Say yes to more opportunities in low-volume, customized production parts, and factory automation.
One of the rewards of the 3D printing revolution is the ability to begin production without the delay and expense of tooling and to produce customized, geometrically complex products free from traditional manufacturing constraints. Now you can increase revenue without time-consuming inventory management. With in-house, on-demand production, inventory becomes a digital file at your fingertips.
This is particularly important in automotive and aerospace industries where strong and light-weight parts can deliver greater fuel efficiency. Also, parts can be created from tailored materials to provide specific properties such as heat resistance, higher strength, or water repellency.
Designers and manufacturing engineers are free to optimize parts with organic shapes and complex geometries, including hollow interiors and negative drafts. Traditional tooling constraints don’t apply in the world of 3D printing.
Printing parts on demand is another advantage as it doesn’t need a lot of space to stock inventory, unlike traditional manufacturing methods. This saves both space and costs as there is no need to print in bulk unless needed.
With accuracy that rivals injection molding and an array of real thermoplastic materials, 3D printing helps manufacturers say yes to more opportunities in low-volume, customized production parts, and factory automation.
