Rapid Prototyping - 3D Printing
Using the latest in Rapid Prototyping / 3D Printing Technology means that we offer our customers the quickest, most accurate and cost effective prototype development and design process validation. This can be done with a variety of materials all of which have been developed for a specific purpose. During the prototype feasibility stage the most appropriate process is identified inline with the specific requirement and quoted accordingly.
This usually is based on factors such as material properties available, time taken, accuracy required and cost incurred. We have processes that cover all aspects of the above to allow us to remain competitive in different market sectors - Automotive, Medical, Aerospace and Consumer Goods.
- Objet Polyjet - 3D Printing
- Selective Laser Sintering - SLS
- Fused Deposition Modelling - FDM
- Stereo Lithography - SLA
Fit and function model built via Objet 3D Printer - 4 hours to validate a CAD design before production tool sign-off.
Master generation for mould making such as Vacuum Casting - where timeframes are incredible quick - Master 1 day, Silicone Tool 1 day and 3 - 4 parts manufacture per day.
Our Objet EDEN 500V 3D printers are capable of making fully working assemblies built in one run on the machines - a water soluble support structure makes this possible.
