The manufacturing industry is consistently implementing digital solutions to improve their efficiency. Many companies in the automotive, healthcare, aerospace, retail and consumer goods industries are now using 3D printing to optimize their manufacturing process.
Compared to traditional manufacturing methods, in-house additive manufacturing is faster, cost effective and more sustainable. When developing a new product, you can save hundreds to thousands of dollars on manufacturing costs and weeks of time by printing your prototypes in-house. 3D printers are also relatively easy to use, making them accessible to the entire product development staff.
3D printing is a great tool for prototyping. This is mainly because it is easier and faster to perform iterations on the product. So, the time needed to get your product on the market is drastically shorter for products made with additive manufacturing. 3D printing gives you the ability to speed up your feedback loops and react faster to developments in the market. This agility and flexibility make it easier to scale and grow your business.
Small batch production is what additive manufacturing excels at. It is quite expensive to have a factory make a small batch of products. 3D printing allows you to create products tailored to the customers’ needs.
It is also very suitable for high-volume production. Print runs of small objects makes 3D printing for small to medium prints much faster than most traditional manufacturing methods. This is due to the time it takes to make the moulds and casts, which is why you also save quite a bit on start-up costs.
Why store 1000 products in a warehouse when you can just deliver on demand? 3D printing manufacturing allows us to be flexible. Make only what you need when you need it. You could reinvest the money you save into the development and promotion of your business!
Why outsource manufacturing when you can invest in one versatile machine that can effectively make (almost) anything you can imagine?
Your product development team can work more efficiently when everyone in the chain has access to fast and efficient prototyping and testing. 3D printing is an excellent tool to improve this process and speed up the development of your product.
Over the years, the world has become more aware of the well-being of our planet and there is a growing demand for environmentally friendly products. Companies are investing in more sustainable production solutions. Curious about the environmental impact of 3D printing?More about sustainability
