Manufacturing Capacity – Capital Equipment

Accutool operates from a 17000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Dublin 15. We have a wide range of production and test equipment, which is available on a 24-hour x 7 days basis if required.

We use SolidWorks to design or re-engineer custom projects.

When technical drawings are not available we use this solid modelling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering computer program.

3 D Printing Dept

The DLS process (digital light synthesis™) prints up to 100 times faster than traditional 3D printing methods. It uses a software-controlled chemical reaction process to grow parts. The resultant parts are similar to injection moulding – virtually layer-free with consistent isotropic and predictable mechanical properties.

SLA 3 D Printer and scanner 120mm x 150mm x 150mm.

 The SLA process starts with a 3D printer containing a tank of UV-curable resin. When a print begins, the build platform is submerged in the tank and a laser beam traces the contours of a part, solidifying the layer of liquid resin. Once the layer is complete, the build platform is lowered, making room for the next layer SLA (stereolithography)
