Service Bureau

A unique supplier who understands your requirements

It is difficult to have all the necessary technology and equipment in your own facility especially with the constant progress of 3D technologies. A large proportion of industrial design offices have 3D scanners but without rapid prototyping skills in-house. Service bureaus need to meet their clients’ needs for pre-series requirements and low volume manufacturing techniques. Even though they may have 3D printers they may lack post processing abilities for example. To meet all these requirements we are the 3D Printing partner offering you access to all available technologies and post processing services.

What our Service Bureau can do for you

quality control

Broad Additive Manufacturing Menu

Many service bureaus work to be the expert in the technologies they use such as FDM or SLA. However, each technology comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. For this reason you can easily access all Additive Manufacturing technologies with the international network of PLG Global. Send us your RFQs for the following 3D Printing technologies including MJF, SLS, FDM, SLA, DLS, PolyJet, SLM, EBM, DMLS and Binder Jetting.
low volume manufacturing


Additive Manufacturing is generally known as rapid prototyping. For this reason other service
bureaus mostly produce one to five parts. The number of parts to be produced and the cost per
piece are directly proportional. Should you require higher volumes we can offer Vacuum
Casting and RIM technologies. Simply send us your data and we will advise you on what low
volume manufacturing solutions best suit your application.
3d reverse engineering

Complimentary Reverse Engineering

PLG Global provides you with a portable 3D scanning network which is available to use at any location. We can offer you optical and laser based professional systems located worldwide depending on your specific requirements.
Rapid Prototyping

Economies of Agglomeration

At PLG Global we can source top quality services with the most affordable prices. Once a
NDA is in place we can match your requirements with the perfect business partner for your
rapid prototyping


Surface quality remains the most common disadvantage of Additive Manufacturing. Some
post processing might be needed even though SLA or Polyjet technologies are used. We care
about post processing and have expert finishing and post processing teams.
Supply Chain

Solid Design Service

Our reverse engineers can prepare your STL data ready for 3D printing and convert any
surface into a solid model. We can also provide a sketch to 3D design service. All we need is
an idea from you and we can design, prototype & manufacture it as per your requirements.

Traditional Manufacturing Methods

Some designs can be produced at lower cost by using traditional techniques even though we
utilise the latest digital manufacturing technologies. PLG Global Manufacturing Network
offers its partners Metal Casting, CNC Milling, and Plastic Injection Services.
Topology Optimization 1-1

Topology Optimization

PLG Global works with industrial 3D Printing equipment which makes it possible to manufacture parts which cannot be produced any other way. We use 3D printers that produce objects by adding material instead of subtracting it (CNC Machining). It becomes possible for us to manufacture more complex shapes and designs.

Material Selection

Depending on your requirements our material engineers can offer you certain materials both for Additive Manufacturing and for traditional techniques. Please fill in your contact details on our website and we will be in touch to discuss what materials would suit your specific application.
