3D Print for Sheet Metal

3D Print for Sheet Metal

Finding and getting the right tools for sheet metal production can be expensive and time-consuming. Fortunately, advances in high-strength 3D printing provide cost effective and efficient solutions.

Improving Product Development and Time to Market

Today, 3D printing offers a way to prototype and iterate tooling designs before they go into final production. This reduces not only costs but shortens the development time by weeks or even months. Giving you the ability to print more complex part design without fear of escalating cost, is freeing up valuable machine shop resources while increasing your flexibility.

How It Works

Design Strong Tools

Create robust tools and reduce lead time from several weeks to a few days. The 3D printed parts have a high durability and can be used for a variety of sheet metal applications.

Customize Your Tools

Print customized and complex parts without fear of escalating cost. Increase your flexibility and evaluate new tools before ordering them in steel.

Why Use 3D Print for Sheet Metal?

  • Increased efficiency:
    Shorten lead times and ramp-up production while your are waiting for the tool ordered to be delivered.
  • Improved risk management:
    Evaluate necessary tools easily before you order them in steel. Complex tools are expensive, which is one more reason to ensure making the right buying decision.
  • More flexibility:
    Decrease the cost of each tool dramatically and be able to accept orders of different volumes.

“Before introducing additive manufacturing (AM), when customers asked us to make a special radius, there was a lot of guesswork involved, and occasionally we had to reject the project.

Now, we’ve completely shifted our way of looking at requests. We can easily prototype and see if the tool works with the pipe. We even use it for end-use parts.”
