We have worked extensively in the Defence industry offering the latest tough materials for defence prototypes and short production run requirements. Customers can perform full testing in rigorous defence environments. With complex designs often impossible to produce any way other than Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing, rapid prototyping offers significant development opportunities.
A member of ADS, we have exhibited at various defence shows including DSEi and have supplied services in plastic and metals for one off concept models up to low volume production runs for a range of defence prototypes.
Our extensive range of materials offers customers the opportunity to construct their parts in a material that matches specific qualities they require. With the introduction of high resolution metal sintering we can also offer parts in stainless steel and aluminium, with the same level of complex design potential that is available in SLA and SLS.
ISO 9001 registration ensures a consistent level of service and quality throughout, and with tight project deadlines and high part quality requirements a norm, LPE can deliver anything from an initial concept model to fully functional prototype components and short production runs.

Key Technologies in Defence Prototypes
“Stereolithography models allow us to do production intents within days. On one project alone it saved us £100,000 in tooling costs and reduced the lead time from 7 months to 7 days”
