3D printing, or also known as ‘Rapid Prototyping or Additive Manufacturing”, is a process used to make three-dimensional solid objects which are created by layering material formed under computer control. Although it has increased in popularity over the past three to five years, the 3D printing process goes back as far as the 1980s when the first additive manufacturing equipment was developed. Since then, 3D printing has been deployed across various industries and has been used for a variety of creative endeavors around the world.
3D printing will help reduce the time and cost it takes for parts to be manufactured. All of our 3D printed parts come with a material data sheet for validation within a GMP environment.
Market research - 3D PRINTING
According to a recent update to the Worldwide semi-annual 3D Printing Spending Guide from the International Data Corporation (IDC), global spending on 3D printing will experience a five-year Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22.3% with revenues reaching $28.9 billion in 2020.
PAIN POINTS & COST DRIVERS
Pinpoint root causes for process inefficiencies, equipment failures, and line-down scenarios.
Identify key components of factory workflow that could benefit from shorter lead times and lower cost.
MATERIALS IN MRO EQUIPMENT
Determine materials in MRO equipment that could be easily matched by high strength 3D printing.
Identify key drivers in the following categories:
Unplanned line shutdowns due to equipment failures are some of the most costly aspects of a manufacturing process. Identify applications for additive technology on your factory floor by going to the source of the challenges that keep you up at night — manufacturing steps that frequently stop or slow production, or are expensive to fix. High strength AM can be used to quickly produce replacement parts or custom alignment jigs, making these challenges excellent starting points for building your AM strategy. Once you’ve identified areas of focus, building an ROI projection for your AM strategy is simple, as you’ll have already calculated the cost of production failures.

3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing
Using our experienced in-house engineers, design software and 3D printing we can create prototypes and manufacturing parts at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing methods and also at a fraction of the time.
We also integrate 3D printing into our overall Building Information Modelling suite, offering advantages for building and facility managers. All our designs/modifications are verified by our own in-house Quality Review, this means you will get the right information and help ensure accuracy.
Prototyping injection mold tools and production runs have traditionally been expensive. The 3D printing process allows cost-effective creation of parts and/or tools.
Set up and development time for prototyping and manufacturing have been slashed by 3D printing. A design can be finalised and printed on the same day.
TEST THE MARKET
Designing and redesigning is more possible than ever with 3D printing. You can produce your model/part, and test it in your markets. With feedback you can quickly and efficiently update.
2D designs can often run into problems when the model is actually produced and held physically. With 3D printing you can quickly and cheaply get hold of your model early in the development process.
3D Printing is shaking our pre-conceived notions of what can and can't be made
