3D PRINTING FOR PROTOTYPING AND MODELS

Product development at warp speed

3D printing is now the DNA of product development and used across the product life cycle. 3D printing is, without a doubt, the fastest, most efficient and cost effective way to produce one-offs, prototypes and low numbers of end-use parts.

With one of the largest 3D printing capacities in the UK, we offer an array of modern technologies and processes enable design form and functionality testing. Our 3D printing services include stereolithography (SLA), 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 process utilising thermoplastic polymers is suitable for 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.

Printing is fully self-supporting, enabling complex geometries.

Stereolithography (SL)

Stereolithography produces outstanding models with outstanding finishes in next to no time.

Our state-of-the-art technology delivers 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)

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 low volume functional parts. Parts are ready for use straight off the printer.
