Studio Fleet™ is built to scale and leverages Studio System + technology. It possesses a fully software-controlled workflow from part design to finished part, has stackable shelving for rapid batch processing and is quite capable of handling complex metal parts. Configure your Studio Fleet™ to deliver 5x the throughput of the three-part Studio System™ for only twice the capital investment to meet your business demands.

For Replacement Parts

Have you ever needed a replacement part and were willing to jump through hoops to obtain it in order to avoid a high-cost change in your well-oiled production system? You find out it is no longer manufactured and you’ve searched the online world with no luck. With Studio Fleet™, this problem is solved. Your ability to swiftly reproduce quality metal parts is astounding.

The below chart is based on the production of a lathe gear, a vintage lathe that is no longer in production.

For Pilot Runs

The need to test and possibly refine a design is common before mass production. Dealing with a third-party to get it right can be time-consuming, frustrating and costly. With Studio Fleet™, printing and testing parts for pilot runs is a cinch and you gain confidence in using the same material that is required for your final part.

The following example was done on motion stage flexures which often require comprehensive, multi-step manufacturing processes – including wire EDM, water jet, brazing, etc. – to achieve the necessary geometry. The ability to iterate quickly and perform extensive testing is imperative to ensuring part performance.

For Low Volume, Custom Parts

Third-party manufacturers don’t have to control your production schedule or your budget. Low volume production of metal parts (hundreds to a few thousand units) is simple to achieve – even for your complex metal parts, so don’t let your doubts keep you from taking control. Complex parts don’t effect production time or cost.

The following example is based on an extruder nozzle. Used to mix two dense ceramic slurries, the nozzle directs flow and defines the shape of extrusion. The application requires a complex loft design and relatively low quantity.
