Advantages and Benefits
Fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology
The most applicable durable plastic additive manufacturing process we utilize on a daily basis, FDM uses a heated extrusion head to melt the material, which is then hardened immediately upon extrusion from a nozzle. Layer by layer, one cross-section at a time, your part is built.
Complex, high-requirement parts
Easily embed hardware, circuitry, and other non-thermoplastic materials into your parts with minimal downtime for changeover.
Material options will increase unattended build time up to two full weeks.
Speed, agility, and growth opportunity
Advanced additive manufacturing allows you to expand your manufacturing business by using your own designs.
