Manufacturing Tooling

Time to get it done

How would your business benefit from creating prototypes from the same processes and materials that you use for the final product in just hours or days? Low-volume production tooling in-house is the fastest and most cost-efficient way to produce your tools. You can get it done with additive manufacturing and keep on trucking.

Questions surrounding the quality of tools produced with additive manufacturing are common and understandably so. Your tools need to be strong, durable, customizable and something you can trust. Our 3D printers use Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology and PolyJet Technology. Both technologies produce the results necessary to meet the toughest standards.

Simple, Strong and Accurate FDM Technology

FDM Technology is all about strength and detail. It uses production-grade thermoplastics and builds strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.

It’s also clean, simple to use and office friendly due to supporting production-grade thermoplastics that are mechanically and environmentally stable. Complex geometries and cavities that would otherwise be problematic become practical with FDM Technology.

Detail, Functionality, Safety and Flexibility in PolyJet

PolyJet Technology creates exceptionally detailed, smooth and precise prototypes that convey final-product aesthetics at the earliest stage of the product development process, but is also concerned with functionality and safety. PolyJet Technology solves the ergonomic testing problem with more than 100 materials and digital materials. PolyJet materials accurately replicate the rubber-like elastomeric properties of thermoset and thermoplastic materials needed for modeling rigid elements of the products. You can have confidence in your materials and products!

Give Me One Good Reason

  • Streamline production and customize on the fly.
  • Cut out third-party manufacturers and their timetable.
  • Shrink time and cost of production.

“Normally it would take weeks to get traditional grippers made. With the FDM gripper, you can have a new end-of-arm tool complete and bolted up to the robot within a day or so.”
