Our ambition is to become a world class prototype and low volume components supplier. At the heart of all good engineering processes is good communication. It is our intention to provide as much information as our clients need on the materials and processes which we provide. The sections below contain key information which will help you make an informed choice on which process and material you should choose. If you feel something is missing, please give us a ring or an email and let us know.

Often it is difficult to choose a process/material without seeing a sample. At Aben we like to make sure you are fully aware of what can be achieved. If you would like a sample of our SLA, SLS or PU materials, please send us your request here.

Money is always important. It may be news to you that the same Am part can cost different amounts to produce depending on how it was built. In order for you to obtain the optimum combination of quality and price, it is important that you know what these factors are. For our pricing guide, please click here.
