Rapid manufacturing bureau service now available from Laser Lines

23 April 2012

Following twenty years of experience distributing Stratasys systems in the additive manufacturing industry throughout the UK and Ireland, Laser Lines is now offering customers a bureau service for rapid prototyped and rapid manufactured parts using FDM (fused deposition modelling) technology.

Laser Lines Ltd has fifteen in-house systems building prototypes from functional engineering grade thermoplastic materials including ABS, PC-ABS and polycarbonate. Medical applications are also possible using ABSi and PC-ISO. Parts can also be built in Ultem 9085 which is a high performance flight approved thermoplastic and PPSF a high temperature and chemically resistant thermoplastic.

All of these materials are available up to a size of 914 x 610 x 914mm which is currently the largest commercially available build envelope.

With a focus not only on concept and form, fit and function models, Laser Lines specialise in offering rapid manufacturing for low volume production parts, typically for quantities of 100 or less, avoiding the need for mould tools that are expensive and have a long lead time.

The materials are also best suited to manufacturing tools such as jig, fixture and work holding applications offering a cost effective and rapid turnaround of three to four days compared with the weeks and months of a traditionally manufactured component.

All Stratasys’ materials are batch traceable - currently, the only additive manufacturing technology that can offer this.  This enables Laser Lines to provide customers with inspection reports and Certificate of Conformity for all rapid manufactured parts, if required.

If you would like to utilise Laser Lines' bureau service email your .igs or .stl files to parts@laserlines.co.uk and you will be sent a quotation the same day.
