Rapid Prototyping

In addition to using additive manufacturing for its own business, Danko Arlington has capacity to create thermoplastic models, prototypes, and production parts for other companies as well.

Customer rapid prototyping requirements are evaluated immediately upon receipt.  Price and delivery are typically quoted from CAD files including .sldprt, .igs, .stp, or .stl. We also have the resources to create CAD in Solidworks from 2-D drawings.  Usually, 3-D printing commences the same day of receiving an order with special packaging and overnight shipping available for fast delivery.

Our plant boasts in having two (2) in-house Fortus 900mc printers made by Stratasys which use Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) to create fast, reliable, and accurate parts in ABS or high-strength Poly Carbonate plastic.

At present, Danko Arlington has the largest 3-D printers and printing capacity in the Mid Atlantic region. Each machine can print within an envelope of 36” x 24” x 36” with accuracies of .0035” inches or +/-.0015 inch per inch whichever is greater.  Larger models can be printed in sections and later joined together. We also offer the ability to post finish, sand, paint, machine, plate, cast in aluminum or bronze, and/or assemble to customer requirements.

Danko Arlington is more than just a source for 3-D printing.  We have decades of manufacturing knowledge and expertise. Often, our company can offer more competitive pricing than other providers because our costs and overhead are covered by our core business of cast and machined components.

Customers requiring 3-D printing not only receive an accurate plastic product, but share the benefits of having a well-established and accredited ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer, experienced in quality engineered parts, assist and create their special plastic build — from start to finish.
