Psyber-Tech 3D Printing uses the latest in high-end desktop Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) 3D printing technology to 3D print strong, durable and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability possible.
With a wide range of materials in stock, Psyber-Tech 3D Printing offers a material choice that enables you to meet your requirements.
ABS plastic – ABS or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a common thermoplastic polymer typically used for injection molding applications. This engineering plastic is popular due to its low production cost and the ease with which the material is machined by plastic manufacturers.
PLA – Polylactic Acid is different than most thermoplastic polymers in that it is derived from renewable resources like corn starch or sugar cane. Most plastics, by contrast, are derived from the distillation and polymerization of nonrenewable petroleum reserves. Plastics that are derived from biomass (e.g. PLA) are known as bioplastics.
Polyamide (nylon) – The name “nylons” refers to the group of plastics known as ‘polyamides’. Nylons are typified by amide groups (CONH) and encompass a range of material types (e.g. Nylon 6,6; Nylon 6,12; Nylon 4,6; Nylon 6; Nylon 12 etc.), providing an extremely broad range of available properties. Nylon is used in the production of film and fibre, but is also available as a moulding compound.
Glass Filled Polyamide – The main characteristics of glass filled nylons are very high rigidity, high mechanical strength, a high degree of hardness and toughness, as well as high creep strength. They also have very high dimensional stability, good fatigue strength and high mechanical damping properties. All these properties make this material suitable for use in parts which are exposed to high static loads over long periods in high temperature conditions. As glass fibres tend, in some cases, to have a considerable abrasive effect on mating surfaces, these glass fibre reinforced materials are less suitable for sliding applications.
stereolithography materials (epoxy resins) – SLA is a now a popular 3D printing process for a large variety of applications across different industries, such as the Automotive, Architectural, Medical, Defence and Security, Industrial products, Consumer products and TV and Film sectors.
Other materials used for 3D printing – silver, titanium, steel, wax, photopolymers and polycarbonate.
Looking for a 3D model of an object or looking to create spares for an old piece of equipment that is no longer supported. Psyber-Tech can support on site 3D scanning for large items or for smaller items, simply put them in the post. 3D Scanning Equipment is also available to hire for long term jobs, contact us for more information.
Data Driven – send us your file to download to our machines for instant recreation of obsolete parts.
Object Driven – Send us your part in the post so we can scan it in 3D and reproduce it is a suitable material for real world usage.
Research Driven – Plastics can be produced to look and feel like a metal object for subsquent research and development of the end product.
3D Printing Design Service
Got a great idea for a 3D printed object but don’t have access to 3D modelling software? Psyber-Tech 3D Printing Design Services are here to help you. Be it a quick sketch, 2D drawing or existing object, Psyber-Tech 3D Printing use Best Practice and Designed for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) guidelines to help you make that object into a reality.
Data Driven – Your digital file forms the basis of the project. that very same file can be sent anywhere in the world to be recreated.
Results Orientated – results are consistent until the digital file is changed to reflect your design changes.
Research Led – Collaboration from colleagues around the globe can hold the same object in the palm of their hand for the most rewarding research and analysis.
Psyber-Tech 3D Printing also offer Industrial Engineering services to its customers. With 17 years’ experience in the Contract Manufacturing Services, Psyber-Tech 3D Printing can offer experience in areas such as quotation, new product introduction, process design and development, capacity sizing, head count review and forecast, project management and continuous improvement.
