Axis provides fully finished functional prototypes to many toy prototype manufacturers in North America. Companies specializing in toy manufacturing enjoy many benefits when integrating rapid prototyping in their development cycle.
Given that, the majority of consumer products are made of plastic, 3D printing has proved to be an excellent solution for prototyping and manufacturing purposes as well as to repair broken or missing parts.
Additive Manufacturing has two major benefits. It bridges the gap between prototype and full production. In addition to this, it also suppresses the tooling costs.
SLA is a fast way to get smooth and accurate models made from a variety of photopolymers, allowing for different physical properties at a low cost. It is best suited for prototypes, moulds and casting patterns as well as scale / exhibition models.
SLS is commonly used to build strong and durable prototypes, low-volume production or even wax patterns for foundries. Because no support is needed in this process, very complex and interlocking parts can be built.
FDM printed parts are used for functional testing and engineering applications. The high performance thermoplastic materials it uses allow for great properties, opening the door to rapid manufacturing amongst and other applications.
Polyjet has the unique ability to print an array of rigid plastics and soft rubbers all in the same part, just like overmolds do. Its 30 μm layers make very fine details and realistic textures possible for any part
Scanning allows for object replication. We offer scanning services through a portable optical CMM 3D scanner, the MetraSCAN 3D.
The purpose of the finishing process is to ensure that your prototype has the look and feel you want. Our expert makers and finishers will cater to all your needs.
In need of a technician to help design a prototype? Look no further! Our professional experts will assist you during every step of the project.
