Yovinn sees that additive manufacturing is maturing at a rapid pace, from prototyping to end-use parts. That’s the main reason the company has now invested in a Markforged X7 as well as strenghening their partnership with PLM Group. With the Markforged X7, Yovinn can now produce prototypes and high performing parts in a short amount of time and at a low cost.
Many customers are used to traditional machining of parts in aluminium, but the Yovinn staff began investigating if they could print it in carbon fiber reinforced plastic instead. The company soon realized they could cut the lead time by weeks and reduce the cost. They also made the part 30 percent lighter, a real bonus.
The designers at Yovinn think it’s good to experience a part in real life. When they introduce a printed part to a customer, they can experience it, rather than just see a digital 3D model on screen.
