GPI Prototype to present Additive Manufacturing technologies
Lake Bluff, Illinois – December six, 2010 – GPI Prototype announced nowadays that it will showcase and present its additive manufacturing capabilities at the Pacific Design and style & Manufacturing 2011 show in Anaheim California on February 8th-9th 2011. GPI Prototype will be situated at booth 3874 and be available to answer questions regarding additive manufacturing and fast prototyping. GPI will also be exhibiting at the Design and style & Manufacturing South in Orlando Florida from March 16th-17th 2011 at booth 624. GPI is committed to showcasing additive technology at business events and informing consumers of the positive aspects and expense savings of additive manufacturing.
GPI Prototype has been a leader in the Prototyping Sector with its Direct Metal Laser Sintering – DMLS capabilities making use of the EOSINT M 270 DMLS machine from EOS. DMLS provides numerous benefits vs standard tooling like the ability to manufacture complex geometries and shapes not achievable with CNC machining. In addition conformal cooling channels can be integrated into styles to substantially decrease cycle and lead instances and reduce costs. GPI delivers eight material selections for DMLS including Stainless Steel, Cobalt Chrome, Maraging Steel, Bronze Alloy, Titanium Alloy, Aluminum & Nickel Alloy. Components can be constructed in 20 micron layers with a turnaround time of a handful of days.
3D Printing is also offered by GPI making use of Objet’s 3D Printer. This top of the line printer can create parts in 16 micron layers in several durometers or digital blends for outstanding detail and get rid of the classic stair impact that is problematic with Stereolithography. For a wide variety of applications eight FullCure resins are accessible in each rigid and soft varieties. Prime-good quality, correct, clean prototypes can be built in hours and shipped to the client in a couple of days.
Extra services consist of Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV), Investment Casting, Tooling, CNC Machining, Finishing, Laser Scanning & Manufacturing/Packaging options. These solutions are priced quite competitively in the business even though providing the greatest in good quality and buyer service.
