Industrial 3D Printing Services for Manufacturing & Tooling
3D printing technology has evolved from a low-cost process for rapid prototyping. There are now many larger, more advanced 3D printers for larger batch sizes of parts and for using materials other than polymers. Technologies such as industrial FDM and SLA, SLS and MJF are being used for more industrial purposes such as higher volume production and tooling. 3D printing is ideal for producing cheaper moulds for injection moulding, which reduces the overall cost of mass-producing plastic parts. Industries such as automotive, medical, electrical and even toys are using industrial 3D printing technology as a viable alternative to traditional industrial processes such as CNC machining and injection moulding. With 3D printing, you can speed up and reduce the cost of industrial-scale production.
Frequently Asked Questions
Online 3D Printing Service FAQ
- What are viable alternatives to powder coating?
If you're looking to replace powder coating with another finishing option, we recommend wet painting.
- How will powder coating affect the price of my part?
For a standard metal (such as aluminium 6061) powder coating will add approximately 15% to the production price. This can vary depending on the complexity of the job.
- How durable is powder coating?
Powder coated parts typically last up to 20 years. Constant exposure to UV light and the outdoors, as well as general overuse, will cause the powder coating to deteriorate more quickly.
- What are the best applications for powder coating?
Powder coating makes metal parts resistant to outdoor conditions, including heat, cold damage and corrosion. You're likely to find powder coating on parts used in agricultural equipment, industrial machinery and heavy-duty automotive applications.
- When should you powder coat?
Powder coating provides a cost-effective, tough and durable finish to your parts, increasing their longevity and resistance to harsh environments. This makes it ideal for marine applications, for example.
