OXFAB™ Industrial Parts
Low weight, high performance component solutions for industry
Highly chemical resistant, heat resistant, and lightweight, our OXFAB™ technology takes the evolution of industrial polymers one step further, to the forefront of additive fabrication technologies.
For many industrial parts, design is limited both by the material and the manufacturing process. With the OXFAB™ technology, these limitations are irrelevant. Using a design allowables database and our proprietary design algorithm, function determines structural form to maximize strength, flexibility, and weight as required. The design is then “printed” via SLS manufacturing directly from the digital file, simplifying what would otherwise be complex, labor-intensive assemblies into a single stage to create the completed part.
As materials are continuously developed, so are the devices and machines whose parts they compose. Often, older machines fall into disrepair when replacement parts are no longer available.
Our OXFAB™ process technology provides the answer.
Our White Light Scanning system generates a complete surface scan of the part to be replaced. Once scanned, the image is imported into a design allowables database and our proprietary design algorithms and SLS manufacturing process recreate a part to the same mechanical resilience as the original.
OPM's South Windsor facility is certified to ISO 9001, ISO 13485, and AS9100C quality systems and 100% dimensional inspection certification.
