400mc - This 3D production system is a FDM modeler. By laying down
long beads of molten plastic on to each layer and building the part up. RAPIDLab
has the ability to print parts in four different materials including ABS, PC,
PPSF, and Ultem,
in four different layer thicknesses for a highly customizable part.
This machine can build parts as large as 16 x 14 x 16 in.
•Objet 30pro - This 3D system is
powered by PolyJet
technology. Each layer of the part is sprayed with a liquid polymer and cured
with a UV light. RAPIDLab has the ability to print with three different
is opaque, very rigid, and dimensionally accurate. VeroClear
is transparent and very rigid, but can have slight variations in size and
is opaque, a more flexible material, like polypropylene, and can have slight
variations in size and thickness. This machine can build parts as large as 11.8
x 7.8 x 5.9 in.
•Dimension sst768 – This 3D system
is a FDM modeler, laying down a hot bead of plastic to form each layer of the
part. This machine can only print with ABS plastic, but it can print in nine
different colors. This machine can print parts as large as 8 x 8 x 12 in.
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines
•The HAAS TM1p is a full size,
4-axis, CNC vertical mill with a tool changer.
This allows for very complex parts to be made easily.
700 is a
CNC mill. This
machine is small and easy to use and can be used by students with the proper
training for anything school related.
CNC lathe is a small computer controlled lathe that allows for manufacturing
small complex round parts.
•FARO Gage – This is a portable CMM
(coordinate measuring machine) used to measure the dimensional accuracy of
parts. It is quick and easy to use and is extremely accurate.
