Preparing for mass production is a very important process. Any defect left can cause particularly large losses that will result from making the wrong mold. For this reason, we increasingly receive requests from customers who want to print prototypes before beginning mass production.

One such an order is a prototype of a sound projector. It is a high power sound projector used to transmit signals, messages, music over extremely long distances. Prior to the production of the mold, the customer ordered 3D printing of the prototype.

This time we used a large-format FDM 3D printer capable of printing solid products up to 600 x 600 x 600 mm because the product is quite large. Also, there was used PETG material, which is strong, technical, and durable.

After printing the prototype, the customer was able to evaluate its design, quality, ergonomics, and functionality. After evaluating all the necessary parameters and making sure that the product fully meets the vision, the customer can calmly and safely start mass production. 3D printing is a particularly fast and cheap way to produce such prototypes and speed up the product development process.

Most of our customers create something new. We are always happy to help realize projects in the production of the first prototype as well as the final products. This order is no exception - the customer, who is developing an ergonomic Tripmaster for his motorcycle, has decided to make a control mechanism that attaches to the steering wheel.

After the customer submitted his 3D model, we performed a 3D printing service. The part is quite small and has the intended aesthetic, smooth surface. We used the most accurate - SLA printing technology. In this technology, products can be printed with a layer thickness of up to 25 µm. This allows us to achieve a particularly smooth surface without visible layers of printing. In order to withstand the difficult conditions in motorcycle racing, we have chosen the strongest TOUGH resin for the part. Thanks to this resin, the control housing not only looks great but is also strong and impact-resistant.

The customer installed a control mechanism in the printed housing. This part attaches to the steering wheel and makes it easier to control the Tripmaster during the race. We are happy with the ingenuity of our customer and wish him a victorious race!

These days we receive more and more inquiries regarding the preparation of production models for spare parts of various production machines components. Many manufacturers can ship spare parts within a few weeks in the event of a failure. Unfortunately, stopping production for such a period of time is very expensive. And parts prices are never low either. To this end, companies are increasingly choosing to create computer models of the most used parts, which can be produced at any time and in any number by 3D printing, milling, or other production methods. This solution allows you to react particularly quickly to production failures and not to store excess spare parts in stock.

This order was implemented for the same purpose. We performed 3D scanning and reverse engineering for two machine components. The most accurate "Artec Space Spider" 3D scanner, scanning up to 0.05 mm accuracy, was used for scanning. The scanned data were used to reproduce an accurate STEP model.

STEP files are very popular in production. These files also can be used in many CAD programs. Files can be edited, improved, etc. The STEP file is not only suitable for 3D printing but is also widely used in milling, thus giving the customer complete freedom of choice on how to produce the part.

By creating a 3D model in STEP format, you will be able to produce your parts at any time and in any quantity, thus avoiding an unexpected shortage.

Small series production often causes a real headache for manufacturers of certain products. Alternative production methods, such as casting, are highly complicated because small quantities greatly increase production costs. We are happy to offer our customers a solution in this situation - 3D printing.

This time we share one of the examples of small series production - 800 pcs of structural parts. 3D printing was performed according to the 3D models provided by the customer. We used the latest and most advanced „Zortrax M300 Plus" 3D printer, which works on the principle of FDM technology. Also, we used ABS plastic. This plastic is strong and durable, so it perfectly met the customer's wishes. With large production capabilities, we can prepare an order for 800 units in less than 5 working days.

3D printing is a great alternative for small series production. This production method perfectly combines an attractive production price, speed, and the highest quality.
