Our Manufacturing Services For The Education Industry

3D Printing

3D printing and Additive manufacturing is perfect for the rapid prototyping of high-quality models in plastic or metal materials. Due to its speed and affordability, it is the most widely used production technique for the educational industry. It is also used for idea/concept testing and making parts with complex geometries in low volumes. 3D printing and 3D prototyping are popular in automotive, medical and dental, construction, research, and development educational uses.

CNC Machining Services

CNC machining operations are excellent for making parts for research and development, especially when precision and dimensional accuracy are imperative. Parts can be made through CNC swiss turning and milling operations, and can also be finished in various ways. CNC machining is often used for aerospace, medicine, and surgery educational purposes.

Plastic Injection Molding

Plastic Injection molding is used to make plastic parts in significantly high volumes. At Premium part, we can create high-quality plastic parts with several resins. This enables you to select the best material based on the mechanical and cosmetic needs of your students, class, or research. Our insert and overmolding techniques can also facilitate the production of composite parts for any educational requirements.

Urethane casting

Our vacuum casting has been widely used at Premium Parts for making low-volume copies of a part with excellent cosmetic finishes. These vacuum casted parts are well suited for small classes of 20-25 students for design verification and hands-on practical testing. They can also be used as concept models and design mockups/iterations.


Compliment Your Part With Our Finishing Options

Our range of production techniques for the education industry can be further enhanced with our finishing services. We understand the need to compliment part quality with cosmetic excellence to enhance interest, attractiveness, and participation. This is why we offer several finishing options to augment your part’s surface finish and protect it from wear, tear, and harsh environmental conditions.
