“We were really startled by the tolerance accuracy of the printer. It’s better than machining”
“It’s also easier for us to calculate lead times and production cost. 3D printing basically gives us more control of our business”.
”It is very costly to produce tools for injection moulding, and at the same time, there is a need for testing functionality before production, and also being able to show stakeholders what the final product will look like”, says Tomas Johansson, engineer at Swepac.
Bowman International is a leading manufacturer and supplier of plain bearings in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe. By 3D printing certain components, the company is optimizing design and performance. For end-users, this means less maintenance, as well as easier repairs and assembly.
“The reason we invested in HP MJF is that HP has made it possible for us to deliver large quantities of parts that also look aesthetically good for the client. And the high speed is the best advantage that we see for this technology. “
“3DMetPrint is a service center for Nordic countries running one of the few advanced metal printers. We invested in this technology because it is a new possibility to manufacture metal parts that has not been possible before.”
“SOLIDWORKS is a great CAD package because it makes us fast. The world moves fast, and we have to move faster to stay ahead of the competition. SOLIDWORKS is a key differentiator because we can maintain the speed that is critical to our success as the company grows.”
“My vision is that the Demo Lab can contribute actively to the adoption of Additive Manufacturing among the companies in the region by demonstrating how we can manufacture better and more efficient metal parts.”
“We have only just started using the printer and we have high expectations for it. First and foremost, we expect it to meet HP’s specifications. In real terms, time will tell how things turn out, but we do have a great deal of faith and hope that everything will just work as expected.”
