILU Event

Mr Richard Trimlett and Alex Berry will once again take to the stage as part of the Association of Industrial Laser Users event at Cranfield University, Bedfordshire. The event will focus on Laser Additive Manufacturing (AM) and will include 3D printer manufacturers, materials experts and academics. A tour of the Cranfield AM facility will also take place.

Alex and Mr Trimlett will give an overview of Integrating 3D printed materials in medical device prototyping. They will describe our automatic Suturing device and how 3D printing has enabled its development. They will also provide insight into how laser sintering has provided some of our highest precision components.

European Plastic Processors

Transporting a 3D printer on a busy train can lead to more than you might imagine!

As luck would have it Alex Berry met Rose Brooke, Editor of ‘European Plastic Processors’ Magazine, on a chance encounter on a train into London. Intrigued about what Alex was carrying, Rose asked him for some more information. Alex explained the fascinating story of Sutrue to her, which resulted in Rose writing this great article below!

BBC coverage


In 2015 3D printing was in the news more than ever before and it has become one of the hottest technology topics around. We have saved millions of pounds by using 3D printing to produce prototypes of our suturing device and we were delighted when Lara Lewington from the BBC picked up on our story.
