Increase your workflow with 3D Printing
Chose between a range of processes such as FDM (polymer extrusion), SLA (UV curing resin) and SLS (powder fusing). Create quick prototypes or manufacture end-use parts inhouse. Explore our range of 3D Printer technologies we offer to find the best solution for you.
Expand with the most versatile and widely used form of 3D printing…
FDM relates to the 3D printing process whereby molten polymer is extruded through a nozzle, the polymer is allowed to set before another polymer layer is bulit on top of it.
SLA - Stereo lithography
Check out Formlabs range of SLA printers:
SLA printers work by creating a polymer shape from UV curing liquid polymer. Using light to create the shape allows for more precision.
DLP - Digital Light Processing
Achieve quick prints from UV curable resins
DLP is similar to SLA apart from one big processing difference. SLA uses a singular laser to map and cure each individual laser, DLP projects the cross section of each layer in one flash.
SLS - Select Laser Sintering
Don’t comprise quality with SLS printing
SLS printing works by using a very fine laser to fuse powder particles together to form a solid. A layer of powder is covered over the previous formed layer and the process is repeated. The unused powder acts as a support for all the features above, resulting in very intricate parts without the support marks.
Metal printing is one of the newest forms of 3D printing on the market.
Metal printing can create stronger parts which are better suited for mechanical uses, however to melt and form metal requires more energy and a better controlled environment, this can greatly increase the cost and complications of the process.
Nano dimension 3d printing
3D printing has never been so big, or so small!
3D printing has unlocked the true potential of the computerised world. Circuit boards and processors that use to fill up a whole room can now be compacted into circuits so small they fit in your hand. The ever improving power of circuit boards has lead to the rapid grow in innovation in electronics.
