3T RPD® Ltd – 3D printing company building plastic and metal
Additive Manufactured (AM) parts.
3T RPD® is a market leading production Additive Manufacturing (AM) company providing 3D printing services for customers in a range of industries including Aerospace, Motorsport and the Medical sector. We manufacture quality production quantity parts, on time, for end usage alongside one-off or prototypes in a range of metal alloys and plastics.
Using layer-based laser technologies, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) are fast, cost-effective and extremely accurate Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes. Inspiring designers and engineers to create parts specifically for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process, they are freed up from previous design constraints. Built directly from 3D CAD data, they negate the need for conventional tooling, where parts can be optimised to retain structural strength whilst reducing weight. These attractive benefits are why we provide 3D printing services for industries such as Aerospace, Automotive and F1, Architectural, Defence, Medical, Luxury and Consumer Goods.
We offer a range of plastic and metal materials for our 3D printing services, including high performance alloys such as Aluminium, Titanium and Inconel, and have some of the world’s largest plastic and metal machines. Our team of experienced engineers and skilled in-house finishers ensuring every last detail is taken care of. Offering an extensive range of finishing techniques for both plastic and metals ensures our customer requirements are met.
With research and development being at the forefront of our business, we build parts with the best surface finish and mechanical properties that these technologies can provide, in the shortest lead-times possible. We do this whilst pursuing the highest standards of excellence in our customer service and delivery. This is recognised by the quality standards that we have been awarded, and we are the first 3D printing company in the UK to hold AS 9100 Rev D, ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003.
Our Case Studies section contains real examples of how our plastic and metal parts have assisted in reducing our customer’s development schedules, saving them money whilst increasing performance. Our News will keep you up to date with all our latest news, events and exciting developments within the 3D printing industry.
