Could Metal Plated 3D Prints Answer Your Needs?

Could Metal Plated 3D Prints Answer Your Needs?

One of the most important properties of a 3D print is its strength. Unfortunately, many 3D printing processes produce great parts, but with limited strength. This constrains the use of some prints to controlled prototypes, artistic works or visual inspection.

One way around these limits is to simply print your part in metal instead of plastic. However, 3D printed metal parts are still quite expensive.

Cambridge Uni, prototype part development

Working in tandem with 3D Parts Ltd, TMG are opening up this cornucopia of manufacturing excellence to the wider world. 3D Parts' Andy Allshorn explained how the project came together: "I have had the pleasure of working with TMG for more than 10 years, since being involved in the original setup of the SLA room and training Toyota F1's internal staff. They soon excelled with this technology and implemented their own lean production processes, which made the facility even more efficient. Last year I was approached by TMG and asked how we could work together to offer these facilities to UK companies! The resulting outcome is an even stronger business relationship and the formation of 3D-Parts Ltd....
