Ogle Models & Prototypescontact supplier
Ipro 8000 stereolithography system
Ogle Models and Prototypes has taken delivery of an Ipro 8000 stereolithography system from 3D Systems.
The company’s experts will use the Ipro 8000 to produce high-quality parts for a range of applications.
The 3D printer will run SLA Clear material — specifically SL7870.
- The 3D printer expands Ogle’s additive manufacturing capacity, enabling it to offer further large-part capacity for high-resolution, production-grade parts.
- The Ipro 8000 3D printer is a high-throughput system that quickly and economically builds parts with excellent surface smoothness, feature resolution, edge definition and tolerances that are said to rival those of CNC-machined parts.
CNC machining is a well-established subtractive process that produces parts directly from a 3D digital model. This technical briefing from Ogle Models and Prototypes details how the company offers extensive CNC capabilities with the experience and expertise to produce not only complex parts and assemblies but stunning and accurate models and mock-ups (including scale and life-sized models) in real or substitute materials.
Ogle Models & Prototypes has worked with Riegens to create a model of an OLED lighting concept. Ogle provided a prototype that comprised a combination of 3D printing, CNC machining, laser cutting and multiple finishes including polishing and painting.
Ogle Models and Prototypes has created a model of the steering wheel for the Bloodhound SSC, a four-wheel vehicle designed to travel faster than the speed of sound.
Openhydro, a designer and manufacturer of marine turbines, has called on Ogle Models and Prototypes to produce a complete and accurate replica scale model of one of its Open-Centre turbines.
Ogle Models and Prototypes has worked on a local community project in collaboration with Letchworth Arts Centre and eight local schools to produce memory capsules that will serve future generations as a reminder of the past.
