Additive Manufacturing | Rapid Manufacturing
LPE offer both the services range and the finishing capabilities to help you meet low volume production requirements. A cost effective solution for small quantities of highly customised products, additive manufacturing can assist in early market testing where runs of hundreds or thousands are required, allowing for any design errors to be identified prior to committing to tooling.
Rapid Manufacturing uses the technologies initial developed for Rapid Prototyping and has become known as Additive Manufacturing due to the “additive”layer process by which 3D objects are created. Short lead times, increased material range and the ability to create previously unimaginable geometries have all help to advance the spread of Additive Manufacturing.
The advent of Additive Manufacturing will have profound changes on the way products are designed in the future. Manufacture will no longer be constrained by the complexity of design or the availability and location of tooling. At LPE, we can help make this a reality for you and can very quickly advise if Rapid Manufacturing is a viable solution for you today.
