Following the recent expansion of LS production capabilities Laser Prototypes have just added three functional new materials to their LS range with working samples of these new LS materials on display at MACH 2012.
PrimeCast 101 combines high accuracy, fine surface quality and good strength making it ideally suited for the production of casting patterns. A low melting point and minimum ash residue have proven popular for use in the production of lost patterns for investment castings.
Ideally suited to the electronic, aerospace and automotive industries the flame retardant Prime Part FR offers high temperature resistance with a melting point of 176oC.
Metallic in appearance, Alumide offers exceptional surface finishing properties, high strength and high heat capacity and is suitable for the production of tools for wind tunnel testing. High stiffness and part quality make Alumide popular for small series production of tools and fixtures. Full datasheets can be accessed here
“The recent expansion of our LS capabilities is an exciting development for us, we have noticed an increased level of interest in LS for production over the past year, customer feedback has been very positive and we believe that the incorporation of Alumide, PrimeCast and PrimePart FR will allow us to better meet this growing customer requirement. ” commented Campbell Evans (Sales & Marketing Director).
Further information on the new LS materials along with samples of the entire Laser Prototypes material range and a demo model of the new EOS Formiga P100 machine can be seen at MACH 2012 (Stand No. 5895).
