Available from Crescent Industries Inc.
Crescent Industries offers 3D printing services for plastic components for use with product design and development, R&D design, and as prototypes, samples and small production runs. These 3D printed models are produced with production grade thermoplastics so painting, gluing, sanding, drilling and bonding with other 3D printed parts can be completed just like any plastic component.
Our 3D printer system produces ultra-fine details for parts with complex geometries, smooth surface finishes and thin walls down to 0.6mm or 0.024”. It can also manufacture components with functional living hinges.
Net build size is 19.3" x 15.35" x 7.9" with a layer thickness that includes horizontal build layers down to 0.0006 inches (or 16 Microns) and a build resolution of 600 dpi for the X & Y axis and 1600 dpi for the Z axis.
The benefits of our 3D printed parts include:
Product Design Review for fixing potential problems or concerns before the mold or production begins. Changes can be discussed and decided today and have a tangible part for review tomorrow.
Provides a component for visualization, discussion during project kick-off meetings for overall improvement in manufacturing, production and quality.
Ability to set up quality inspection parameters prior to production runs eliminating the delay during production for this process.
Ability to manufacture product fixtures prior to production runs.
Provide end of arm tooling quickly prior to production runs.
