As a highly specialised prototyping and Additive Manufacturing company, we are a one-stop-shop with the skills, know-how and capacity to manufacture prototype and production parts for low volume production, without the need for expensive capital investment on tooling.
Additive Manufacturing of Production Parts
Our 3D Printing technologies include FDM, SLA, SLS, Polyjet and Figure 4, which can all be used for Additive Manufacturing of prototype and production parts in a range of materials, with part finishing options. These finishes include:
- Ready drilled
- Smooth or textured surface
- Plain, polished or painted finish
Please visit our Finishing page for more information.
Why use Prototype Projects for your production part additive manufacturing?
The key benefit we bring is not in volume manufacturing or speed – but in the use of 3D printing for relatively low-cost production of manufacture-ready parts in low volume without the need for expensive dedicated machine tooling.
Using 3D printing to make production parts frees you from the constraints of conventional part manufacture.
It is faster overall because of the lack of a requirement for specialised production tooling. In fact, production component parts can be specifically designed for manufacture using 3D printing techniques.
We can also manufacture low volumes of production parts using CNC milling, machining, lathing and turning processes.
Our suite of modern CNC machines can be set to produce any number of identical precision production parts from metal or plastic for use in final manufacturing or assembly.
