3D Printing Service

From 2022, we are pleased to be able to offer 3D design and printing services featuring Low Force Stereolithography technology to produce strong and highly detailed parts exactly to your requirements.

 

Over the last few years we've found more and more parts being rendered obsolete by manufacturers and small components failing of an overall part that cannot be bought individually, resulting in large repair bills for customers. We'll now be able to reproduce these parts quickly and efficiently resulting in an improved service for all our customers.

 

We are able to offer a range of printing materials from hard tough plastics, to soft flexible materials suitable for seals and gaskets. Even ceramics are an option.

If you've a part or design in mind, we are able to build a 3D CAD model and print it for you, alternatively if you've got a CAD model already, it can be sent to us for printing.

Pricing is specific to each job as it'll depend on material, quantity, whether a CAD model requires designing and the amount of post processing required.  We'll happily quote for any job required.

3D Printing Process

Step 1: Design

Using CAD software, we design your model, and export it in a 3D printable file format (STL or OBJ).

 

The printer software specifies printing settings and slices the digital model into layers for printing.

Once setup is complete, the print preparation software sends the instructions to the printer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Print

After confirmation of the correct setup, the printing process begins and the machine runs until the print is complete.

Resin is automatically dispensed to keep the printer refilled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Post Process

 

Once the printing is completed, parts require rinsing in isopropyl alcohol to remove any uncured resin from their surface.

After rinsed parts dry, some materials require post curing in a UV oven, a process which helps parts to reach their highest possible strength and stability.

Finally, supports are removed from the parts and the remaining support marks are sanded where required for a clean finish.

 

SLA parts can be easily machined, primed, painted, and assembled for specific applications or finishes.

Post curing is particularly important for functional resins for engineering, and mandatory for some applications.

Black Resin

Standard Resins. With a matte surface finish, opaque appearance, and precise details, prints are ready to use right off the printer. Their neutral undertone makes a great base for parts that will eventually be painted or undergo other finishing processes.

 

Black Resin is formulated for models with very small features and intricate details.

 

Supports print resolutions: 100, 50, and 25 microns.

Flexible 80A Resin

Flexible 80A Resin is the most stiff soft-touch material in our library of Flexible and Elastic Resins, with an 80A Shore durometer to simulate the flexibility of rubber or TPU. Balancing softness with strength, Flexible 80A Resin can withstand bending, flexing, and compression, even through repeated cycles.

The “80A” in the name represents the material’s Shore durometer.

If you need a less stiff flexible material, Elastic 50A Resin is an option. 


Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns.
