The enthusiasts of 3D printing tend to call it a green and eco-friendly technology, mainly due to the reduced material waste. The object is formed by adding material layer by layer, instead of cutting it out as in case of traditional, subtractive manufacturing technologies, therefore less material is being used in the end. Nevertheless, with […]
Not without a reason is “rapid prototyping” is known as one of the synonyms for “3D printing”. The whole concept of this technology evolved from producing one-of-a-kind part at the time, contrarily to injection molding and other series-production technologies. The greatest advantage of 3D printing your prototypes is definitely the time. Even though large-scale 3D […]
Jigs, gauges and fixtures are essential elements wherever there is a need to hold, position, place or organize. From research and development, through testing, manufacturing assembly, inventory control, up to transportation, companies use specific tooling in order to develop a high-standard end product. The aerospace, automotive and consumer product sectors are just examples of where […]
