3D Print

Unlimited possibilities

We use 3D printing for the design and production of prototypes in single units when creating shaping, bending jigs and control templates. We cooperate on 3D printing with a number of universities and suppliers with many years of experience. This cooperation allows us to print from a wide range of materials from plastic to metal for you.

Advantages of 3D printing

  • without need to use manufacturing tools
  • economical and rapid solution for manufacturing items in single units you can print virtually anything that fits in the working chamber of the printer
  • efficient use of material

Benefits of 3D printing with Lakum

  • high precision in the manufacture of components with complicated shape
  • production can also include geometrically complicated components

Extensive supplier base

Additive manufacturing, simply called 3D printing, is the process of manufacturing three-dimensional objects made of metal or plastic based on digital data. The actual printing is performed by adding one continuous layer of material to another.

Wide range of applications

Expert experience in the development and implementation of new and modern procedures in manufacturing is the reason why our clients have been trusting us for many years and gaining thanks to us a competitive advantage on their market.

Ideal applications

  • prototypes
  • production tools
  • measuring jigs
  • moulds or inserts
  • cooling blocks

What does the whole process look like?

The entire process consists of three phases: preprocessing, processing and postprocessing.

Preprocessing is all the activities preceding the actual printing. These are modelling and any digitalisation of an object, editing in relevant programs and subsequent conversion of data files.

At this stage there may occur a so called topological optimisation of the design. This is a qualified assessment of the design of the part with regard to its topology. In other words, in this step material is removed at the places less subject to stress whilst preserving its mechanical properties (strength), which creates so called bionic structures.

As processing, we simply refer to the actual process of implementing 3D printing.

Postprocessing is then all the post-production (post-printing) adjustments to the printed 3D object. These include, for example, removal of various chemical compounds or dust particles, mechanical working as well as subsequent surface finishing.

Case study

Sodecia / anti-corrosion surface treatment

Since the start of our business relationship with the company Sodecia we have implemented 43 projects for leading automobile manufacturers. In practice, this means more than 25,963,583 surface finished parts. Project of surface finish for mass produced parts: End customer FORD – Parts BRKT STRT TL/GT LH/RH and Pivot Asy Gate Strut LH/RH requires surface finish complying with high standards and norms. It involves a combination of two technological procedures: ● zinc electroplating according to standard FORD WSS-M1P85-B3● cataphoretic painting according to standard FORD WSS-M2P177-C3 Project of surface finish of special material: The requirement for coating of product Sodecia Wasserkasten Stirnwand for AUDI was demanding in many respects. The product requires coating according to standard VW13750 Ofl x634 with minimum coating thickness of 35 microns. As this is a relatively large flat part, moreover made of the special material CR3-EG47/47-E-PO, coating in the required scope is technologically demanding. The preparation of the entire process required a large volume of sampling. Thanks to the experience of our experts, we discovered during the sampling that the product is susceptible to scratching. We fine-tuned the parameters and details of the entire process. We included a completely new product packaging approach in the process, and damage has no longer occurred. Completed, coated components reach the end customer at the assembly site in good order and with no faults caused during transport.
