SLA is the most accurate process for fit/form prototypes, and to verify a design before committing to full production. Its high accuracy and good surface finish make it the best choice for design models, fit-check verification models and master patterns for silicone rubber molds.
SLA technology builds parts by using light from a laser to solidify liquid plastic resin. InterPRO’s SLA material choices include ABS-like, PP-like, PC-like, clear, rigid or flexible, high-strength or high temperature resistant.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) produces exceptionally strong functional parts using engineered plastic materials including ABS, PC, and ULTEM. Parts made using the FDM process are stable and quite accurate, making them ideal for fixtures and low-volume production.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is the rapid prototyping technology of choice for direct digital manufacturing (DDM) of products requiring heat resistance, strength and good surface finish. SLS is great for both functional prototypes and end-use components, including those with snap fits, living hinges and other mechanical joints. The SLS process employs a high power laser to fuse plastic powders layer by layer.
PolyJet technology produces models and prototypes with good precision, excellent surface features and fine detail. This ink-jet printing process is capable of creating over 90 ‘digital materials’ with properties ranging from Shore A 25 up to Shore A 90 durometer.
Metal 3D printing fabricates metal parts directly from CAD files, using a high-powered laser to fuse metal powder into a solid part, one layer at a time.
The parts have mechanical properties very similar to wrought materials, with a fully dense, homogenous structure.
Custom Presentation Models
InterPRO’s skilled model makers will turn your idea into a beautiful, professionally painted model, making you ready for that important presentation.
Cast Urethane Prototypes
Cast urethane prototypes offer properties that closely match injection molded parts, from very soft to extremely rigid and impact resistant. Tooling costs are very low, and deliveries are very fast. These are functional prototypes with cast-in color, complex features and excellent accuracy and surface finish. Flame-resistant, UL-rated, biocompatible and clear materials are also available.
You need 200 to 20,000 injection-molded parts as quickly as possible. Bridge tooling helps you bridge this gap between prototyping and high volume production.
Our injection molding team has decades of experience in mold design, mold build and production. We will help you determine which prototyping and production process will be right for your project, and help you optimize your design for molding and product performance.
CNC machining is the best choice for prototyping of high-quality metal and plastic parts requiring the very high accuracy, excellent surface finishes and specific material properties.
InterPRO provide custom 3D printing, prototyping and manufacturing services to companies in aerospace,
medical, computer, consumer products, electronics, industrial machinery and other industries.
Our team offers 25 years of 3D printing and additive manufacturing experience.
Received these parts and wow, well done the appearance is perfect and the parts work great too! Direct quote from our VP of Engineering "this is the best looking thing I've ever seen!" Top notch stuff, thanks for hitting the lead time on the head too.
