Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing

Additive Manufacturing, often referred to as 3D printing in the commercial setting, provides a multi-faceted advantage to traditional manufacturing methods.  In a true scope of engineering and production, Additive Manufacturing encompasses many technologies including subsets like Rapid Prototyping (RP), Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM), 3D Printing, layered manufacturing and additive fabrication. Rather than cutting away material into the desired shape, advanced manufacturing tools such as 3D printers actually build up objects by precisely applying material in layers. The additive process of 3D printing allows for the “free” fabrication of complex geometry, without the need for jigs, fixtures, dies, or molds.  At PPI-Time Zero, our additive manufacturing technologies can quickly create tangible parts that allow customers to touch, feel and fit parts to access their design within hours of printing.   Throughout the assembly and test processes, our value add of 3D printing, rapid prototyping, and additive fabrication is a key advantage for our customers, especially in the fields of Aerospace, Defense and Medical Device manufacturing.

With the power of PPI-Time Zero’s Additive Manufacturing, you can now transform 3D CAD renderings into functional precision plastic and elastomeric components on a quick turn schedule. PPI can deliver high resolution models, prototypes and injection molded quality parts on-demand, thereby pushing the limits of innovation while reducing costs, streamlining operations and accelerating time to market. Our 3D printing services offer a high level of accuracy, multiple form factors, surface finish, strength and part quality supporting complex manufacturing requirements. Whether you need a single part, multiple parts or complete assemblies, we have the additive manufacturing capabilities to dramatically reduce your lead time. Our team of engineers can also create custom tools and test fixtures in-house, reducing the time needed for projects that previously required outsourcing.
