What is 3D printing?

3D printing is a materialization of a product or a prototype  from a virtual 3D model. Many 3D printing technologies like FDM, SLA, SLS, DLP, SLM are available now and are applied for creating high-quality products. Materials used in printing technologies are evolving: polymers, powder-metal,  ceramic powder.

3D printing will help you  to see a future product  in full-size or scalable and  to test it functionality.

This step is a crucial stage before taking decision for serial production. A printed prototype will allow you to find engineering mistakes or defects with possibility to fix them before costly production phase.

High-quality materials used in 3D printing help to test different physical and chemical properties of product, based on customer’s requirements.

Equipment:

SLA technology
SLA stands for Stereo Litography Apparatus
The idea is based on a layer by layer sintering of liquid photo-polymer by laser beam.
Parameters of equipment:
  • build volume: 140*140*170 mm
  • layer thickness: 25-100 microns
  • accuracy: +/- 0.1 mm
materials: standard, engineering, flexible, high temperature, castable resins.
