Gasqet marketplace for 3D printed washers, seals & gaskets

No primary category set

Gasqet is an interesting new marketplace that aims to enable consumers and businesses to get essential household parts in the United Kingdom. The one-stop shop can supply durable washers, seals and gaskets that are made in minutes via a commercial smart 3D printing platform and dispatched within 24 hours. It also includes a repair service that building customised seals and gaskets to specification.

Axelisys, inventor of the first commercial smart 3D printing platform, with their new Gasqet marketplace, aim to help solve the current shortage of supplies has hit the construction industry and provide households with sustainable parts that do not leave them vulnerable to hefty plumbing bills.

“During their lifetime, millions of households will face at least one of the problems caused by washers that break or waste away. Next thing they know, they are hit with an expensive plumbing bill and emergency call out charge. What Gasqet aims to do is deliver a convenient service that allows anyone to source durable essential parts when they need them, safe in the knowledge that they will not need to replace them regularly.”

Gasqet’s artificially intelligence driven 3D printing fleet helps homeowners and construction teams identify the right plumbing washers by taking a picture of pipework. Rigorous testing has found that the washers are significantly more durable and have greater longevity than traditional washers, as well as being fully recyclable.

Driving footfall to bricks and mortar hardware stores

Where this marketplace becomes really interesting is that it can drive traffic into traditional bricks and mortar hardware stores. Gasqet plans to roll-out deployment sites across the country and establish partnerships with leading hardware retailers. After ordering on the Gasqet marketplace, you’ll receive your nearest pick-up point by email. Gasqet sends you a link and ETA to the nearby hardware store to pick up your order and starts making the washer immediately. If you would prefer delivery, it’s automatically delivered to you for free if it’s not collected the same day.

“Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do as a company, and we have also ensured that the products we sell and how we deliver them to consumers are as environmentally friendly as possible. Our products outstrip traditional washer pressure seals by 40% and offer an almost four times higher tensile strength improvement, and our local deliveries use electric fleets or cycle couriers. Gasqet washers last longer, even though they are made from eco-friendly materials each washer lasts more than 10 years. Moreover, we are signatories to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and have published a charter which lets you know what we have committed to.
We recognise people lead busy lives with competing demands on their time, so our online marketplace sources the best and strongest parts, closest to you which ensure you never need to go on a quest to find a washer ever again.
With many washers designed to last as long as the house does, it is much better to pay pennies now then spend thousands of pounds later.
