Our facility houses an array of FDM printers and ancillary equipment including a Stratasys Fortus 450mc for printing ultra-polymer materials.

We utilise a hand-held laser scanner for product geometry validation and for reverse engineering or surveys.

We are is involved in the research, development and demonstration of innovative technology through partnerships with specialists in SMART tooling, 3D Printing, and Tool Surface Compensation.

For SMART tooling and 3D printing we can provide a turn-key solution for design, analysis, and manufacture via a trusted manufacturing supply chain.

For Tool Surface Compensation, we can provide distortion analysis of composite parts to ensure tools are appropriately designed and compensated. This can eliminate distortion issues associated with thermal expansion, shrinkage, and tool-part interaction.

These technologies can significantly reduce manufacturing lead-times, improve quality, and eliminate and ultimately reduce life-cycle costs.
