3-D Printing of Prototypes
Thanks to our recent investment in a high quality 3D printer, we can now offer our customers with a limited number of prototypes in a very short time frame.
3D printing technology considerably reduces our production lead-time during the development stage and it allows the design of a broad range of prototypes.
Our printer works on the basis of FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling). In practice this means the printer builds an object layer by layer using a heated extruded plastic material. 3-D printing is a simple and proven technology that provides flexibility. The FDM technology lends itself perfectly to produce strong and functional plastic elements made in one piece.
Our printer produces parts with a maximum dimension of 400 x 350 x 400 mm, in up to ten different colours. The raw materials are UV-resistant ASA plastics providing a nice aesthetic look and feel.
If the prototypes are intended to be used for promotional pictures or market studies, we are able to provide the product in various final finishes (textured, high gloss, soft touch, etc.)
