Rapid Prototyping and

Rapid Product Development

How Does it work?

ADEPT Airmotive uses

EOSINT SLS machines

what facilities are available


● Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) in croning sand or mullite.

● Ideal for Complex cores and moulds for Sand Casting.

● Growing bed dimensions: 700 x 380 x 380mm (B x D x H)


● SLS in Polyamide plastic – functional parts and prototypes.

● SLS in Primecast material – patterns for plaster / investment casting.

● SLS in Alumide – low volume tooling / functional parts.

● Growing bed dimensions: 340 x 340 x 620mm (B x D x H)

The following are some examples of parts produced by these processes:

What Facilities are available?

3 Parts replace 32

Tested at



Car Centre Console

Small series production with functional integration. Built in 1 piece.

Unit made of 16 pieces. Fully functional Prototype – with mechanical properties like the series part



EOSINT P with polystyrene produces models that are ideal as patterns for secondary processes such as plaster, investment and vacuum casting.

Plaster Cast - Functional Prototype in 2 weeks using EOSINT P Machine



Fully Functional

Investment cast parts (Germany)

30% Saving

on pattern costs

alumide material used as directool for rubber injection moulding

Alumide® brings the advantages of durability, good surface finish, relatively fast growing times, and functionality to your prototyping or tooling requirements.

Train door opener - Functional prototype

tool less production
Tool-less production

Ideal for Proof-of-concept Prototypes, low production run specials, and discontinued model spares.


Sintered Sand

Complex Tool-less cores and moulds for the Sand Casting industry.


Compatible with standard foundry processes and materials.

Complex one-piece cores.

Used for casting all conventional materials – from magnesium to high alloy steel.

Helps to make fully functional castings in record time.

Aerospace quality.


Why industry needs Rapid Product Development:

Quicker time-to-market of product.

Shorter development time equals lower costs.

Better utilization of expensive design hours.

Early validation of design concept.

Better interpretation of design intent.

Improved interaction between designers and management.

Improved product evaluation between designer and client.

More accurate tooling.

Significant savings on tooling costs.

Ability to design more complex parts.

Advantage of testing products early in the design cycle.

Testing of functional prototypes before committing to tooling.

Locally available experience and expertise

if you can model it you can grow it
“If you can model it,

You can grow it.”



1) e-mail your requirements and CAD data to us (or send data on CD).

2) We will provide a competitive quotation / order form.

3) Once the order is confirmed, we will process the data for the SLS machine.

4) The parts will be grown as a priority.

5) Parts will be delivered to your door.
