The 3D printer, also known as additive manufacturing, industry continues to show signs of growth. Strong growth in investment casting and 3D printers used in additive manufacturing are driving service providers like In’Tech Industries to expand its line of stereolithography systems. In’Tech recently added another 3D Systems IPro 8000 SLA System, beyond the 12 existing SLA systems already in place.
In’Tech VTM Operations Manager Randy Stevens noted that because of this growth and demand of quick cast investment patterns, SLA downtime must be kept to a minimum to handle the service requests.
In’Tech expanded its material offerings in the fourth quarter of 2011 with the introduction of 3D Systems’ latest resin “CastPro.” This SLA casting resin features improved thin wall drainage, strong dimensional stability and strength for quick cast patterns. “CastPro’s considerable green strength also supports our ability to produce high quality patterns quickly and consistently for customer demands,” Stevens explained.
In addition to its leading presence in the injection molding, rapid prototyping and engineering and tooling sectors, In’Tech is also provides high tolerance medical and dental components.
