Dear Dr Ana Garca Romero

We offer this very service, and are based in Cambridgeshire, UK.

We have found that our in-house method of "vacuum dipping" the finished LOM part in wax prior to shelling up greatly improves the burnout characteristic of this material.

We can also supply multiple precision waxes from the same LOM unit prior to burnout if required, to maximise ypur investment (i.e. a "pay once, use twice" scenario). Previous projects of this type have included turbocharger housings with very complex internal twin volute geometries.

Please send zipped binary STL files for quotation purposes.
