‘3D printing/additive manufacturing — selective laser sintering’
Selective laser sintering (SLS) is an accurate powder-based additive manufacturing process that can be used for both prototyping and small-batch production applications without the need for extensive tooling. Parts can be built in a range of nylon materials. One advantage of laser sintering is that it is fully self-supporting and can build highly complex geometry. Ogle Models and Prototypes has been working with laser sintering since 2000.

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.
