About us

Somewhere between the initial concept and the finished product a prototype makes an idea real.

Our Commitment

Customer satisfaction is paramount and as a team we are wholly committed to ensuring time-schedules especially are never missed.

Wherever possible of course we would always aim to meet your requirements fully however, on the occasional instance we feel deadlines are at risk, we have a strict policy of honesty at the outset. Progress is monitored throughout the production process, and feedback provided as required.

We at Drumlord have a dynamic and enthusiastic passion for the services we provide. We are on a continuous development drive to advance techniques, processes, technologies, value and timescales.

A range of processes to choose from

Our Services

SLA (Stereolithography)

Fast, accurate and versatile. Perfect for proof-of-concept models, masters for vacuum casting, fully finished exhibition models or even production parts.

Figure 4

Utilising the latest direct digital production technology, Figure 4 produces incredibly accurate, finely detailed parts in a range of functional materials.

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)

Robust, production suitable materials with excellent physical properties: strength, high-temperature, stiffness, abrasion resistance.

Vacuum Casting

The perfect solution when a specific material property, colour, texture or over-moulding is required. From 1-offs to small batch production.

Finishing & Painting

Elevating basic parts and prototypes to fully finished replica models, indistinguishable from the final product, will give your design the maximum impact.

Other services

For less popular processes we have a network of trusted suppliers who we use to fill technology or material gaps when required.

We look forward to working with you.
