We still leading the way

Prototal was one of the first prototype manufacturers in Europe with a 3D printer. As far back as the 1980s, we were printing parts for engineers, consultants and buyers across Scandinavia. And we still lead the way to this day. Once you select us as your supplier for your prototypes, you will be getting more than just the prototype itself. You will get our experience, knowledge and the security that we will fully understand your future manufacturing process.

SLA - stereolitography

Stereolithography, SLA, is used when you need surface and dimensional accuracy and richness of detail. SLA is also optimal for design models and master pattrern for casting moulds. Prototypes can be tailored using different materials in order to achieve the desired transparency, flexibility or rigidity. In the case of design models, the parts are finished and coated so that they are as close to the final product as possible. We can also add different surface structures, graphics, prints or colours. SLA is just one of our rapid prototyping / additive manufacturing / 3D printing options.

SLS - selective laser sintering

Selective laser sintering, SLS, is used in situations where the function and rigidity of the prototype are important. By selecting the right material, the flexibility, rigidity and resistance to ageing can all be tailor made for your part. SLS is the best choice when you need your product to be made in a durable material. SLS is a free form manufacturing method which uses your CAD file directly to create the product without the need for a mould. 
Different types of post treatment can be then used, for example, to make design models. In such cases, the parts are finished and coated so that they are as close to the final product as possible. We can also add different surface structures, graphics, prints or colours. SLS is just one of our rapid prototyping / additive manufacturing / 3D printing options.

MJF - multi jet fusion

Multi jet fusion, MJF, is the new SLS tecnique

With amazing speed and resolution, the MJF printer sets a new standard for what is possible in 3D printing. The machine is ideal for prototypes as well as series production in numbers previously unaffected by additive manufacturing.

The machine also offers finer detail and resolution than corresponding methods using thermoplastic. Details are printed in PA12 and have properties that exceed selective laser sintering, SLS.

The printed models can, for example, be infiltrated, painted, dyed or grinded to obtain the desired surface.
MJF is one of several options in Rapid Prototyping / Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing.
