About the Company

Laser Porototypes Europe is a Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling contract manufacturing company. By using leading edge 3D Printing technologies they provide prototypes and short production runs to companies in the Medical, Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics and Consumer Products industries. The main aim of the FUSION project is to design a mould from new materials for injection moulding companies that can accommodate different inserts and test the durability of these inserts. Such a mould is called a standard bolster because it can accommodate different inserts of alternative designs from different customers, thus reducing the overall mould cost for a customer. The inserts will be made in a range of 3D Printing technologies and materials to see can they successfully provide a faster/cheaper alternative to traditional more expensive tooling inserts. If successful this will allow the company to offer a new process and product. In particular they are interested to determine what medical grade plastics they could mould using these 3D printed inserts.
