Components for classic cars out of a modern 3D-printer? 🤔
RPG Industries, Inc. is always looking for ways to stay cutting edge in a saturated industry. The team decided to bring in a Markforged Metal X system and a Mark Two professional-series 3D printer, which they have used for a wide range of applications.
With additive manufacturing, they were able to print a vintage carburetor cap, which could not be sourced anywhere in the world. They first prototyped it using Onyx and then printed the final part out of 17-4 PH Stainless Steel.

CNC Machine Shops are increasingly turning to Metal Additive Manufacturing to create additional revenue streams while fostering innovation. Machine shops that traditionally “only” offered machining relying on 2D drawings from clients are seeing downward pressure on margins as they get cross-shopped for best price.
RPG Industries, Inc. Reinvent manufacturing by Metal 3D printing a vintage carburetor cap for a customer, which could not be sourced anywhere in the world and would be cost prohibitive to machine.
