Additive Manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, provides a new set of solutions to swiftly improve conventional manufacturing, prototyping and product development. The SiMT houses the largest array of services on the east coast, including the capacity to print metals, such as aluminum and stainless steel. We also have a complete line of resin, filament and powder printers with some of the largest platforms available. For detailed information on the technologies we can provide, read our Additive Manufacturing Center brochure (PDF)

Additive offers production flexibility and provides great design validation: validate your designs with a prototype before investing in tooling, and save time and capital on the manufacturing floor.  

We've invested millions in prototyping technologies so you don't have to. Whether your need is for a simple plastic model, heat resistant nylon parts, or high-tech metals, the SiMT has a solution available now. Compared to traditional molded prototype solutions, 3D printed prototypes are very cost effective. We can also produce short run production parts using our Additive Manufacturing Processes.
