Meet the PCE instruments for 3D printing

Posted By Hannah Bensoussan on Aug 20, 2016 | 0 comments

Our factory in Paris is equipped with PCE Instruments for 3D printing. Read about the equipment and let us walk you through each side of our manufacturing process.

The machines that take care of our printing work include production, quality control, and research and development machines.

PCE Instruments, our supplier, is a leader in manufacturing and distributing of innovative and high tech machines, in the field of precise measuring, weighing systems, laboratory tools, conception of control systems and regulation processes. The company owns a vast catalogue of specific products in these fields.

Our production equipment includes everything that goes into making the physical object – most primarily our printers. Among them, the EOS P395  have a maximum print size of 340 x 340 x 620 mm. The microblasting, polishing, and painting machines we have would also be considered to be part of the production machines.

Quality standards are also extraordinarily important at Sculpteo. For this we have added a couple of tools provided by PCE Instruments which help us to maintain exact specifications, and can alert us to the minor adjustments that may need to be made to the printer in order to ensure consistent quality prints. There are several things that need to be measured consistently throughout the factory, including barometric pressure, temperature, and humidity – these factors are important not only for the consistent quality of the materials and machines, but also for a safe work environment for our workers.

In tandem with our quality standard machines, our R&D machines are getting a boost in machinery.
