In recent years, sports have acquired an important place in our everyday lives, also because it is recommended by the medical field as an ideal lifestyle for man’s psychological well-being in every age range. This ideal, as well as progress made in studies regarding how the chemical and physical structures of the human body work, have caused an escalation in the development of products in the sector; just think of the professional training equipment found in gyms as well as the myriad of products and accessories for amateur fitness and homemade equipment.
Many sports involve the use of equipment and high technology products right in line with our technologies and our experience. Such areas include specialized equipment for scuba diving, cycling, skiing and much more.
In this area, there are no special requirements regarding materials, so the choice of technology to be used for the production of prototypes and pre-series depends mostly on the use of the prototype itself. If for instance there are no particular aesthetic needs, stereolithography is definitely the best choice, while if there is a need to produce high performance parts from a mechanical point of view, the most suitable choice lies in sintering of nylon powders.
As always, the production of replicas from silicone mold is appropriate if you need to produce a particular pre-series with similar performance to the final molding material.
