ORLANDO, Fla. --- Mydea Technologies Corporation, which specializes in rapid prototyping of specialized equipment and accessories for designers, engineers and manufacturers, recently acquired state-of-the-art SPR/CNC milling equipment to enable creation of instant prototypes in a wide range of materials, including polypropylene, polycarbonate, ABS and aluminum.
Michael Siemer, founder and president of Mydea Technologies Corporation and former Disney imagineer, said Mydea's SPR/CNC prototyping work is increasing rapidly. The firm recently moved into larger quarters at the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program facilities at Research Park in east Orlando to accommodate the increased workload, Siemer said.
"We can now provide prototypes and low-volume production parts made from specific materials that are not currently available in additive manufacturing," Siemer said.
Siemer explained that most additive manufacturing processes cannot accommodate specific materials that some customers require, and even when they do there still tends to be limitations involved
"Our new equipment is the only way to produce a low-volume run of parts without any tooling required in specific thermoplastic and aluminum materials," Siemer said.
Siemer said the new equipment complements Mydea's urethane casting, rapid tooling and other plastic and metal direct digital manufacturing options.
Mydea Technologies Corporation is a pioneer in the rapidly growing field of Direct Digital Manufacturing, where both Additive Manufacturing and Computerized Numerical Control (SPR/CNC) can transforms digitized engineering specifications into three-dimensional objects quickly and accurately.
Mydea Technologies Corporation serves such companies as L-3 CyTerra, DRS, and Disney with quick-turn plastic and aluminum components.
Typically, new prototypes can be produced in as little as three to five days, Siemer said.
