Cimquest’s Additive Manufacturing 3D Printing Solutions

Cimquest’s line of 3D Printers includes systems for plastic and metal 3D printing. We realize there isn’t an “all-in-one” additive manufacturing system that can accomplish everything so we offer multiple technologies that serve a diverse set of applications and industries. From entry-level 3D printers to industrial systems, we have the tech to help you produce conceptual & functional prototypes, end-use parts, models, manufacturing tooling, jigs & fixtures, and more. We provide full-service implementation and our award-winning technical support team will give you piece of mind whenever an issue arises.

Extrusion

Material extrusion is a 3D printing process where a filament of solid thermoplastic material is pushed through a heated nozzle, melting it in the process. The printer deposits the material on a build platform along a predetermined path, where the filament cools and solidifies to form a solid object.

Material Extrusion

A 3D printing process where a filament of solid thermoplastic material is pushed through a heated nozzle, melting it in the process. The printer deposits the material on a build platform along a predetermined path, where the filament cools and solidifies to form a solid object.

Material Extrusion Printers

Fused Filament FFFFused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

These are the most commonly available and the least expensive types of 3D printing technology. A spool of filament is loaded into the 3D printer and fed through to a printer nozzle in the extrusion head.

VAT Polymerization

A 3D printing process where a light source selectively cures a photopolymer resin in a vat. The two most common forms of Vat Polymerization are SLA (Stereolithography) and DLP (Digital Light Processing). The difference between these types of 3D printing technology is the light source they use to cure the resin. SLA printers use a point laser, in contrast to the voxel approach used by a DLP printer.

VAT Polymerization Printers

Stereolithography (SLA)

SLA printers use mirrors with one positioned on the X-axis and another on the Y-axis which rapidly aim a laser beam across a vat of resin, selectively curing and solidifying a cross-section of the object inside this building area, building it up layer by layer.

Masked Stereolithography (MSLA)
MSLA utilizes an LED array as its light source, shining UV light through an LCD screen displaying a single layer slice as a mask. The XY accuracy is fixed and does not depend on how well you can zoom/scale the lens. MSLA can, under certain conditions, achieve faster print times compared to SLA because an entire layer is exposed at once.

Powder Bed Fusion

A 3D printing process where a thermal energy source will selectively induce fusion between powder particles inside a build area to create a solid object. Many Powder Bed Fusion devices also employ a mechanism for applying and smoothing powder simultaneous to an object being fabricated so that the final item is encased and supported in unused powder.

Powder Bed Fusion Printers

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
This process creates an object with Powder Bed Fusion technology and polymer powder.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) produce objects in a similar fashion to SLS. The main difference is that these types of 3D printing technology are applied to the production of metal parts.

Material Jetting

A 3D printing process where a liquid bonding agent selectively binds regions of a powder bed. It’s similar to SLS, with the requirement for an initial layer of powder on the build platform, but unlike SLS, which uses a laser to sinter powder, Binder Jetting moves a print head over the powder surface depositing binder droplets. These droplets bind the powder particles together to produce each layer of the object.

Material Jetting Printers

Metal Binder Jetting (MBJ)

Metal powder is bound using a polymer binding agent. Producing metal objects using Binder Jetting allows for the production of complex geometries well beyond the capabilities of conventional manufacturing techniques.
