Our customer Cirnapro designs metal and plastic parts for the mechanical engineering industry in lot sizes 1-200 and has integrated a Markforged 3D printer into its manufacturing processes to complement its production.
Especially the possibility to reinforce with carbon and glass fibre opens up a whole new production spectrum for the company!

“Minimum lot size, set-up and coating costs for a metal hinge have been reduced. Functions that were only available with several individual components could be integrated into one component! – says mechanical engineer and toolmaker Hans-Joachim Englert.
The costs saved could be invested in a new milling machine – further proof that 3D printing perfectly complements conventional manufacturing, but does not replace it.
