The very latest advances in Selective Laser Manufacturing (SLM) takes metal 3D printing to new levels.

SEEING THE WORLD IN 3D

Metal 3D printing is a fusion created by taking complex design capability and converting to an output deliverable that consists of completed tools, components, or tool inserts. This unique and symbiotic fusion facilitates shortened production times, reduced component stress during manufacture, and provides tool life extension. The very latest advances in Selective Laser Manufacturing (SLM) takes metal 3D printing to …

What’s the benefit of machined prototypes? - Freeform Technology Blog

WHAT’S THE BENEFIT OF MACHINED PROTOTYPES?

Prototyping is a tried and trusted early production method that facilitates manufacture of components that are often termed ‘beta’. Beta components enable testing, trialling and evaluation prior to any larger production run or finalised machining of the end-product or component. By producing an initial machined prototype, costs of early production are minimised whilst simultaneously providing increased scope to change, test …

We work closely with each individual client towards producing tailor made composite components and sub-assemblies.

ENGINEERING SUCCESS THROUGH COMPOSITE COMPONENTS

The pareto principle is a mathematical rule of broad interpretation that states that 20% of what you do results in 80% of your outcomes. In Formula 1 its amazingly close to the ratio of composite component parts versus weight. Race cars are constructed using close to over 80% of hybrid composite components which adds to only 20% of the overall …
