GPI Prototype

GPI Prototype (15)

GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services is pleased to announce an engineering collaboration with 3D Systems, an international leader in industrial 3D printing, to expand and advance their next generation of metal additive manufacturing equipment.

“We are enthusiastic to couple 3D Systems’ expert knowledge in machine technology with our production experience in an effort to grow the use of additive manufacturing across all industries,” said Adam Galloway, President GPI.

GPI has added a ProX300 and two new ProX200 units from 3D Systems in its recently expanded production facility, positioning it well for this new research and development collaboration.  The joint effort with 3DSystems will enhance GPI’s leadership role in the advancement of metal additive manufacturing.  Engineers from both companies, including GPI’s in-house metallurgical engineer and metals application engineer, will be working together on process testing and machine testing with GPI providing real-time customer feedback.  Through this endeavor, GPI and 3DS are seeking to further develop the Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) build parameters to make it more widely adopted by all end users.

“Leveraging the significant experience and engineering expertise of both of our companies to move additive manufacturing to the next level is truly exciting,” says Adam Galloway, President of GPI.  “This project is going to be good for our customers and, even more important, a positive for the industry as a whole.”

GPI Prototype, located in Lake Bluff, IL, recently announced the completion of a facility expansion to double office space, accommodating new staff brought in to handle the rapid growth experienced at GPI. In addition, existing warehouse space has been remodeled to accommodate six more direct metal machines.

Historically focused on building metal prototypes, GPI has been growing the portion of its business dedicated to additive manufacturing. In preparation for this strategic commitment, GPI added two key individuals to its production and engineering departments in 2014. The team was strengthened by the addition of a metallurgical engineer as well as a metals applications engineer. This engineering strength is spearheading R&D and production capabilities on all DMLM machines.

To further support the growth of its metal additive manufacturing services, GPI has been adding to its production capacity. In 2014, GPI acquired two new direct metal machines. These machines are dedicated to the production of aluminum parts. GPI is currently one of the few companies offering production parts with AlSi12 aluminum on a ProX300.  Growth continues for GPI, especially with the scheduled delivery of a new EOS M290 in June.

In response to increased opportunities from the aerospace and medical industries, GPI recently went through the rigor of certification for AS9100:2009RevC, ISO 13485:2003, ISO 9001:2008 and is a registered ITAR facility. These certifications provide GPI with the standardized processes used to create quality products and meet regulatory requirements. During the course of certifications, GPI created an Internal Management System, providing assurances in all manufacturing processes. Requirements include internal audits, record keeping, process procedures and monitoring, management reviews and corrective and preventative action plans.

In more recent news, GPI is making a change in upper management. Scott Galloway, Founder and President, will take on the new role of CEO. Adam Galloway, has been promoted from VP Sales and Marketing and has assumed the role as President of GPI. Adam joined the company in 2003 and has been an integral member of the management team at GPI for the past eight years. “It is exciting to be part of a company that is not afraid to take risks and realize when diversification is necessary to sustain strong growth. GPI started out specializing in prototypes. As we’ve continued to make giant steps forward, the production capabilities we offer today continue to allow GPI to reach higher levels within the AM industry,” – Adam Galloway.

GPI Prototype, headquartered in Lake Bluff, IL, was founded in 2007 and employs 27 people. Additional information about GPI Prototype and their range of services is available by contacting a representative at 847-615-8900.

GPI Prototype announced that it has completed the installation of a third DMLS machine from EOS.  The additional EOSINT M 270 joins the EOSINT M270 & M280 machines currently being used at GPI to build metal parts additively.  The addition of a third machine establishes GPI as a leader in metal rapid prototyping and expands their DMLS material selection to include aluminum.

DMLS offers many advantages vs traditional tooling including the ability to manufacture complex geometries and shapes not possible with CNC machining. Conformal cooling channels can also be integrated into designs to dramatically reduce injection molding cycle/lead times and lower costs.  GPI offers 6 material choices for DMLS including Stainless Steel (GP1 & PH1), Titanium (Ti64), Cobalt Chrome (MP1), Maraging Steel (MS1) & Nickel Alloy (IN718). GPI is in the testing phase for aluminum and will be dedicating the EOSINT M280 machine to aluminum parts in the next month.

GPI is also proud to announce that they have received their International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Registration. ITAR regulates the export and import of U.S. military and defense related equipment and information. Companies receiving this certification have corporate procedures and controls in place to ensure compliance.  The ITAR Registration allows GPI to support military and defense-related projects in the United States.

Additional services include Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), 3D Printing (3DP), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV), Investment Casting, Tooling, CNC Machining, Finishing, Painting and Laser Scanning.

Thanks to Phillips Plastics, GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services was able to put together a case study on the benefits of using conformal cooling for injection molding.

Conformal cooling is is a primary application for DMLS, allowing the manufacture of tooling inserts and components in a timely manner. On top of the value of short turn-around times, additional value was created by the unique geometric freedom of design: "Advanced Tooling".

One of the relevant "Advanced Tooling" applications is the integration of conformal cooling channels. This helps to improve both the quality and economics of injection molded parts by reducing cycle time, scrap warp and sink, increasing productivity by 20%-60%. DMLS tools are used to produce millions of parts in injection molding operations or many thousand metal parts in die casting.

DMLS opens new frontiers for the implementation of efficient tooling by offering extended design possibilities for the manufacture of high performance tools - all without having to consider the many limitations characterize conventional processes. Complexity of the channel design does not impact the tool manufacturing process, as the DMLS system builds channels directly into the tool.
