Rapid Prototype Technologies at PERIDOT
Time to market is a critical factor in a product's success and profitability. Reducing the time required to develop your product, through advanced methods such as PERIDOT's rapid prototyping services, makes your business more profitable and produces that profit at a faster pace.
In addition, rapid prototyping reduces the cost and time to produce tools and molds for your customers who demand customized or tailored components.
At PERIDOT, we utilize three core rapid prototyping technologies: SLA , SLS, and FDM. Our variety of development systems and experience allows us to tailor a rapid prototyping solution that suits your particular needs.
This process delivers very excellent detail in a semi-flexible acrylate thermoplastic. The Somos material provides a versitle model with ABS or PE characteristics. SLA is also desirable to use as a mold master, pattern material, or for verification. Learn more about Stereolithography.
SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)
This produces a highly detailed rigid part utilizing the duraform nylon or duraform glass filled material with improved heat resistance. Depending on desired part performance, it is also well suited to producing sintered metal parts and inserts. Learn more about Selective Laser Sintering.
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling)
This is a very stable prototype that is accurate at providing durable snap fits. It utilizes ABS plastic which can be finished and painted if desired. The process is well suited for functional and durable models. Learn more about Fused Deposition Modeling.
As a flexible engineering service bureau, PERIDOT offers unique customer service and new and creative ideas. We can also provide secondary operations on your RP model such as light machining, assembly or incorporating last minute design changes.
