SDP/SI Acquires a ProJet 3D Printer
Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument (SDP/SI), a leader in providing mechanical based design, engineering, and manufacturing services for critical motion control and small power transmission applications, recently acquired the 3D Systems ProJet MJP 2500 Plus 3D printer.
A high-quality printer, the 3D Systems ProJet MJP 2500 Plus uses a liquid polymer that has a variety of material properties and can create parts in three different colors, black, white, and translucent.
The new ProJet printer is utilized for orders of individual components, such as a gear or pulley, to more complex drive assemblies. Primarily used for prototypes and low volume production, this machine has the ability to produce high-accuracy components similar to those made with injection molding.
"Using the material jetting process, the polymer is dispensed in 32µ/layers (less than a human hair) with an accuracy of +/-.001per inch or better and then UV cured", said SDP/SI Sr. Sales Engineer, Mike Yandolino. This enables the creation of highly accurate drive components, allowing the engine...
"Using the material jetting process, the polymer is dispensed in 32µ/layers (less than a human hair) with an accuracy of +/-.001per inch or better and then UV cured", said SDP/SI Sr. Sales Engineer, Mike Yandolino. This enables the creation of highly accurate drive components, allowing the engineer to assess the design for form, fit, and function before moving into high-volume production.

Which Drive System is Best for Your Application - It Depends
A common question that arises when designing an application involving power transmission is, “how will this system transfer motion?” Two of the most popular answers to this question are: a Gear Drive System or a Belt and Pulley Drive System. Here at SDP/SI our application engineers are asked “which is better?” And just as with everything else in engineering, It Depends. In this whitepaper we explore both options, the advantages, disadvantages, and circumstances that are better for one over the other. Get the information you need and start designing!
