GPI Prototype Presents Additive Manufacturing technologies at Design & Manufacturing Texas

March 9, 2012 - GPI Prototype announced that it is showcasing and presenting its additive manufacturing capabilities at the Design & Manufacturing Texas show in Fort Worth, Texas March 14-15, 2012.  GPI Prototype will be available to answer questions regarding additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping at booth 1127.  GPI will also be exhibiting at NPE 2012 in Orlando, Florida from April 2-5, 2012 at booth 65039.  GPI is committed to showcasing additive technology at industry events and informing customers of the benefits and cost savings of additive manufacturing.

DMLS offers many advantages vs traditional tooling including the ability to manufacture complex geometries and shapes not possible with CNC machining. In addition conformal cooling channels can be integrated into designs to dramatically reduce cycle and lead times and lower costs.

GPI offers 5 material choices for DMLS including Stainless Steel (PH1), Stainless Steel (GP1), Cobalt Chrome (MP1), Maraging Steel (MS1) & Nickel Alloy (IN718).  GPI is also in the testing phase for Titanium Alloy (Ti-64) & Aluminum (ALSi10mg) and will offer those materials later in the year. Parts can be built in 20 micron layers with a turnaround time of a few days.

The GPI booth will showcase a variety of samples made via Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) along with parts made from other processes including SLS, SLA & FDM.  Visitors can learn about material properties and the advantages / disadvantages of each process. Complex tooling will also be on display offering a close up view of conformal cooling channels used to reduce injection molding cycle times.

Additional services include 3D Printing (3DP), Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV), Investment Casting, Tooling, CNC Machining, Finishing, Laser Scanning & Manufacturing/Packaging solutions. These services are priced very competitively in the industry while providing the best in quality and customer service.
