3D printing for jigs & 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.
