SLS – Selective Labor 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.
The technology of adding material by laser has the capacity of constructing parts with complex geometries, giving liberty to the engineers and designers to build pieces which in normal manufacturing it would be impossible to construct. Material with datasheet allowing the developer to test the prototypes, comparing them with other types of raw material.
- Quick execution;
- Low cost;
- High degree of project complexity;
- Excellent finishing;
SLA – Stereolithography
With the mathematical model of the product the liquid resin is cured by laser and the layer is formed by layer.
The workpiece finish is given by the resolution that applies to the system and ranges from 25, 50, and 100 microns.
With a diversity of materials that can simulate engineering materials. They vary in hardness and flexibility, resistant to high and low temperature and with color diversities.
In this technology it is possible to have insights about your product and even use it as a final material of your product if the scale of production allows.
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.
FE – Stamp Tool
Process that elaborates stamping tools with complex geometry to produce prototype sheet metal with the details of the project that can be used for tests and assemblies.
MI – Injection Mould
Intelligent, fast and low cost solution that allows the reproduction of parts with the use of the definitive material in the final injection process.
Also indicated to cover eventual production starts.
MS – Silicone Mould
The silicone mold is made from a model drawn through high speed and CNC machine. This mold is injected with polyurethane that will simulate the part material that can be assembled and pre-tested.
Considered a revolution in prototyping, it combines perfection in detail with the rapidity in reproduction of parts at low draft for field testing.
After making the mold it is possible to produce some polyurethane fragments. For the surface treatment, a dye can be obtained through the resin or paint dye.
With the use of high-tech Blue-Led (approximately 2,000 measuring points every 2 seconds) allows non-contact measurement, both in parts with many elements, and in thin and fragile objects. It is a process that uses methodologies in RPS and makes the conferences with the mathematical files in 3D, creating flyers and showing the variants of the prototype.
- Quality control, inspection and documentation;
- Comparison of current measurement data with the nominal data for the CAD file;
- Shape construction;

- Reverse engineering;
- 3D scanning;
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, etc
