Tool Production

The aim is to better serve existing markets and open up new markets.

Production Tooling

Zero Tolerance reduce cycle times with 3D Printed tooling

Hydraulic Post Driver

Stanley Black & Decker has replaced a four-part assembly with a single, ready-to-use component. The cost and time savings are huge.

Robot Gripper

Additively manufactured robotic grippers save BEULCO £200,000 in 1.5 years.

Production parts

3D printing in production is a reality for Clenaware Systems – end use parts parts on-demand from the 3D printer. Reduce lead times.

Tooling

How Cashco increased production rates while keeping its toolmakers happy.

Resources

The challenge with 66 different saw blades is to make production as productive as possible despite the high variety.

Spare Parts

Serial spare parts production with industrial 3D printing at mayer-technology GmbH & Co. KG

Automation

The requirements for printed components for robotics are stability and, at the same time, the lowest possible weight.

Exploration Robots

Functional parts that do not require any post-processing makes Markforged an ideal additive manufacturing technology.

Lifting tool
