Additive manufacture, also referred to as 3D printing and rapid prototyping, is ideal for a cost effective proof of design before further methods of manufacture.
 
Dependent upon geometry, this method is fantastic for 1 or 2 off prototypes which can then be used as aesthetic models and masters for vacuum casting.
 
PDR offers a variety of finishing services to suit each specification requirement - please see below for the explanations. If you would like further details, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you on the various options available to suit your project needs.

Part Finishing:

Raw
Components are supplied in their natural state off the machines.
 
Spray Painting
Components are hand finished by our team of experts to remove all build lines.
Paint sheens available include: high gloss, matte, satin, eggshell and clear lacquer.
Colours are matched from Pantone and RAL charts.
Logos and details can be applied using transfer prints.
 
Textured
Specified VDI matches replicated a spark injection moulded tool.
Bead blasting of the raw SLA parts is also available.
 
Nano-crystalline Metalising
Nano- crystalline metalising is the process whereby electrolysis is used to coat a 3D printed or vacuum cast part with metal.
Any thickness of metal coating can be applied to the parts; a typical coating would be about 0.15mm thick (150 microns).
Coatings available: Gold, Copper, Chrome, Nickel with surface finishes including high gloss and brushed effect.
