Metal 3D printing

We offer metal 3D printing using the new ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing) technology, combining classic FDM 3D printing with MIM (Metal Injection Molding) technology. The result is a fully dense metal part with mechanical properties comparable to rolled material.

By eliminating powerful lasers and working with metal powder, our resulting print price is approximately 30% lower than current metal 3D SLM or DMLS technologies.

Materials:

  • 1.4542 / AISI 17-4 PH – Martensitic, precipitation-hardening stainless steel that provides an outstanding combination of high strength, good corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties at temperatures up to 316°C.
  • 1.2344 / AISI H13 – Tough tool steel, resistant to thermal fatigue and temperature shocks. Suitable for inserts, cores and cavities for die casting dies, plastic mold cavities and hot work tooling applications.
  • 1.2363 / AISI A-2 – Chromium alloy tool steel provides an effective combination of strength and toughness with good wear resistance. Suitable for cold work tooling applications.
  • From Q4/2019 1.2379 / AISI D-2 – High carbon and chrome tool steel with high hardness.
  • More materials will be added over time, such as Inconel 625, Titan 6-4, 316L stainless steel, aluminum alloys (6062 and 7072), copper, etc.

Maximal part size:  235 × 85 × 65.5 (80) mm

Larger parts must be split and then joined by screwing, welding, or gluing together.

Our guaranteed accuracy conforms to ISO 2768-c (rough tolerances corresponding to castings) and ISO 2768-m for optimized geometries.

More precise dimensions need to be machined.

Composite material 3D printing

Parts are made from Nylon (Polyamide) mixed with chopped carbon fiber which can be printed on its own or reinforced with continuous Carbon, Kevlar, Fiberglass or HSHT Fiberglass, long-strand fibers.

This allows us to produce parts as strong as 6061 aluminum alloy but 40% lighter, thus providing a high-strength thermoplastic with excellent heat resistance (up to 105-145°C), surface finish and chemical resistance.

We can produce parts on a next-day basis so you can avoid the time and money spent in machining.

Materials:

Plastis – Onyx (Polyamid mixed with chopped carbon fiber)

Long-strand fibers: Carbon, Kevlar, Fiberglass or HSHT – High Strength High Temperature Fiberglass

Maximal part size: 320 × 132 × 154 mm

3D printing on an FDM printer – plastic printing

Our portfolio also includes plastic printing. It is not among our core manufacturing technologies, but we use plastic printing to verify print geometry for very complex 3D metal prints. The customer can thus evaluate functionality before the printing and subsequent heat treatment of the metal part.

Technology: FFF/FDM

Materials: PLA, ABS, PC, ASA, PA (Nylon), PVA (water-soluble supports)

Two different materials can be printed simultaneously.

Maximum size of one material print: 215 x 215 x 200 mm
Maximum size of two materials print: 197 × 215 × 200 mm

3D scanning

The RangeVision Spectrum is a stationary 3D scanner. We use it for reverse engineering and output dimensional inspection of parts made on a metal 3D printer.
Since the scanner is portable, we can come to you and perform on-site scanning.
We also offer separate scanning services.

Scanning zones: from 1 cm to 3 meters.

Resolution: up to 0.072 mm
Accuracy: up to 0.04 mm

FAQ

What kind of documentation do I need to produce a part?

A model in .stp format is ideal, possibly with a drawing or additional specification of the component (optical requirements, stress analysis, etc.). If you do not have such data, then just a sketch and we will take care of everything else.

I would like to have an already produced part made of fiber-reinforced plastic for better mechanical properties but have no documentation for it. What can I do?

You can send us the part or bring it to us. We will scan and measure it, make adjustments as required and manufacture it.
If you need the part for your operations, we will come to you and scan it on the factory floor to minimize shutdown.

I need to have certain surfaces manufactured very accurately, e.g. coaxial. What is the accuracy of the finished product?

After printing and sintering, product accuracy is guaranteed to conform with ISO 2768-c. For geometry-optimized components, we achieve an accuracy of +/- 0.1mm. If you need surface treatment or precision machining for some areas, simply indicate these requirements in your order and we will arrange such treatment/finishing.

I have already prepared a structural design for a part (I have a model). When will I get it if I order it today?

Everything of course depends on current capacity, but we are able to deliver metal parts within a week from order confirmation.
We deliver products made of composite materials within five days. If you need a product as soon as possible, please contact us by phone.

I only need a design for parts or devices. Can I order this service only, without you producing it?

Of course. We also offer manufacturing as a separate service.

Do you ship products outside the Czech Republic/EU?

Of course. Companies and individuals from all over the world can send us orders. Shipments are usually sent via parcel service, e.g. DPD, UPS.

How can I send you a query for production/services and how does it work?

The best way is by e-mail or by filling out the form on our website. You can contact us by phone or make an appointment to visit us in person. We will send you a quotation with all the agreed parameters and payment details based on your data. After you confirm it, the product is manufactured and we inform you about the shipment details.
