Fathom’s Technologies for Rapid Prototypes & Production Parts
Check out these additive and advanced manufacturing services offered by Fathom //
- Stereolithography //SLA cures photopolymer resin with an ultraviolet laser. The laser traces a shape dictated by the original file across the surface of the resin bath. The resin touched by the laser hardens, then the build platform descends in the resin bath, and the process is repeated until the entire part is complete.
- Selective Laser Sintering //SLS uses a blade to spread a thin layer of powder over the build volume. A laser sinters the cross-section of the part, fusing the powder together. The z stage then drops one layer, and the process begins again until the build is finished. Parts are then excavated from the build powder-cake and bead blasted. The unused powder in the build envelope acts as the support structures, so no support removal is necessary.
- PolyJet //PolyJet is photopolymer-based jetting process that distributes material droplets layer by layer onto a build platform (immediately cured by a flash of UV light). At the end of the build process, the object is fully cured and can be handled immediately without post-curing. This technology includes the use of a gel-like support material, designed to enable complicated geometries (removed by soaking and/or water jetting).
- Multi Jet Fusion //MJF technology builds parts by laying down a thin layer of powder on a print bed over and over. The inkjet array in the print carriage sweeps over the print bed, jetting two agents downward—a fusing agent, printed where the powder will fuse together, and a detailing agent that is used to reduce fusing at the part boundary in order to achieve greater detail.
- Direct Metal Laser Sintering //Metal 3D printing, also known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) is an additive layer technology. A metal 3D printer utilizes a laser beam to melt 20-60-micron layers of metal powder on top of each other. Powdered metal is spread across the entire build platform and selectively melted to previous layers. This additive process allows metal parts to be grown out of a bed of powdered metal. The process is like other polymer-based 3D printers that use powder bed fusion.
- Fused Deposition Modeling //FDM is a filament-based additive technology distributed by a moving print head that extrudes a heated thermoplastic material in a pattern layer by layer onto a build platform. This technology includes use of a support material to create supportive structures that are removed by force or solution.
- Urethane Casting //A master pattern is first designed using 3D CAD software. The master pattern is then created using PolyJet or stereolithography. The client may also provide a master pattern. The pattern is placed in liquid silicone to form a mold. Once the mold is fully cured, it is halved and the master pattern is removed. The cavity left behind is used for casting. Urethane or other resin materials are added to the mold tool and cured.
- CNC Machining //An engineer creates a CAD model of the part to be made. The machinist translates the CAD file into a CNC program and prepares the machine. The CNC program is initiated and the machine produces the part.
- Injection Molding //To begin the process, a custom mold is produced according to the project specifications. The material chosen is heated to its melting point and then delivered to the mold cavity. The molten material begins to cool and take shape inside the mold. Once it has fully cooled, the part is ejected from the mold and caught by a bin. The machine resets in order to begin the process again.
- Sheet Metal Fabrication / / To begin, a sheet metal fabricator will convert a CAD design or engineering drawing into machine code. Then, a CO2 laser cutting, water jet cutting, wire EDM, or other sheet metal cutting machine will begin to remove material to form the geometries of the desired part. After the material is cut, the material is bent or formed into the correct shape. The part then moves to post-processing or assembly, including adding inserts, welding or finishing.
