We INNOVATE TO EMPOWER THE INNOVATORS
Collider’s Programmable Tooling is a new additive manufacturing process that exceeds current 3D printing speeds by an order of magnitude and allows for the use of production-grade plastics and levels of quality. It’s the best of 3D printing and the best of plastic casting. Small-batch, production grade plastic parts are now a reality.
A PROPRIETARY manufacturing PROCESS
At the core of Collider’s intellectual advancement is a hybrid plastic casting and 3D printing technology, and the Orchid machine. Programmable Tooling sets the standard for low-volume production with a drop-in replacement for plastic casting.
Collider exists to serve the low volume customer with a process that brings manufacturing and tooling into the digital era. We see an under-served market and massive opportunity to improve the way people and companies make parts. This will enable innovation, customization, and better prices for consumers. Imagine a world without tooling.
Our process is patent pending.
2K THERMOSET MATERIALS
Collider’s technology prints in 2K thermoset materials. These materials have been mass produced for decades and are used to make parts in cars, computers, televisions, airplanes, and everything in-between. From a chemical perspective, these materials permanently cross link once cured. This makes these materials extremely suitable for industrial applications due to their corrosion resistance, chemical and dimensional stability, variations ranging from extremely soft durometer silicones to extremely high tensile strength and temperature resistant epoxies.
