Sylatech uses 3D printing to produce sample metal prototype parts for its customers, allowing them to test their designs without having to invest in tooling ahead of investment casting. This yields significant time and cost savings as fewer tooling modifications are necessary.
Our investment cast rapid prototyping capability enables the creation of 3-dimensional parts through an additive, layer-by-layer build process. Due to the way the material is added by a precise computer guided applicator, the technique is often referred to as 3D printing.
Working with STL or SLC models we can deliver a physical metal investment cast prototype part to our customers within 5 days. This affords designers and engineers the ability to have actual components to test and validate their design fit.
Our 3D prototyping capabilities, coupled with our investment casting process, delivers high accuracy castings with ultra-fine detail and smooth surface finish. Rapid prototype components can also be CNC machined as required.
