THE world's largest rapid prototyping and tooling house, Arrk Silhouette , will display a full range of leading edge technologies at NMW 2004.

A groundbreaking component of the range is Objet 3D Printing, an affordable printer designed for in-house rapid prototyping (RP) which will be operating on the stand. Mammoth stereolithography will also be a focus.

This prototype machine is capable of building larger parts than traditional machines. Visitors will also be given an opportunity to view a range of plastic and metal parts detailing the different technologies.

These include:

* Selective laser sintering - a computer controlled laser beam that solidifies nylon powder to the same dimensions as a 3D CAD design.

* Rapid Plastic - advanced silicone tooling combines with vacuum casting to produce one to 50 off prototypes in production simulant plastics.

* RP tooling - prototype injection moulding using advanced technology produces tools capable of making 50 to 5,000 plastic parts in two to three weeks.

Arrk Silhouette services are designed for application in a number of industries including automotive, medical, industrial design, mining, consumer goods, whitegoods, agricultural and electronics. Stand 2717.
