New solutions in Rapid Prototyping
Low volume, customised production and prototyping has received a high level of interest over the past few years and as such is a very innovation and evolving area in which to work. However, the constant development means that it is often difficult to remain conversant with current capabilities. This is where Plunkett Associates can help; operating exclusively in this field it is a day to day necessity to be familiar with the options and capabilities that are out there.
Alternative powders for Laser Sintering has been another long term quest that has recently come to fruition with Plunkett Associates working with T2M to distribute Innov powders from Exceltec within the UK. Currently offering Innov 1550 (nylon) and Innov 2550 (filled nylon) these materials offer some considerable advantages over the standard powders from the equipment suppliers.
The area of micro parts has also received much attention. However this is usually directed at high volume production solutions, leaving a need to prototype and deliver low volume solutions. This area is expected to continue growing and remains the source of much interest.
