SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)
A technique which uses laser rays to cast, in a selective manner, powder materials as nylon with or without fiberglass. Starting from a file modeled by computer through engineering software, this 3D model begins to take shape when sent to the equipment allowing parts to be produced in lots.
FDM (Fusion Deposition Modeling)
Filaments of heated thermoplastic resin are extruded from a die in the shape of a point which moves on a plane X-Y.
FASTPARTS employs technology imported from Stratasys (USA), which makes used of ABS ass thermoplastic resin. With the latest generation technological attractions, it is acknowledged as being a low-cost process quick in making prototypes.
CNC (Computerized Numerical Control)
The resource of the prototype in a numerical control machine (regardless of the geometry) provides flexibility of forms and raw material in their greatest diversity, as RenShape resin, ABS, PU, MDF, EPS, nylon, acrylic, steel, aluminum, etcs.
MIP (Prototype Injection Mold)
An intelligent, quick and low-cost solution which allows parts to be reproduced with the use of the final material in the injection end process.
Indicated also for covering possible production starts.
FEP (Prototype Stamp Tool)
A process which prepares stamp tools with a complex geometry to produce a prototype in plate with the project details which can be used for tests and assembling.
VF (Vacuum Forming)
Thermoforming is indicated for reproducing prototyped parts which allow small thickness variances. It is widely used in prototyping refrigerator door panels, covers and drawers, having as main feature the use of the final material, thereby ensuring that they undergo rigorous field and laboratory tests.
LFV – Fiberglass Lamination
With CNC resources and specialized labor, this process allows the user to prepare models in the most varied shapes in materials as PU foam, MDF or resin.
Fiberglass reinforcement layers are applied in the models, interspersed with blankets and tissues impregnated with Polyester, Vinyl Ester or Epoxy resins, until the prototype takes its end form.
Hand lay-up until the ideal thickness is attained, this process is widely used in the automotive industry in usability tests.
With the use of the high technology of Blue-Led (with approximately 2,000 points of measurement every 2 seconds) it allows the measurement without contact, in both parts with many elements, and in fine and fragile objects. It is a process which uses methodologies in RPS and makes checks with the mathematical files in 3D, creating flyers and showing the variants of the prototype.
