Valtronic Switzerland announces the capability of 3D technology within their department of Design and Development.

Building miniaturized technology for the next generation of innovation is what Valtronic strives towards as an electronics contract manufacture and solutions provider. That is why Valtronic’s head office located in Les Charbonnières, Switzerland announces the capability of 3D technology within their department of Design and Development. “We are happy to announce the addition of 3D Printing Technology to assist our global engineering team with the prototyping of miniaturized technology in the medical and precision industrial sector. The 3D printing technology will allow the production of high-resolution prototypes and/or punctual tools for small series projects ” says, CEO Martin Zimmermann.

Valtronic can now offer customers an exciting opportunity to see product models first hand. In just a few hours, a prototype can be printed offering Valtronic engineers the ability to fine-tune the conception work and repeat printing cycles until parts are satisfactory. The 3D printers has a volume of 125x125x165 mm and a precision of 25 µm and also follows a SLA process with 5 resins at disposition, including 4 colors (black, white, grey and transparent) and one flexible resin. The option to print a 3D model in different colors provides detailed information that an image on a screen cannot do, enabling real-time 3D printed conceptualization. In addition, the SLA process has the advantage of a fast print start, an automatic orientation for an optimal positioning and an automatic support structures.

What are the benefits of printing in 3D? A number of items: low cost of prototyping, reduced feasibility, flexibility, and precision and autonomy in the development of the project. As technology continues to improve and Valtronic coincides with its advancements, the opportunity is a win-win situation for everybody involved.
