Metal 3D Printing:

Metal 3D printing is a great solution to produce intricate metal parts directly from powder.  Parts have excellent mechanical properties and can be produced with a high resolution.

Plastic 3D Printing

Nylon 12 is a versatile material used to print durable and intricate parts with good dimensional accuracy. This is our workhorse and is perfect for production runs or prototypes.

Plastic 3D Printing (Colour)

Require some colour in your life? This process produces Nylon 12 parts in full colour. The technology is commonly used for prototypes where this added visual appearance will seal the deal.

Case Studies

Machine Components

In the machine-building industry, designers are faced with the design of many unique components to make up a single system.  For each part, the designer needs to take the manufacturing process into consideration which can pose serious design limitations.

Often, tooling is required to manufacture many of the parts in a machine, which can add severely to the cost and lead time of the project.  The machine-building industry typically has low manufacturing volumes and processes like injection moulding and casting are not viable at these production rates.

3D printing (in engineering materials) is becoming a commonplace solution in the machine-building industry for relatively small parts and for complex components.

Read more about how we implemented 3D-printed parts on our own HYRAX...

The HYRAX metal 3D printer makes extensive use of 3D printing.  More than 150 parts (80 unique part numbers) on the HYRAX are 3D printed in engineering materials and installed on every machine.  3D parts include funnels, housings, nozzles, knobs, brackets, covers, handles, cams and an array of other components.

Why was 3D printing the chosen manufacturing solution for this application:

  • Engineering materials could be used, such as Nylon and 316 SS, yielding excellent properties and long service life.
  • Huge non-recurring cost saving (50+ injection moulding/casting tools eliminated)
  • Complicated parts could be designed, with few manufacturing limitations to consider.
  • In many cases, multiple parts were combined into a single component, reducing processing steps, storage overheads and tolerance build-up.
  • Fast turnaround time for getting new parts produced and tested.
  • Manufacturing lead time is short (~7 days), so low stock levels can be maintained.
  • Design changes are easy since no tooling is required and parts are produced just-in-time.
  • Aesthetic designs, with pleasing curves and embossed features, could be implemented, without adding to the manufacturing cost.

These machine components have low production volumes (dozens per year).  By 3D printing them, not a single injection moulding tool is required.

These guides are for an old paper binding machine that is not supported anymore. By printing these in stainless steel, the machine life was extended by years.

Replacement parts

We are regularly approached by clients to produce replacement parts.  We’ve printed replacement parts for everything from machinery in the paper production industry to automotive spares.

We found the most common reasons for needing to 3D print replacement parts (instead of sourcing them from an OEM) includes:

  • Older components that are not in production anymore (out-of-service)
  • Urgent spares with long lead times
  • When a small part needs replacement, but is only available as part of a larger assembly.


Jigs and fixtures

A common requirement that we face is for the production of jigs, fixtures, assembly tools and dummy components.

These parts are normally fairly complicated and difficult/expensive to manufacture with traditional methods.  They typically need a long service life and also require a good manufacturing tolerance and high stiffness.  Nylon 12, produced on a powder bed fusion process, has proven an excellent choice for these parts.  

Applications include:

  • Drill guides for complex manufacturing operations
  • Inspection jigs and Go/No-go tools
  • Dummy parts to assist with assembly operations when the real component is not available, damage sensitive or expensive.
  • Assembly/testing tools (for example automated PCB test jigs.



A fitment jig was produced to make the assembly of several components easier.

A Chess Set was printed in 316 Stainless Steel as a high-value gift.

Luxury goods

An interesting application for metal 3D printing is the production of luxury goods.  These are typically artistically designed custom components.  We have had clients for a wide array of parts including detailed chess sets, high-value pens, knife handles, “sculptures”, trophies and a host of other applications.

Reasons for printing these include:

  • High level of detail can be achieved
  • Extremely complex geometries are possible
  • Once-off or custom parts can be produced
  • Excellent mechanical properties



Product field-testing

For newly developed products, the initial field-testing can prove a costly exercise.  After prototyping, most companies perform a short-batch production to get a few hundred products in the field for real-life testing.  Often, the result of field-testing yields some design changes before mass manufacturing can commence, which may result in new tooling requirements.  

3D printing in Nylon is commonly utilised to produce the first few hundred products for field testing, before companies commit to injection moulding tools for mass manufacturing.

Why Nylon?

  • Nylon is produced on the Powder Bed Fusion process which yields superior results over other 3D printing process
  • Good dimensional accuracy and uni-directional mechanical properties
  • High toughness and good wear properties
  • Resistant to many oils, greases and fuels
  • 3D printed parts can be machined, tapped and painted



Consumer goods can be printed to test in real life conditions.
