Elastomer Specialties, Inc. now provides NEW 3-D Printing capabilities for customers looking for a quick turnaround time and ability to have stunning models, parts or molds that will stay within their budget.
Our typical applications include manufacturing for conceptual models, visual analysis, low-volume production molds as well as engineering evaluations.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology is used to construct three-dimensional objects directly from 3-D CAD data. The machines create proto-types using industrial strength thermoplastic, many of which can withstand high temperatures, exposure to harmful chemicals and intense mechanical loads.
A temperature-controlled head, located inside a closed cabinet, extrudes thermoplastic material in layers, similar to how a hot glue gun extrudes melted beads of glue. Layering of this material products parts with very complex geometry that cannot be obtained by traditional methods of production.
In today's ever growing fast pace industry you will find FDM technology being utilized by engineers, designers and manufacturers on a daily basis.
If you or your company is looking to produce parts, a product mold or proto-type from your 3-D CAD file without the time and cost associated with machining, tooling and outsourcing then Elastomer Specialties can provide you with what you are looking for. If you decide to eventually go into high volume part production, we also have that capability.
At ESI, no outsourcing is necessary! We are a ONE-STOP SHOP and can take your project from beginning to end in the shortest amount of time possible.
