Creating prototype custom 3D printing products comes from an enhanced technology used to manufacture parts by printing them layer by layer. Several benefits come from it, like the amount of control of material usage and its time to produce. In addition, every project can be tested on the outcome, utilizing different prototyping materials and seeing the end result.
Solutions are better acquired by having engineers, designers, and crafty finishing experts at your side. Each detail can be checked with your team to understand and take action to give you the upper hand in your project.
A rapid way to obtain a physical model
Driven by the intended end-use of the part, it is the physical properties needed which determine the most appropriate technology for your project, which among the 3D technology ARRK North America Inc. can provide service in the following:
STEREOLITHOGRAPHY (SLA) BY DLP OR LCD:
Considered one of the most accurate additive technologies, Stereolithography is suited for finely detailed parts and huge components.
SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING (SLS):
SLS Additive Manufacturing is a 3D printing process that uses a high-powered laser to fuse small particles of plastic powders into the desired three-dimensional shape.
3D printing technology is ideal for producing prototypes requiring fine detail and high accuracy.
FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING (FDM):
The technology is used to quickly produce prototypes that are mechanically tough, sound, and rigid. FDM’s flexibility makes it practical to print complex geometries, which would be otherwise impossible with other conventional methods of production
DIRECT METAL LASER SINTERING (DMLS):
Alternatively known as Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) is a 3D printing technology where lasers sinter various powdered metal materials, creating prototypes layer by layer. It is optimal for parts with intricate geometries and thin wall sections which other metal manufacturing methods cannot produce.
Knowing how to achieve project goals
Every project can be tested on the outcomes of the desired customization in short prototyping times. If any of them need to use a different production service, at least the procedure will have a more successful outcome by using additive manufacturing first.
Functional prototypes enable designers and developers to grasp the details that provide an accurate representation of the finished product by allowing them to verify its validity before it moves on to the next stage.
The main reason for mentioning the type of 3D printing services available is that each one has a set of advantages and material usage improvements, helping your company to make the best decision with ARRK’s guidance. Besides reducing cost by identifying design and reducing design flaws in advance, it would be providing a concept model or a functional prototype with the material better suited for your project.
We understand well the rapidly changing market demands and how that affects your business. ARRK North America, Inc. will work with you during every stage of the process to ensure we meet your product needs and your production lead time goal with the best prototyping materials available.
