Laser sintering is the most versatile 3D printing technology and the most widely used to build functional prototypes and produce final components. This technology does not require support structures and provides total freedom in terms of shapes and complexity of the parts. Hundreds of small parts can be produced in a single machine cycle.
- PAGF (PA12 glass-filled)
- PAFC (Food Contact)
- Color Dyeing
- Vibro-finishing (mechanical smoothing)
- Waterproof Resin Coating
- Complex geometries – no supports
- Functional prototypes
- End-use components
- Optimization of time and costs
- Serial production
The vacuum casting process consists in creating a rapid silicone mold, obtained by taking an impression of a master model. The equipment created is then used to mold the required parts, typically using a two-component polyurethane. Both the mold creation and the polyurethane casting must take place under vacuum to ensure the excellent mechanical resistance and surface finish characteristics typical of this technology.
