New Division Creates Overnight Prototypes
VALENCIA, Calif.--Solid Concepts, a supplier of rapid prototyping, direct digital manufacturing, tooling, and injection molding services, has expanded its outsourcing services to meet the growing needs of design engineers in a broad spectrum of industries, ranging from aerospace to automotive, medical, and electronics assembly, among others. The expansion is centered on a rapid prototyping service and its corresponding website, www.ZoomRP.com, which provides a three-step process for designers to acquire fast access to prototypes.
If an order is placed by 5:00 p.m. EST, the finished part can be built and shipped for morning delivery the following day. The company expects to expand from its use of the standard, rigid white prototype material into "whole other spectrums of fast, available prototypes, using a variety of materials and colors" in the following months.
Solid Concepts uses high-speed PolyJetTM technology to provide prototypes quickly and reliably, the company reports. The PolyJet system builds parts in 16-micron layers with exceptional detail and edge visualization, and is suitable for high-quality prototypes and master patterns. PolyJet prototypes are best-suited for applications in which accuracy, detail, and surface finish are critical and the part fits within a 5-inch x 5-inch x 5-inch build volume. The maximum PolyJet build volume is said to be 19.3 inches x 15.4 inches x 7.9 inches.
