The Quebec-based 3D printing service, Troadey Inc., says they’re taking the business of outputting 3D objects one step beyond by offering affordable 3D printing using industrial 3D printers.

Express Print is aimed at production speed. For parts which require a more demanding set of parameters, Troadey also offers high precision 3D printing and a range of specific materials for the industrial market.

The service comes as a result of Troadey’s experience within the last year which they say has shown them that a market exists for customers who don’t require parts which feature elaborate design tolerances or high strength. They added that the Zcorp “binder jetting” technology they chose allows them to stack parts one above the other in the build chamber, and that permits them to amp up the speed of production.

The Troadey Z310 Plus features a build volume of 8″ X 10″ X 8″, and the process they use for Express Print takes advantage of the powder process and the company’s special blend bonding agent. Their bonding agent has been altered to cause less damage to the print heads, and that means better speed and more consistent prints. The parts printed via Express Print are white and feature a rough finish, but the company says a range of finishing methods means parts can be fine-tuned for additional strength and surface finishes.

Those finish levels include heat treatment, infiltration with liquid similar to Cyanoacrylate, and if parts need maximum strength, durability and smoother finish, they offer an epoxy-like coating.

Shipping and finish options are billed via a flat rate system.
