3D Printing Services

We offer a wide range of 3D printing technologies suitable for functional prototypes, complex designs and end-use aplications. Materials from plastics and flexibles through to high spec engineering metals, choose between hobbyist and professional services.

SLS
(Selective Laser Sintering)
3D-printing-material-plastic-powder-PA12

SLS additive manufacturing uses a laser to bond small grains of plastic, ceramic, glass or other materials such as metals, layer by layer into a 3D dimensional structure.

- High accuracy of parts 

- Functional, end use parts

- Low-volume production 

- Durable prototypes with high toughness and impact strength

- Variable Stiffnesses and Ductilities available

- Nylon or Polyamide based materials

- Production parts

SLA
(Stereolithography)
Alfa-Romeo-Sauber-F1®-Team’s-racecar-rol

Stereolithography uses an ultraviolet laser to cure layers of liquid resin. It is great for plastic or flexible parts that require a high level of accuracy and surface quality.

- High accuracy parts (Possible up to +/- 0.01mm) 

- Transparent Parts

- Smooth Surface Finishes

- Visual parts for prototypes and photographic purposes

- Master parts for moulds such as Vacuum Casting and Urethane Casting

- Dentistry and Medical

- Verification of tolerances and fit of multiple part assemblies

- Wide range of materials and colours (Flexible / Rigid etc.)

DMLS
(Direct Metal Laser Sintering)

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a process whereby a laser or multiple lasers fuse a bed of powder of the chosen material (Typically Steel, Stainless or Titanium ), in order to create the solid structure.  DMLS is best for building fully functioning metal parts. 

- High accuracy of parts 

- Fully functional metal prototype or end use parts

- Low-volume production 

- Complex geometries that CNC machining cannot achieve

- Automotive Applications

- Medical Applications

- Aerospace Applications

- Variable metals available (Stainless Steel, Steel, Titanium etc)

MJP
(Multi-Jet Printing)

MJP or MultiJet Printing is an inkjet printing process that uses piezo printhead technology to deposit either photocurable plastic resin or casting wax materials layer by layer.

- High accuracy of parts 

- Functional, end use parts

- Low-volume production 

- Durable prototypes with high toughness and impact strength

- Variable Stiffnesses and Ductilities available

- Nylon or Polyamide based materials

- Highly consistent material properties

- High quality surface finish

FDM
(Fused Deposition Moulding)
Polymaker-PolyMide-CoPa-Filament-Schwarz

FDM Technology builds parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament. The FDM Printers work with production-grade thermoplastics to build strong and durable parts.

- Medium accuracy of parts (Possible up to +/- 0.1mm)

- Functional low volume end use parts

- Suitable for production grade thermoplastics (Such as ABS)

- Prototyping for form, fit and function testing

- Lightweight but structural honeycomb parts

- Automotive applications

- Aerospace applications

- Wide range of materials and colours
