3D Printing Service Provider

Are you looking for more than what a desktop printer can provide? Need functioning parts that behave with the mechanical properties of your production parts? At LPE we have invested in industrial 3D printing machines and offer a fast, accurate, repeatable service. Our additive manufacturing service allows for the delivery of complex functional prototypes or production parts within days across the UK and Ireland.

We offer four custom 3D printing processes in-house and we have over 25 available materials which means that we will be able to offer a solution to any of your manufacturing needs.

The 3D Printing Processes at LPE

  • Stereolithography (SLA)

    Stereolithography is one of the most accurate additive manufacturing technologies and it can be used to manufacture high resolution parts.

    SLA 3D Printed models are precise, finely detailed and offer exceptionally smooth surface quality.

  • Digital Light Processing (DLP)

    Digital Light Processing (DLP) offers ultra-high print speed along with new material chemistries that resemble production grade materials.

    DLP parts can be made quickly and with accuracy meaning they are ideal for functional prototyping and low volume production.

  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

    SLS is an additive manufacturing technology which is very suitable for manufacturing tough, durable prototypes as well as functional production parts.

    This process can accurately produce complex gemoetries and can be used to manufacture parts with excellent mechanical properties. Parts can be turned around very rapidly at competitive prices.

  • Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)

    Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is an additive manufacturing process that can be used to create fully functional, complex metal components.

    DMLS is often used when the geometry or structure of a part is not possible to create in any other metal manufacturing process. The ability to manufacture small parts with exceptionally fine detail provides design freedom which is not possible with traditional manufacturing methods.
