GPI Prototype to present Additive Manufacturing technologies at Amerimold Expo in Rosemont, Illinois

GPI Prototype announced that it will showcase and present its additive manufacturing capabilities at the Amerimold Expo in Rosemont, Illinois on April 13th-14th 2011.  GPI Prototype will be located at booth 234 and be available to answer questions regarding additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping.  GPI will also be exhibiting at the EASTEC 2011 Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts from May 17th-19th 2011 at booth 5612.  GPI is committed to showcasing additive technology at industry events and informing customers of the benefits and cost savings of additive manufacturing.

On Thursday April 14th, 2011 at the Amerimold Expo, Tim Ruffner from GPI Prototype will present "Rapid Tooling and Conformal Cooling with DMLS" at the Additive Manufacturing Conference Track.  The presentation will begin with a general overview of the DMLS process and move on to examine conformal cooling and the freedom of design it offers.  Primary benefits discussed will center on cycle time and waste reduction, improved part quality, increased productivity, and overall cost savings.  The presentation will conclude with pros and cons of DMLS vs conventional manufacturing and present real world examples of DMLS technology.

GPI Prototype has been a leader in the Prototyping Industry with its Direct Metal Laser Sintering – DMLS capabilities using the EOSINT M 270 DMLS machine from EOS.  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 8 material choices for DMLS including Stainless Steel, Cobalt Chrome, Maraging Steel, Bronze Alloy, Titanium Alloy, Aluminum & Nickel Alloy.  Parts can be built in 20 micron layers with a turnaround time of a few days.

3D Printing is also offered by GPI using Objet’s 3D Printer.  This top of the line printer can produce parts in 16 micron layers in multiple durometers or digital blends for outstanding detail and eliminate the traditional stair effect that is problematic with Stereolithography.  For a wide range of applications 8 FullCure resins are available in both rigid and soft varieties.

Top-quality, accurate, clean prototypes can be built in hours and shipped to the customer in a few days.

Additional services include 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.
