3D printing

Advanced Manufacturing - Industrial 3D Printing

3Q MACHINING provides a range of high-quality 3D printing services, including FDM, SLA, SLS and SLM. This allows for the 3D printing of plastics and metals, and provides options for both prototyping and production.

3D printing is a great way to create one-off parts or small batches, and can be used to create complex geometries that could not be realised using traditional manufacturing processes.

Advantages of 3D Printing

3D PRINTING MATERIAL

1 Affordability
: Since 3D printing uses only the required material and needs no tooling, it is one of the most affordable manufacturing processes for one-off parts or small batches.

2 geometries: 
trongse 3D printers create parts layer by layer using a computer-controlled nozzle, they can be used to create highly complex shapes, including complex interior geometries.

3 Efficiency
: Once a part has been designed using CAD software, it can be printed in a matter of hours, without a lengthy setup procedure.

4 Adaptability: 
Because 3D printed parts require no tooling, there is less risk involved when creating a part. If a fault is discovered after printing, it can be amended digitally without the need to replace expensive tooling.

5 Environmental factors
: Although 3D printers require power to operate, there is generally no material wastage involved. Sub-tractive processes like machining, on the other hand, produce waste material.
