CRDM is one of the UK's leading providers of rapid prototyping and tooling for industry, across sectors including automotive, aerospace, medical and defence.
>STEREOLITHOGRAPHY - SLA modelling (stereolithography prototypes) offers the most accurate type of
fit/from prototype for the verification of any design before commiting to your chosen production route.

>SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING - SLS, Selective Laser Sintering prices are generally lower than SLA modelling
due to the reduced post finishing required from this powder based system. The self supporting powder system also has advantage of a multiple build
option where llarge numbers of the same component can be build, drastically reducing the individual part cost.

>VACUUM CASTING - SMT, CRDM currently has the largest PU vacuum casting capacity available in the UK.
Polyuretane Vacuum casting resin components produced from silicone mould tooling is an economical way of producing pars of exhibitions, market research,
batch prototyping, or in some instances, low-volume production. Read more on our
>CNC MACHINING - CRDM offer a fast and economic CNC machining service for Ferrous and Non Ferrous, Plastics and
Resin Model Board. CRDM's unique UK 'In - House' & China sourced CNC machining service offers you a choice of manufacturing routes to suit your individual budget
and lead-time. Read more on our CNC Machining
>METAL SINTERING - The DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) additive manufacturing produces metal components direct
from a CAD model using a powerful 200w Yb-fibre laser on the New EOSINT M 270 (250w CO2 laser on the EOSINT M 250 Xtended) and layers of fine metal powder.
A CAD model is sliced into 0.020mm layer and effectively reconstructed layer by layer with the laser fusing or melting each layer to the one below.
