Manufacturing Processes & 3D Printing Solutions

No matter where your projects may lie on the production cycle, GoProto’s manufacturing processes and 3D printing solutions will take them up a notch.

We strive to make sure our 3D printing solutions are among the newest in the industry. Within our manufacturing processes, we use injection tooling and molding, laser sintering, and additive and subtractive processes. Most importantly, with all of our services, we handle your projects with the utmost care.

Trust GoProto for not only the finest advancements in technology, but the finest advancements in service. Need a quote on a project? Contact us today!

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.

Direct Metal Laser Melting

DMLM

One of the most exciting innovations in 3D printing is Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM). This additive process delivers parts with highly complex geometries in metals such as titanium, stainless steel and aluminium in no time at all.  Whether prototype or end-use parts, think GoProto for your DMLM needs.

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.

polyjet 3d printing

POLYJET (PJ)

The additive workhorse Polyjet uses UV light to cure deposited liquid photopolymers and delivers precision finish parts for your form/fit testing needs. Not for use in all mechanical applications but is a good value option for quick-turn projects.

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

RAPID INJECTION TOOLING

What if you need Injection Moulded parts but must have them super-fast.  We at GoProto specialise in extremely quick turnaround cost effective metal tooling for injection moulded parts.  The tools are typically machined from steel and can handled tens of thousands of parts.

custom injection tooling

CUSTOM INJECTION TOOLING

If your project calls for intricate parts or high quantities?   Our GoProto custom injection tooling solution delivers production plastics and elastomeric materials to meet the most demanding requirements. Our decades of experience means fast, world-class quality parts, regardless of complexity.


“Hey Guys, Hope all is well! I just received the sheet metal parts and assembled them onto the prototype it belongs to and it’s perfect! Just wanted to let you know you guys did a great job!” — Daren (design engineering company)
