“We saw early on that the Figure 4 had the right qualifications in terms of output quality, production performance and width of materials”
“Previously, we were forced to guess the cycle time of the injection molding process if we did not have a similar existing product. If we guessed wrong, we could lose business because we were too expensive or put the price too low, which would lead to a loss. With SOLIDWORKS Plastics, we get an accurate
“We are seeing an increase in demand for ESD-safe parts, to keep up with the advancements of the technology in our industry”
“We have come a long way compared to just using traditional manufacturing technologies.”
”Now, we only need one person for CAD, 3D printing and inspection, and the cost of an inhouse printed CMM fixture can be as little as on tenth of a traditionally manufactured fixture.
“We can now make a one-off production part and supply it to a customer less than one-third of the time and at a lower cost.”
“The new 3D printed copper tool cooler could hold up to the cooling medium and provide 38% faster cooling than previous designs.”
“Once we realized the directional strength properties available with the Markforged products, we haven’t used anything else.”.
“Previously, our lead time for a cast part was around a full week. With our new 3D printer, we have shaved off at least a day or two.”
“The potential to cut costs is really significant. If you’re going to save at least 1,000 Euros per tool, it’s a straight benefit.”
