There is a tendency to think small when it comes to 3D Printing. It's good to step back and look at how long the industry has been here.
Valencia, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
Solid Concepts will showcase their full product solutions line at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing tradeshow in February, including their aerospace production manufacturing and materials, medical cast urethane production offerings, and full range of application and 3D Printing solutions.
“There is a tendency to think small when it comes to the capabilities of 3D Printing,” says Vice President Marketing, Scott McGowan. “It’s good to step back and look at how long the industry has been here. Look at the larger scale, the larger format, of many of these 3D Printing industrial systems. Creators, inventors, and makers can start looking beyond small desktop 3D printers and consider what is achievable on the industrial scale with service providers that have decades of experience.”
Solid Concepts is the largest dedicated provider of additive manufacturing/ 3D Printing, cast urethanes, tooling and injection molding services in North America and has equipment that can 3D print a single part as large as 3’ x 2’ x 3’. With seven facilities spanning the United States, AS9100 and ISO 9001 certifications and a Federal Firearms License, Solid Concepts is on the leading edge of innovative manufacturing in industries spanning from consumer to military.
Solid Concepts is transforming the 3D Printing and custom manufacturing industry, rapidly evolving widespread perceptions of the purposes and capabilities of 3D Printing via
- A 3D Printed air duct certified and tagged by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which is currently on a repurposed DC-10 aircraft
- A 3D Printed fuel tank and ailerons on a low-cost test platform UAV being used by NASA for inexpensive commercial flight and aircraft research
- Medical and environmental applications permeating the industrial and consumer market in prototype and production form
- And the successful production and firing of the world’s first 3D Printed Metal Gun.
Solid Concepts’ custom manufacturing product line includes PolyJet™ high-precision 3D printing, Stereolithography® (SLA), 3D Color Printing, Selective Laser Sintering® (SLS), Additive Metal Manufacturing (AMM), Fused Deposition Modeling® (FDM), ID-Light™ lightweight parts, CNC machining, QuantumCast™ advanced cast urethanes, and Composites. These technologies allow for low-volume production of plastic, urethane, and metal components directly from design data, resulting in inexpensive prototypes or one-offs delivered in days. Solid Concepts additionally provides tooling and injection molding services to carry products from prototypes to mass production. The company will showcase their full range of custom solutions and offers representatives at the show ready to expand on the proficiency and potential of Solid Concepts product offerings.
