Rapid Prototyping Machines


Rapid Prototyping Machines

American media have recently announced, that despite all argues around this question, some American company is going to release a great innovation – three-dimensional printer that can be used at home or in offices in order to product 3D model, like parts and details of any real object or mechanism. Incredible thing here is that this prototyping machine is going to cost less than 5000 dollars, the price affordable for most people, who need such apparatus.

The manufacturers from all corners of the globe were impatient to see this innovation release, but they were truly disappointed when despite some money taken as deposit for such 3D machine, the machine itself has not been supplied yet. The actual truth is that those manufacturers, who were going to supply affordable prototyping machines or at least promised to, may not live long in a severe market environment and taking into account constant competition between leading companies. Rapid prototyping is not an exception in this case.

Probably those initials difficulties can be solved soon, but the bad thing here is that they can harm those executives who have given away their money for something that does not exist and may not be produced in the nearest future.

However, not all firms and enterprises waist their breath, some of them proved to be reliable ones. One of such companies is the American company Objet Geometries LTD. This company proved to supply high-precision prototyping machines in time, the quality of these machines is undeniable as well.

3D printers offered by Objet geometries present accurate performance, the models coming out of company’s machines are of high quality and can hardly be compared to any other 3D printer. The company constantly improves its technology, producing the best three-dimensional machines to their customers and offering the best prices.

Many enterprises producing rapid prototyping machines offer their products in lower prices. In practice, these cheap prototyping machines are not as good as they are told to be. The surfaces of such items are rougher and the quality of part coming from such machines is often poor, while details are fragile and breakable. As it is known, the main property of prototyping models is their solidity, that is why fragility is a great disadvantage of cheap rapid prototyping 3D machines.

The reasons, mentioned above, urge great corporations all over the world, including countries of the third world, to buy more expensive and reliable rapid prototyping machines, produced by known companies, which are ready to bear responsibility for sold item, to support and to service it beginning from installation and in the process of machine exploitation. Such machines produced by eminent companies provide the most accurate, reliable and solid copies of real objects.

Product Development Simplified !


Innovative new technology-changing the manufacturing sectors, with the touch of a button.

Driven by passion for Design and Engineering, one company is revolutionizing multiple sectors, with an innovative new product. The future has arrived and is about to prove itself beneficial to multiple sectors.

Proto3000 Inc. is a 3D Engineering Solutions company that has successfully made their mark with product development in this market. With passion for excellent customer service, this organization provides innovative technology to manufacturing professionals. Utilizing advanced 3D Engineering Technologies, Proto3000 accelerates the product development process.

“3D Computer Aided Design (CAD), Rapid Prototyping and Handheld 3D Laser Scanning technologies can be used synergistically to provide a cost efficient product development process” according to Eyal Geiger, Engineering Manager at Proto3000.

Product development is a key aspect of any market, and to ensure the success of the company or product, quality assurance and testing are ever growing necessities. Proto3000 takes this necessity to the next level and combines the latest technology along with ease of use.

The product development process begins when several conceptual drawings are developed; they are then designed in 3D CAD. Rapid Prototypes of the CAD data are built and then utilized for field testing in order to confirm the 3D CAD data. Proto3000 presents a cost effective solution; Reducing costs and keeping quality at its highest through the use of the 3D Laser Scanning for inspection purposes. The 3D Scanner digitizes the part surface in real-time to its computer software. The original 3D CAD data and the digitized surface mesh are then merged to produce full inspection reports. Further post-processing of the scanned data can be used for Reverse Engineering. This allows the product to be redesigned and improved prior to final inspection. This action alone can save weeks of laborious and cost intensive processes prior to production.

Handheld 3D Laser Scanning is quickly growing into a new phenomenon among national manufacturers in multiple industries, (Product Development, Aerospace, Automotive, Archaeology, Medical, just to name a few) – with limitless potential. A growing roster of clients is proof that these scanners are an engineering solution, that offers:

– increased productivity and efficiency

– High accuracy and resolution

– Flexible scanning capabilities with no mobility limitations

Based out of their office in Concord (Ontario) Proto3000 is going above and beyond the call of duty. This organization helps customers use and maintain the product, in addition to the professional services they offer. What does this mean to clients? This means quality, safety, dedication, and a stepping stone to a new generation of handheld 3D laser scanning and its multiple uses.

Proto3000 has managed to assist their clients to save money and eliminating unnecessary production wait times. By combining customer service, product knowledge and passion for the industry, Proto3000 has proven to be a growing success in this industry.

Proto3000 recently exhibited its handheld 3D Laser Scanner and Rapid Prototyping Processes at this year’s Canadian Manufacturing and Technology Show which took place from October 19 – 22, 2009. These trades were received with great success and are a staple for manufacturing and product development services.

History of the cell phone creation


Large cell phoneCell phones may be new devices, but they originated in the 1920’s. Radios were used since 1921. Features were put into these radios in the 1940’s, and they were used by police. The concept of the cellular phone was developed in 1947 which originated from the mobile car phone. The concept of the cellular phone was produced by Bell Laboratories. The first actual cell phone was made in 1973 by Martin Cooper of Motorola and other assisting inventors who used the idea of the car phone and applied the technology necessary to make a portable cell phone possible. Cell phones were first made available to the public in 1984. Back then, they were very large, expensive instruments. The Federal Communications Commission made a regulation that limited radio-spectrum frequencies. This is the reason only twenty-three simultaneous conversations were possible in the same service area. In 1968 the FCC decided to increase the frequencies to allow research for better connections. The FCC worked together with AT&T and Bell Towers to establish broadcast towers. The towers were small with low power and covered a “cell” that was a few miles in radius, but actually covered a larger area. This allowed calls to pass from tower to tower.
