3D printed jigs and fixtures
Jigs and fixtures are invaluable tools in manufacturing. By 3D printing these tools, you can drastically reduce cost and improve lead times. You also release bandwidth of traditional manufacturing methods, such as CNC milling.

Cut lead times and reduce costs with 3D printed jigs & fixtures
Production tools such as jigs & fixtures have traditionally been machined, often in metal. Many tools are therefore heavy and ergonomically unfit. The manufacturing is a costly process and lead times can be several weeks especially when outsourced.
By 3D printing these production tools, you can drastically reduce cost, weight and lead times. In some cases, you will see a 90% weight and cost reduction. If you have access to an inhouse 3D printer, you can iterate as many times as you want, to refine your tools, or adapt to specific ergonomic needs.
The 3D printing team at PLM Group has several years of experience with helping companies find the optimal 3D printing solution for their jigs and fixture needs. We work with the world’s leading brands to ensure you get a 3D printing solution that fits your needs.
“Traditionally manufactured inspection fixtures are costly and resource-demanding for the machine shop MF Precision. The company can now 3D print fixtures inhouse that cost one tenth of traditional fixtures. These fixtures free up valuable resources and increase measuring quality.”
Martin Fredin, CEO, MF Precision
We have more than 5,000 satisfied customers.
