concept modeling

MULTI-JET FUSION (MJF)

2D printing giants HP™ have jumped into our 3D space in a big way with Multi Jet Fusion (MJF). This revolutionary new technology heat-fuses parts at the voxel (volumetric-pixel) level, resulting in rapidly manufactured parts with both superior finishes and mechanical strength.  The HP process uses actual engineering polymers to produce high performance parts (Nylon PA11, PA12 & PA12GF).

fused deposition modeling

FUSED DEPOSITION MODELLING (FDM)

When material properties are critical, the timeless favourite, FDM may fit the bill.  While this thermoplastic option won’t deliver superior-grade finishes or accuracy, it is a tough workhorse that can deliver specific requirements and handle environmental abuse.

Selective Laser Sintering

SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING (SLS)

Need parts that can stand up to the elements? Selective Laser Sintering might be just the thing. SLS is a layer-by-layer 3D printing process producing durable nylon parts. Not as fast or smooth as other processes but delivers end-use parts with the best of them.

machining

MACHINING (CNC)

Machining is a subtractive process that uses 3 and 5 axis milling machines to produce parts from billet metal or solid blocks of plastic.  Machined parts are durable, produced in production materials, highly accurate and have a superb surface finish.  They can be painted or polished to create highly cosmetic or clear prototypes or parts used for production.

stereolithography

STEREOLITHOGRAPHY (SLA)

The grandfather of modern rapid prototyping, SLA gets you quality parts at a great price.  A laser-based, additive process, SLA delivers highly accurate photopolymer parts with a quality surface finish.  Can produce optically clear parts as well as highly durable parts.  However thermal properties above 100 degrees start to fall away.

injection molding

INJECTION MOULDING

Injection moulding plastic or rubber parts can be a difficult challenge without the right partner. GoProto’s deep industry experience will deliver quality parts ensuring consistency and accuracy for every production run.

rapid injection tooling

TOOLMAKING

Our GoProto injection tooling service delivers production plastics and elastomeric materials to meet the most demanding requirements. The tools are typically machined from steel and can handled tens of thousands of parts. Our decades of experience means fast, world-class quality parts, regardless of complexity.
