Sand-blasting is a surface treatment performed through abrasion via the use of a high-pressure jet of sand and air. This process is applied to unworked prototypes with the aim of improving its quality, removing any imperfections from it. Sand-blasting is in fact used to clean the prototype from any imperfections present, increasing its surface roughness and thus making it particularly suitable to undergo subsequent surface treatments. 



It is important that the various prototypes receive the correct level of surface finish, achieving the definition of elements with marked details and in complete conformity with the initial design. We perform finishing operations for the prototypes obtained using the various rapid prototyping technologies, achieving various levels of finish, respecting the characteristics and the purpose of the reference prototype: completely smooth, embossed surfaces and intermediate processing. 


Of course, the aesthetics of a prototype play an essential role in defining elements that are perfectly functional and with all the characteristics necessary to decisively contribute to the creation of components with attention-to-the-smallest-details. We offer our clients prototype painting processes, using a wide variety of RAAL colours, according to the specifications requested by the client, creating prototypes with high levels of finish. 



The prototypes must guarantee the achieving of high parameters in terms of functionality and practicality, effectively supporting the various types of applications in which they are used. For this reason, in order to increase their functionality and value, we create threaded holes and Helicoil inserts of any diameter, according to our customers’ requirements. 


The galvanisation process is an essential operation to create elements with high levels of resistance and high precision, increasing their mechanical and thermal properties. We perform galvanisation procedures applying claddings in various types of metal. This process can be applied to elements obtained through prior rapid prototyping processing.
