Stereolithography

Stereolithography

SLA is a fast way to get smooth and accurate models made from a variety of photopolymers, allowing for different physical properties at a low cost. It is best suited for prototypes, moulds and casting patterns as well as scale / exhibition models.

Selective Laser Sintering

Selective Laser Sintering

SLS is commonly used to build strong and durable prototypes, low-volume production or even wax patterns for foundries. Because no support is needed in this process, very complex and interlocking parts can be built.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering

Direct Metal Laser Sintering

If you need to build strong parts or require low volume production, DMLS is the process you are looking for. The precise and functional models it can print makes it a great solution for functional prototyping, tooling alongisde jigs & fixtures.

Fused Deposit Modeling

Fused Deposit Modeling

FDM printed parts are used for functional testing and engineering applications. The high performance thermoplastic materials it uses allow for great properties, opening the door to rapid manufacturing amongst and other applications.

Polyjet

Polyjet

Polyjet has the unique ability to print an array of rigid plastics and soft rubbers all in the same part, just like overmolds do. Its 30 μm layers make very fine details and realistic textures possible for any part
