Powder-based printing, also known as powder bed fusion, utilizes a fine powder material such as plastic, metal, or ceramics. Layer by layer, a high-powered laser or electron beam selectively fuses the powder particles, creating intricate and precise three-dimensional objects. This method excels in producing durable parts with complex geometries, making it ideal for industries like aerospace, automotive, and engineering. Powder-based printing offers a wide range of materials, including metals like titanium and aluminum, as well as ceramics, providing versatility for various applications.

Filament Based Printing

Filament-based printing is one of the most widely used 3D printing methods, known for its cost-effectiveness and versatility. It operates by feeding a roll of plastic wire (known as filament) into an extruder where it is heated and melted. The molten plastic is then precisely deposited layer by layer, building the desired object based on computer-generated designs. This method is favored for its affordability and suitability for both prototyping and end-use parts across industries. Filament-based printing offers a variety of materials, including PLA, ABS, PETG, and more, catering to diverse project requirements.

Resin Based 3D Printing

Resin-based printing, also called stereolithography or SLA, utilizes liquid photopolymer resin and is cured layer by layer using UV light. This method excels in producing highly detailed and smooth surfaces, making it ideal for applications requiring intricate designs and fine details. From jigs & moulds to end use parts, resin-based printing offers exceptional precision and aesthetics. With a range of materials available, including consumer grade, flexible, biocompatible resins, engineering & end use ready materials. It provides versatility for various industries, ensuring quality results for every project.
