As a rapid prototyping service bureau, we function much like a machine shop, fabricating parts for a variety of client across multpile sectors. We specialize in plastics, using state-of-the-art additive manufacturing processes to build prototypes. 3D Printing for rapid prototyping facilitates the quick turnaround of parts, models and working prototypes. Our product development services and solutions enable testing, analysis, and refinement of client designs that drastically reduce time to market.
Our Stereolithography (SL) services leverages the most advanced technology and equipment to deliver highly functional, remarkably accurate prototypes, faster than ever. We turn around exact replicas of computer solid models within hours or days, by solidifying a liquid photo-curable resin, layer by layer, with a UV laser. We use only superior, remarkably versatile Somos resins in our stereolithography machines, which are staffed by seasoned experts. Our craftsmen and engineers have spent years mastering the science and art of producing exceptional SL models.
Fused deposition modeling, also known as fused filament fabrication, creates 3D printed plastic parts by extruding thermoplastic filaments in sequential, back-to-back layers. This 3D printing process delivers high accuracy, durability and consistency, so parts are unparalleled in mechanical, thermal and chemical strength. It is a streamlined and cost effective process that is ideal for running designs, fit and function testing, short production runs, jigs, and fixtures.
Founded in 1994, Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a laser-based technology of metal 3D printing that uses powdered metals. The combination of an exacting laser, powder and advanced additive processes produce parts that have strong mechanical properties. Industries such as aerospace, medical, and energy rely on DMLS technology to produce sturdy, functional metal parts.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a method to manufacture prototypes in the early stages of the design cycle or production parts across a spectrum of applications. It produces parts by sintering fine polymer powder particles to create durable and sometimes geometrically complex components for batch or serial manufacturing. SLS parts are tough, water-resitant and air-tight, heat resistant and replicable. Layer by layer, your inspiration is brought to life.
For prototypes with impeccably precise details and smooth surface finishes, ART offers an alternative rapid prototyping choice – Multijet™ Printing. Multijet™ printing allows tremendous precision, with layers up to seven times finer than standard stereolithography models. Prototypes can be built from seven different resins making ART’s 3-D printer extremely versatile. The fine layer resolution and the material options make the process well-suited for building amorphic shapes, small-scale figurines, rubber-like parts, and injection molded-like models.
