Rapid Prototyping

Trust the experts, and save time. Our global 3D Printing service offering spans from proof of concept to series production. We take rapid prototyping seriously and work with you to select the best material and production method for your application. Our EU and US-based operations specialize in metal Additive Manufacturing with world class capabilities in Laser Powder Bed Fusion. In the EU we also have specialists in SLS and CLIP prototyping and extend the offering even further with AM ceramics and several conventional casting, milling and molding processes such as injection molding. Our industrial component production facilities are ISO 9001 and AS/EN9100 certified.
