Rapid prototyping: All our 3d printing techniques
Do you have a 3d printing, additive manufacturing project? Do you want to materialize your ideas, thanks to our professional 3d printingtechnologies? Here is a brief description of the 3d printing technologies that we use at Axis, theadditive manufacturing specialist since 1997.
3d printing by Stereolithography :
Stereolithography is a technology for 3d printing from resin (presence of manufacturing support) with a good surface condition where its raw color can change from white to transparent. Stereolithography for 3d printing has good dimensional properties (without risk of deformation) and good tensile and thermal resistance depending on the material chosen. With this 3d printing technology, it is possible to make complex shapes. The possible finishes are: raw, primed, painted, metallized, assembled, grained and we can install inserts.
3D printing by selective laser sintering:
Powder sintering is a technology for 3D printing which is made from white powder which generates a porous surface state. The 3d models made from this 3d printing process have good mechanical, thermal and tensile strength with fairly good dimensional accuracy. We can make complex parts with mechanisms, hinges, inclusions, clip, … The possible finishes are: rough, primed, painted, metallized, assembled, grained.
3D printing by Multi Jet Fusion HP:
Multijet Fusion Hp is a 3d printing technology from powder creating a porous gray surface due to the black agents and white PA powder. The models produced from this3d printing process have good mechanical, thermal and tensile strength with extreme and fine dimensional precision. It is possible to make complex shapes with mechanisms, hinges, inclusions, clip, … without risk of deformation. The possible finishes are: rough, black colored, primed, painted, metallized, assembled, grained.
3d printing by vacuum casting:
Vacuum casting is a 3D printing technology which is produced from a part in Stereolithography used as a master model in a silicone mold where PU material is introduced therein under vacuum. The properties of the 3d prototypes produced with this type of 3d printingdepend on the material chosen but are quite close to those of the injection. The color is then tinted in the mass according to your choice and why not in bi-material. The possible finishes are: the installation of inserts, assembly, painting, …
3d printing by fused deposition modeling:
The3d printing by wire deposition is carried out from a plastic wire melted by layers producing an irregular aspect but with a large panel of color. 3D printing by wire deposition has good mechanical, thermal and tensile strength with fairly good dimensional accuracy.
Rim 3D printing:
This 3d printing technology makes it possible to make plastic 3d prototypes of good material (close to injection) with a good surface finish in the desired colors (mass-tinted). They will have good thermal resistance, ideal for even mechanical tests.
