GPI Prototype uses a variety of cutting-edge additive technologies to produce geometries in a wide range of materials. These additive technologies impact product design processes and time cycles, resulting in significant time and cost savings. Notable Capabilities include Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), Objet 3D printing, RTV tooling, Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). These technologies build directly from CAD data, and are ideal for low-volume production of metal, plastic and urethane components. Some of GPI Prototypes newest services include: CNC Machining, Injection Molding, Laser Engraving, Laser Welding and Reverse Engineering.

DMLS or Direct Metal Laser Sintering is an additive manufacturing technology that provides high precision 3D models. The layer additive process is suitable for proof of concept models and patterns for urethane castings.
SLA or Stereolithography produces accurate models from a wide range of UV curable resins, comparable to ABS, Polycarbonate and Polypropylene. The resulting prototypes are suitable for form, fit and function testing as well as casting patterns for metal and urethane castings.
FDM or Fused Deposition Modeling is a rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing technology that can produce ABS, PC and ABS/PC parts without the need of expensive tooling. This is ideal for short run parts with quick turnaround times.
SLS or Selective Laser Sintering, provides accurate models from sintered nylon powder. They can be used for form, fit and function testing as well as limited run production. Robust physical properties of the base material make this ideal for aerospace applications and DDM.
RTV or Room Temperature Vulcanization is a multi-step rapid prototyping molding process that utilizes precisely controlled vacuum, temperature and pressure. This process offers mechanical properties that closely resemble engineered plastics to provide you with very realistic prototype parts. These are durable, color-matched pieces that are produced quickly without hard tooling, making them ideal for low-volume production runs.
Prototype and Production Tooling created using DMLS technology offers designers extended possibilities for the manufacturer of high performance tools. Turn-around times for tooling are reduced from weeks to days with additional value created by the unique geometric freedom of design. This design freedom provides the integration of conformal cooling channels, improving the economics of injection molded parts.
