Strong, durable thermoplastic components


Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a 3D Printing technology popularly featured in most consumer grade desktop 3D printers. This method of 3D Printing requires a fairly simple setup, using only a heated nozzle, a build platform, and coiled thermoplastic filaments to build an object. Before printing begins, the modeling software slices the 3D CAD file, and it creates an extrusion path that the nozzle will follow. Any necessary supports that the object needs are also factored into the path. The computer controls the nozzle’s movements as it works its way across the build platform, creating a cross-section of the object in accordance with the calculated path. We also offer Selective Laser Sintering, Direct Metal Printing and Stereolithography services.

Other Services We Offer


SLS Machine

SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is best used in applications that require durable, low volume prototype or production parts. It is a great solution for geometries that contain internal features.

DIGITAL LIGHT PROCESSING

Digital Light Processing (DLP) refers to a method of printing that makes use of light and photosensitive polymers. In most forms of DLP, each layer of the desired structure is projected onto a vat of liquid resin that is then solidified layer by layer as the buildplate moves up or down. As the process creates each layer successively, it is quicker than most forms of 3D printing.

STEREOLITHOGRAPHY

Stereolithography (SL, SLA) has a faster print time than FDM and SLS, and it is often the most accurate printing method available due to the precision achievable with a laser. A great solution for Rapid Prototyping, Concept Models, and Investment Casting Patterns.

DMLS On-Demand Printing

DIRECT METAL LASER SINTERING

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) can create fully dense 3D printed metal parts in a number of alloys. Advantages are reduced weight, simplified assemblies and increased functionalities.
