Reach Out to ProTek Models for Your 3D Printing Needs in Houston, TX

If you’re looking to save time and money on production costs – and who isn’t – 3D printing may provide the solution you’re searching for.

3D printing technology has advanced rapidly over the past decade. Printers have become faster and more efficient, making them ideal for large-scale production runs. They can produce high-quality pieces created from a wide range of materials including plastic, nylon, resin, and metal, often at less cost than traditional subtractive manufacturing processes.

Your options are expanding all the time. Today, 3D printing is used to create everything from rocket engines to heart valves. Every day it seems like there’s a new application for 3D printing.

High-Quality 3D Printing Services for Businesses in the Houston, TX Area

ProTek Models, one of the West Coast’s leading providers of custom scale model and 3D print manufacturing services, has relocated to the Houston area and set up shop in Conroe, TX. We look forward to serving the needs of businesses all over the Lone Star state. Call us at (832) 968-6636 to discuss your 3D print project.

The services we offer Texas businesses include:

Custom scale models – ProTek Models is recognized as an industry leader in the creation of durable, high-quality, and high-detail models of satellites, spacecraft, rocket engines, automobiles, trains, watercraft, architectural models, and more. Custom scale models make a great marketing tool.

FDM 3D printing – FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D Printing is a great choice for functional prototypes and end-use parts. The most popular type of 3D printing, FDM 3D printing, allows businesses to manufacture high-precision parts and components using a variety of engineering-grade thermoplastic materials, with a higher turnaround time. FDM is utilized for production, concept models, manufacturing tools, and rapid prototyping.

SLA 3D printing – Introduced in 1989, SLA or Stereolithography was the original 3D printing technology. Highly advanced production-grade resins and a new ultrafast SLA-type technology called LSPc (Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing) have revolutionized SLA 3D printing. It’s ideal for pieces that require a great surface finish, high accuracy, and fine detail, all at fairly rapid build times. SLA parts were also infamous for being very fragile, heat-sensitive, brittle, and very UV unstable.

Urethane casting and RTV molding – Urethane castings provide a cost-effective alternative to injection molding for low to medium volume production of high-quality plastic parts. In many cases, the strength and durability of our urethane cast parts are indistinguishable from injection molded parts. We can cast in dozens of different materials and in numerous different colors including transparent/clear. We also offer part finishing and painting services for any parts requiring this service.

Our client list includes Boeing, Raytheon, NASA, Saleen, Lockheed Martin, Circor Energy, Mitsubishi, Oceaneering, the U.S Air Force, and more.
