Why design for additive manufacturing?

Prosilas offers  services in the field of rapid prototyping and production using additive manufacturing technologies

Through Additive Design it is possible to obtain lighter components while maintaining the mechanical performance and to develop more competitive products from the point of view of weights, shapes and costs, even on a large scale.

Additive manufacturing offers the chance to:

N

Design, validate and produce multiple versions of the product simultaneously

N

Reduce of product development times, switching from the idea to the final product in a short time

N

Eliminate tools and molds

N

Aggregate multiple functional components in only one part

N

Reduce waste material

Rapid prototyping service through additive technologies

Rapid Prototyping

Prototyping is one of the key parts of product development. Traditionally it is a phase that requires high costs and long delivery times.

Rapid prototyping, on the other hand, allows companies to quickly transform the ideas of designers and engineers into proof-of-concepts that are as realistic, scaled and functional as the final products.

The prototype is made using additive manufacturing technologies, which allows you to create objects with complex geometry and excellent aesthetic results.

Prosilas, a European leader in the sector, offers the Rapid Prototyping service and supports its customers through certified technologies, tests and processes.

Rapid prototyping is used in the following fields: Aerospace, Automotive, Consumer, Fashion / Design and Medical.

METROLOGICAL CONTROL

3D SCAN /

Reverse Engineering

Prosilas offers metrological reports and reverse engineering service using a Gom Atos 5 scanner

 

This scanner allows analyzing the parts, functions and operation of the element with very high precision;  moreover, to apply a metrological control in order to create a highly faithful 3D representation.

Reverse engineering allows manufacturers to analyze the design of a part, in order to replicate it, make changes or improvements.

 

Trough Reverse Engineering is it possible to:

N

Reconstruct the mathematics of the scanned object, ensuring a very high detailed result;

N

Compare the product with the designer's concept, highlighting the differences with the CAD files;

N

Have accurate dimensional control on products based on mathematics sent by customers and certified reports;

N

Have dimensional control and certified compliance reports on parts produced with other technologies;

N

Create or rebuild a 3D file of out of production parts .

Research and development of materials

R&D of Materials

Prosilas dedicates a constant commitment and great attention to technological development and to the achievement of its customers’ specific requirements, also working on the creation of specific blends of material to achieve these objectives.

To offer innovation and the development of new applications in the production field, Prosilas collaborates with universities, competence centers and technological partners..

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING CONSULTING

Consulting

Team work is Prosilas’ real strength

The Prosilas team is made up of application engineers, technicians and qualified operators able to follow a project from co-design, to technological consultancy, up to the most suitable post-processing treatments to supply high-performance polymer parts.

The team’s best quality is its ongoing training and the strong motivation of our operators, who constantly place the customer at the center of their work; thus allowing the Company to guarantee a highly competent service.

Prosilas and its staff guide their customers in optimizing production by offering professional and specialized support.

Providing its customers a sustainable, advanced and flexible way of dealing with production is Prosilas’ corporate mission. 

Prosilas has 19 years of experience, more than 10 industrial Additive Manufacturing systems, more than 20 operators and over 500 customers.

It is therefore possible to stop talking about digital craftsmanship and start considering a technologically more advanced and performing reality such as the Digital Factory.

MAKing IT REAL

Specialized technicians are always available:
from the stage of feasibility study to the manufacturing of the projects, to start production in an AM perspective

STRATEGIC SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE

Twenty years of AM know-how available to achieve innovative objectives and strategies for customers.

RESEARCH AND POST-PROCESS

Support in research and development projects, creation of customised blends and production processes.

Consultancy on aesthetic finishes and treatments for the functional improvement of the parts.

With the support of Prosilas it is possible to:

identify the right applications to be produced with additive technologies;

Understand how to make design adjustments for additive manufacturing;

Understand the world of additive manufacturing to take full advantage of technology and achieve goals;

Establish a relationship to analyze together the AM benefits and the ideal business strategy to build a highly effective and low risk operational plan.

From prototyping to finishing

Post Process / Automated Finishing

Prosilas offers post-process treatments for aesthetic and functional improvements

All parts produced by Additive Manufacturing can receive post-process treatments for aesthetic and / or functional improvements.

The most suitable treatments are chosen on the basis of the standards that the product must meet.

Automated Finishing

Chemical Smoothing

Treatment of the SLS part with chemical vapor:

  • Waterproofing
  • Makes the part washable
  • Smooth surface
  • Compatibile with food contact
  • Facilitates the flow of fluids (possibility of internal treatment, pipes and tanks)
  • Reduces the proliferation of germs and fungi (food and medical applications)
  • It leaves no residue

Coloring

The color penetrates inside the piece for a few tenths of a millimeter. It does not alter the part dimensionally.

  • Wide choice of colors
  • Waterproofing
  • It can also penetrate into the hollow parts of the piece
  • Scratch resistant
  • Does not affect the original dimensions of a part
  • Does not change the geometry and details

QUALITY and production standards

Integrated Process Chain Management – MQS

Prosilas manages the mixing of powders through the MQS (miscellaneous quality standard) system which allows you to keep the mixing of the powder constant and repeatable throughout the entire production process, for a guaranteed quality standard.

Our machines are also powered by Eos IPCM Plus (Integrated Process Chain Management) to ensure the handling of the material in the most correct way to maintain our quality standards.
