Titan 1 & ProJet 1200
Both the Titan 1 and ProJet 1200 use digital light processing (DLP) 3D printing technology. These printers work with photo curable resins to produce highly detailed, intricate small parts for prototyping and casting applications. Additionally, the projection-based printing system allows for parts to be fabricated relatively quickly, compared to other 3D printing methods. The Titan 1, with a larger build volume, is capable of printing small to medium sized parts. The ProJet 1200 has a higher resolution than the Titan 1 but is only capable of printing very small parts. There are a range of materials including soft and translucent that are available for various applications. Please inquire for more information
The ProJet 660 is printer that produces full color and is fast as well as cost-effective for printing full 3D models of anatomy and biology from a variety of sources including MRI, CT scan, atomic force microscopy, electron and confocal microscopy, etc. The material is physically similar to bone, making it especially useful for skeletal models in a variety of applications. Models produced can be sanded, drilled, tappeda, and electroplated.
The ProJet 3500 is the highest resolution 3D printing system available that also provides durable and precise parts for testing, tooling, and final use. The printed material is USP Class VI certified for approved medical applications. It’s high-precision, large build area, and ability to produce mechanical assemblies make one of it the most versatile prototyping 3D printing options available.
The Prusa i3 MK2S and MK2S
The Prusa i3 MK2S and MK2S Multi-Material are 3D printers that employ FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) printing technology. They are best suited for quickly printing inexpensive plastic parts at a low to medium resolution, making them appropriate for early prototypes, and reproducing a variety of plastic hardware. Additionally, the multi-material upgrade allows printing in up to 4 different plastics simultaneously, allowing for multi-color models or models printed with soluble support material, which can facilitate more complex printed structures. The Prusa 3D printers support the following materials: PLA, ABS, PET, HIPS, Flex PP, Ninjaflex, Nylon, ASA, T-Glase, Carbon-fibers enhanced filaments, Polycarbonates.
Epilog Helix 24 Laser Cutter/Engraver
The Epilog Helix Laser Cutter is used for the rapid vector-cutting of a variety of plastics, rubbers, foams, as well as engraving a variety of materials such as anodized aluminum, plastics, wood, etc. It is mainly used for fabrication of plexiglass (acrylic) structures that can be assembled from planar sections cut in 2 dimensions, but can work with other material when needed.
Tormach PCNC1100 CNC Mil
The Tormach PCNC 1100 CNC can quickly and accurately machine parts from the largest variety of materials of any machine including plastics, aluminum, stainless steel. This is the most labor-intensive machine but produces the most production-ready parts. A 3D model is required to be supplied or generated separately as in all 3D printers, and rates provided assume this is supplied.
SCS Labcoter 2 – Parylene Deposition System
The SCS Labcoter 2 Coats any solid surface with a thin layer of parylene, on the order of several microns to tens of microns, which provides a translucent biocompatible, chemical, moisture, and dielectric barrier for a variety of applications.
