Manufacturing has greatly improved over the years and has become increasingly ‘digital’ due to 3D printing technology. This technology has already changed how companies design and produce manufactured goods. Various industries (aerospace, automotive, manufacturing) have already made the switch to 3D printing for faster and more reliable prototypes and production parts. At Agile Manufacturing, we provide the highest quality 3D printers and 3D printing services in Toronto to cater your printing needs.
Agile Manufacturing is a well-known 3D printing service bureau in Toronto. Many businesses rely on our services and printing products for their prototyping, design, and production needs. It is crucial to have a reliable manufacturing service bureau for your business. Agile Manufacturing is your one stop shop for all things 3D printing and manufacturing.
What is 3D Printing?
3D Printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of building parts or objects layer-by-layer using a three-dimension technology from a digital CAD file. Each layer can be seen as a thinly sliced cross-section of the object. 3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing (CNC) which is cutting out a piece of metal or plastic. 3D printing technology enables you to produce complex shapes that are otherwise un-able to be built using any other manufacturing method.
Why do businesses require 3D Printing services in Toronto?
In short, 3D printing is fast and relatively low cost. From design to manufacturing, a prototype can be delivered in a matter of days. Where 3D printing excels is in rapid prototyping. Businesses can take advantage of 3D printing services in Toronto for short to medium runs and batch sizes. 3D printing greatly reduces the time to get the first version of a product and makes it possible to print complex geometries and interlocking parts that require no assembly.
Stereolithography (SLA) is a 3D printing process where UV light and photopolymer resin are used to make printable parts. The resin is cured by the laser which hardens the plastic. These layers are made at high speed, making SLA a great option for rapid prototyping.
