Advanced Prototype Molding
Our team of experts can help you from start to finish with your prototype molding applications.
PolyJet printing accommodates the use of multiple materials of different colors, transparencies, and mechanical/physical properties, which allows for greater detail and complexity in prototypes. The process also boasts accuracies down to 0.014 millimeters. Some of the products commonly produced through PolyJet printing include high-accuracy tooling such as fixtures, jigs, and molds.
At this time, Advanced Prototype Molding is open and fully operational. We are dedicated to the safety and health of our employees and customers, and we will continue to monitor the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and carefully follow the guidelines put forth by the state and federal government.
Stereolithography (SLA) is one of the most widely used rapid prototyping techniques. It uses light-sensitive liquid polymers to produce lightweight prototypes suitable for visual/conceptual demonstrations and presentations, limited functional testing, and casting pattern applications.
Next, an oven heats the mold to a high enough temperature that the powder liquefies and evenly coats the interior of the mold. During this process, a machine rocks the entire form about two axes, which helps regulate the distribution of the liquid.
