Our new FDM (Fused Deposition modeling) 3D printer enables us to create accurate polymer based components. This technology is now printing functional products as well as prototypes due to the advance in the materials our machine builds from.

3D Printer FDM

 

Our new Fused Deposition modeling (FDM) machine can print parts with any geometry no matter how complex. It creates accurate PLA, ABS, Nylon and PVA parts based on CAD designs, and final parts won't warp, or shrink and are tough enough to be used as working componants and can withstand rigorous testing in a multitude of harsh environments. 
  • CAD files (a solid from SolidWorks, Solidedge, Inventor, CATIA, Pro E, STEP, SAT or IGES) can be sent direct to us by email and we can begin the process of printing your design.
  • We can also accept files that have been made using 3D scanners so we can recreate already existing parts to an extremely high build resolution.
  • This service dependent on machine times and how busy the machine is can be ready the very next day for collection or delivery.

 

We currently use this technology at Griffiths Precision Moulds to create any plastic models, working prototypes and sketch models at several stages in the design development process. Due to the software we use the parts allow us to create geometry otherwise impossible to manufacture by any other method than printing. At the same time parts/assemblies are mechanically strong, light weight, dimensionally accurate to +-0.05 mm and resistant to chemicals or distortion due to environmental changes. This is a quick, low cost way to create a model or mould for a huge variety of applications.
