Rapid Prototyping Services
Creatingway offers more rapid prototyping services including stereolithography (SLA) , selective laser sintering (SLS) and CNC machining parts service. We are pride of our product quality, delivering on-time and professional engineering team support in fluent English communication each other.
Additional CNC Machining Prototype
CNC machining prototype process to machining more stronger and precise parts including plastic and metal. For more CNC machining process in details, you can view our CNC machining parts.
Plastic CNC machining prototype material such as Nylon, PC, PMMA, POM, PP and UPE etc.
Metal materials is same as CNC machining parts such as Stainless steel, Copper, Bronze, Aluminum etc.
We offer secondary machining processes such as drilling, polishing, welding, etc and finishing service including anodizing, powering, etc to make the prototype aesthetic as you like.
SLA (Stereolithography) is an additive technology which uses UV light to cure a photopolymer, layer to layer stacking to one plastic solid with good resolution. SLA parts are accurate and smooth surface finishing available, most of SLA parts is not stronger enough, but it can be used for product of structural parts as master mold building purposed or models.
Build Volume: 450x450x350mm
Pericison tolerance: ± 0.1mm
Materials: Accura ABS resin, PC etc, others as requested.
Advantage of SLA process: accuracy, design flexibility
Disvantage of SLA process: material flexibility, material costs, production speed
SLS ( Selective Laser Sintering) is similar to SLA process, SLS uses a laser fusing or sintering a powdered material PA or PA+GF or Alloy via highly accurate computer controlled laser. Using a laser as the power source to sinter powdered material it binds the material together to create a solid structure. It is a convenient as well as a cost-effective way to make prototypes as well as finished products. The parts need little post process finishing and are suitable for a wide range of applications.
Advantage of SLS process: accuracy, design flexibility, material flexibility, material cost
Disadvantage of SLS: manufacturing costs, production speed
Building size: 330x280x420mm
Precision tolerance: ±0.1mm
Materials: PA12 (polyamide), PA12+GF, PA12+Alloy, others as requested.
SLA and SLA Prototyping Tolerances
SLA prototype: Resolution of SLA rapid prototyping varies from 0.05mm to 0.15mm with the industry average tolerance around 0.1mm.
SLS prototype:similar SLA tolerance.
If a customer needs a tight tolerance in a particular area, they can specify this in a 2D PDF, and we will machine or finish the part to suit.
Secondary Machining Process
Creatingway offers more secondary finishing service to meet customers needs like painting, silk-screen etc in order to make the product aesthetic as customers needs, and provide more good solutions for good quality. please kindly visit our product finishing service in details.
