Keystone College joins national 3-D project to make artificial hands

Keystone College joins national 3-D project to make artificial hands

Keystone is proud to partner with the non-profit organization Enabling the Future Global 3-D Printing Network and its “Give a Helping Hand” program to produce upper limb assistive devices for use by members of the Northeastern Pennsylvania community.

KC3D

A class at Keystone College is looking to give the community a helping hand literally. They’re using 3-D printing tech to create prosthetics for people in NEPA.

3-D  Design Services

I

Design Consultation and Assistance

Do you have an idea for a product but don’t know where to start? Have you made some drawings or sketches on paper and would like to see what they look like in 3-D? Maybe you have already created a product and would like to see how some changes might look? We will be happy to sit down with you and offer consultation and expertise for any phase of the design process.

I

Laser Scanning

Use existing objects and models to create digital files for alteration, modification, or re-design. Files can be created for a range of uses.

I

Direct Digital Manufacturing

Create usable manufacturing components, parts, jigs, fixtures, and end-use products from a range of materials ranging from ridged abs to flexible and both in the same print with an extensive color palate. Cost/benefit analysis consultations are available.

I

Rapid Prototyping

Using ABS/PLA, fortified plastics and other innovative compounds to create accurate, durable and functional product prototypes. Designs can be quickly evaluated and modified even remotely.

I

Mold-Making and Material Casting

Need a re-usable mold or casting in an alternative material? Our Center is capable of taking products to the next step. KC3D combines 3D Printing with traditional art casting techniques blending the best of the new with reliability of the past.

We can also make molds for low temp injection molding and print directly in rubber and silicon like flexible molds.
