Some of the technologies used at the laboratory include selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), extrusion (FDM), and material jetting.
The company's engineers will work with clients to ensure their product requirements are met.
The firm also offers full consultation on the integration of 3D printing into manufacturing processes.
