Our 3D Printing Service began in 2019
With a range of in-house 3D Printing Options we can cater to your needs.
A little bit about the methods we use below, Followed by some use cases and interesting 3D Printing Info.
Get in touch via phone call or email to discuss what your project requires and we can recommend the most suitable printing technology and material for the job.
We take the confusion out of material & Print Method selection!
Get in touch!
SLS - Powder Based Printing
SLS is a great method for durable end use parts mainly in Nylon, With various materials available SLS allows us to print parts with complex geometry. Also known as Selective Laser Sintering, during printing the un-sintered power is used as support structure as the part is built up layer by layer.Therefore leaving no undesirable support structure behind to cleanup and allowing for very complex geometry.
FDM - Fused Deposition Modeling
By far the most commonly used 3D Printing method, An FDM machine can quickly produce a prototype or end use part depending on application.
- FDM leaves layer lines
- Are not the best with fine details
- Can be sanded and painted
Resin Based 3D Printing
Resin based 3D Printing is a great way of getting high quality functional prototypes or even better End Use Market Ready Parts within days!
End Use Part Production With Trusted Loctite Materials
Loctite provides a wide range of 3D Printing resins for all applications. Get in touch with your specific needs and IEE will take care of the rest.
- Quality Control Checking of manufactured parts
- Assembly Jigs
- Securing parts for post processing
- Design Fitment Validation
- Press Forming Jigs for sheet metal parts
Use cases for 3D Printing are almost endless. If you can think of it, its probably possible!
One of many great benefits with 3D Printing is that you can print very complex geometries providing the parts have be designed correctly to be produced with additive manufacturing, Internal cooling channels, Tight grooves, Lattice Structures, Generative Design parts and so on.
3D Printing is a great method to use when traditional manufacturing techniques cannot be used to achieve the final part due to complicated internal or external geometry.
