Why PLA 3D Printing Is Better for the Environment

Even though PLA 3D printing isn’t as durable or precise as SLA printing, it does still have its uses. PLA, or polylactic acid, is a naturally occurring substance that is completely biodegradable, nontoxic, and safe to use and dispose of. PLA 3D printing is actually better for the environment, so it’s a good idea to use it when you can.

PLA uses renewable resources in printing

PLA is the cheapest of all the 3D printing options, mostly because the material is so inexpensive. It is a good place to start on your manufacturing journey because you can make mistakes, and it won’t cost a fortune to start over. You can also get the filaments in different colors so that you can color code your attempts. All of the filaments are biodegradable and eco-friendly. (more…)

Advantages of SLA 3D Printing for Precise Resin Models

Once you have an idea for a product, you have to start the process of bringing it into reality. There are many small steps that have to be taken to lead you to that ultimate goal; but with the help of a full service engineering and manufacturing firm, we can help you get to where you’re going at the least cost possible.

What is SLA 3D printing?

Stereolithography is the oldest form of 3D printing and was actually created in the early 1980s. Today this method of printing is used for many industries, including the medical industry. This is because the SLA printer is able to be much more precise, and the hardened resin allows for actual moving parts, as well as watertight seals.  (more…)

What Is the Difference Between PLA and SLA 3D Printing?

There is no doubt that 3D printing is a common technology used in engineering and manufacturing today. While 3D printing is most often used to create working prototypes or 3D models that investors can hold in their hands, it can also be used to create lasting moving parts for your product, when warranted. Here is what you need to know about the different types of 3D printing and when they should be used.

SLA 3D Printing for Manufacturing

The SLA, or Stereolithography, 3D printing method is the original process developed in the 80s. SLA uses a laser to cure liquid resin in hardened layers to build a 3D model or even product with moving parts. The SLA 3D printer offers durability, functionality, and flexibility to work within your desired parameters. (more…)

Advantages of Combined Engineering and Manufacturing Services To Take Your Project to Fruition

Your new project isn’t just some piece of machinery. It’s the culmination of sometimes years of consideration about a product or equipment that consumers or businesses truly need, but  having a million dollar idea does little for you if you don’t have a tangible product to sell. That’s where RJ Manufacturing comes in.

Fewer cooks in the kitchen

They do say that the more people you have on a project, the more chance of mistakes being made. When you have too many people from more than one company collaborating on a project, it can be a breeding ground for miscommunication and costly errors. When you hire us to bring your project into being, we can keep everything under one roof, including engineering, manufacturing, and anything in between. (more…)
