Model Making & PROTOTYPES
United can make models of any kind from small, intricate thin-wall models and masters to complex, thick-wall models for function, fit or form.
We can engineer and build models to your specifications. Using materials ranging from wood, plastic, through space age alloys, we can work with you to meet your toughest requirements.
Rapid Prototyping utilizing CAD solid models, takes virtual designs from CAD or modeling software. The data is sliced into very thin cross section layers and then successive layers are created until the model is complete.
United Industries offers the following Rapid Prototyping Technologies:
- Selective Laser Sintering (SLS): Base materials – thermoplastics, metals, powders
- Stereo-lithography (SLA): Base materials - photo-polymer
- Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM): Base materials – coated paper, plastic, metal
Advantage: Rapid Prototyping Technology can help you accelerate your design and manufacturing projects. Almost any shape or geometric feature can be created.
