3D Print Production

Efficient, economical, effective – 3D print production

Additive manufacturing has enabled companies to bring a product to market much more efficiently and more cost-effectively than ever before. Traditionally, to bring a product to market or a component into the workspace would require lengthy developments, high costs and could lose momentum with slow production times.

3D printing can now be utilised for batch production as an alternative to traditional methods like injection moulding. By using additive manufacturing to 3D print parts products can be created faster, without setup fees.

Use IPF Ltd’s 3d printing service for your plastic parts and utilise the advantages of low volume production in high performing nylon (PA12), Ultem, Polycarbonate (PC) and many more.

UK Based 3D Print Production Service

3D printing has enabled companies to bring a product to market much more efficiently and more cost-effectively than ever before. IPF are proprietors of a top-of-the-range 3D printing studio as well as a full machining and fabrication zone, and it’s one that is more than capable of taking care of clients’ requirements.

We now use 3D printing for batch production as an alternative to traditional methods like injection moulding. With 3D-printing, products can be created faster, without setup fees.

How it can benefit our clients:

  • Flexible – 3D printing allows for the design and print of more complex designs than traditional manufacturing processes, which have certain design restrictions.
  • Speed – 3D printing is faster than fabrication.  The initial STL or CAD files can be created print-ready and can manufacture parts within hours, which also boosts the prototyping process. Each stage is made faster and any design modification can be done more efficiently.
  • Compact – Materials and inventory for 3D printing don’t take up much space, and the speed of turnaround means you don’t need to print in bulk.  The 3D design files are stored digitally and can be located and printed when needed.
  • Greener – 3D production only requires the materials needed for the part itself, with little or no wastage: this saves on resources and material costs.
  • Versatile materials – 3D printing materials – including high performing nylon (PA12), Ultem, Polycarbonate (PC) and more – are light, tough, and can be tailored to offer benefits such as resistance to heat and water.
  • No-fuss – The single-step process of 3D printing saves time and money. A 3D printer can be set up and left to run without an operator needing to hover over it the whole time.

IPF is a one-stop shop for your prototyping and batch production projects.
