Over 100 thermoplastics
including clear transparent and rubbers
With our market-leading Stratasys Object Connex we
specialise in high quality Polyjet materials that can
simulate over 100 thermoplastics including
Polypropylene, ABS, rubber-like materials from shore 40A
to 95A, transparent and high temperature/high impact.
Functional with Moving Parts
We are able to build plastic prototypes for testing that
are almost identical to injection moulded versions, that
are of high resolution, have a super smooth finish, are
fully functional, and with contain moving parts. We can
incorporate artistic and fine details such as logos and
for Assembly or Gluing
The ability to combine different materials within one
model eliminates the need to print separate prototype
parts using different materials eliminating the need to
assemble or glue them. These rapid prototypes can be
painted, drilled, machined and even chrome-plated. As
they are suitable for full testing time-to-market can be
cut and also reduces the risk of making costly
alterations to a mould tool at a later date.
This 3D printing process also opens up possibilities for
production in low volumes. It may be economically viable
to print small numbers of parts. We also have expertise
with jigs and fixtures because we print our own for use
in our factory.
Rutland Plastics brings its experience as an injection
moulder to prototyping, advising you on design best
practice and material choice early on in the process.
This results in plastic prototypes that accurately
replicate injection moulded equivalents saving on cost
