Our Technology

3D Printing

In the ever-evolving market of SLA/SLS technologies, the shift in materials over the past 30 years has been substantial. These advanced materials not only enhance performance but also replace traditional manufacturing with cost-effective and rapidly delivered solutions. Our meticulous material selection process, in both elastomeric, semi-rigid and rigid, extends from functional prototype requirements to production quality parts, whilst optimising material performance in diverse applications.

Delivery is as quick as one day.
Metal inserts can be used to strengthen threads or bear high load points
•SLA - 2000 X 1000 X 1000 mm
•SLS - 330 x 380 x 450 mm
•FDM - 700 x 700 x 2000 mm
UV curing provides working temperatures of 220C
Parts can be dyed, painted and hand-finished to exhibition standard if required.

Our Technology

Vacuum Casting

Our Vacuum Casting process offers a cost-effective avenue for low-volume production, delivering parts surpassing Injection Moulding quality.

Utilising budget-friendly silicone tools with a lifespan of approximately 25 parts, we use Polyurethane materials that mimic various polymers like Polycarbonate, PEEK, Elastomerics ranging from 20-85 shoreA, semi-rigid PP and more.

Tailoring materials to specific needs, we offer flexibility, clarity, 2K options, and high-temperature resistance. Additionally, the incorporation of metal inserts strengthens threads, and our capability for multiple over-moulding options provides versatility in creating complex components.
