3D PRINTING FOR PROTOTYPING AND MODELS

3D printing services for product development at warp speed. 3D printing is the fastest and cost effective way to produce models, prototypes and low numbers of end-use parts. 3D printing is now the DNA of product development and used across the product life cycle.

With one of the largest 3D printing capacities in the UK, we offer an array of services that enable design form and functionality testing. Our 3D printing technologies include large-bed stereolithography (SL), selective laser sintering (SLS) and fused filament fabrication (FFF). All deliver on speed, detail, realism, strength and cost savings.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

This powder bed fusion 3D printing process utilises thermoplastic polymers. It is suitable for both prototyping and printing functional parts. SLS offers high levels of design freedom and high levels of accuracy, producing parts with good, consistent isotropic mechanical properties and excellent layer bonding.

The SLS printing process is fully self-supporting, enabling complex geometries.

Stereolithography (SL)

Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing produces outstanding models with outstanding finishes in next to no time.

Our large bed, state-of-the-art SLA printers deliver on very tight tolerances and very low layer thickness, resulting in precise, high quality, finely detailed, complex shapes with exceptionally smooth surfaces.

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) or composite 3D printing utilises an extrusion process and highly durable, production-grade thermoplastic resins. FFF delivers parts with mechanical stability, high heat resistance, and in some instances, excellent flammability scores. FFF is suitable for one off functional prototypes, hard-wearing tooling, and very low volume functional parts. Parts are ready for use straight off the printer.
