Baker Industries | Services | Metal and Plastic 3D Printing

3D Printing

Baker Industries is home to seven 3D printers for both plastic and metal printing. Additive manufacturing has removed design barriers to enable the creation of geometries that were previously not possible and /or affordable through traditional manufacturing. This has unlocked the door to faster innovation and exploration of improved designs, while still offering the same quality through high-performance materials. The benefits of integrating AM into conventional manufacturing are clear, but in order to realize its full potential, OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers are seeking the consult of experts to guide them on their journey of uncovering the right applications, materials, and processes.

Machines

  • 5 – Thermoplastic
    • 4 – Stratasys FDM 900mc
    • 1 – Stratasys FDM 400mc
  • 2 – Metal
    • 2 – EOS M290

Printing Process

All Stratasys machines utilize the FDM process. Which means the filament is heated to its melting point and then extuded layer by layer, to create a 3 dimensional object.

Both EOS M290s utilize the DMLS process. Which stands for Direct Metal Laser Sintering. Parts are built using layers to selectively sinter a powdered metal material into layers. Once sintered the part will never dissolve or crumble back into a powder. 3D printed metal parts are 99.9% as dense as regular billet materials.
