Manufacturing Aids & Tooling

3D Print specialty tools for low volume production

3D print the perfect tool

Create the perfect tool for the job, even if it's hollow, contoured, customized or otherwise too complex for traditional tool-production processes like CNC machining.

  • Consolidate several components to reduce tool complexity
  • Integrated features – fastener, RFID, pockets, text and labeling
  • Design for ergonomics or maximum functionality rather than

3D print for less waste

3D printing allows you to validate tools, processes, and end products more thoroughly to avoid costly errors that lead to waste, scrap, rework, and retooling.

  • 3D printing has less material waste than traditional manufacturing / machining
  • Hybrid 3D printing traditional manufacturing solutions allow for lowest cost
  • Reduction in the cost of poor quality

3D print on-demand

3D printing manufacturing tools on demand supports lean manufacturing strategies. Manufacturing aids and tools are built directly from CAD and can be ready for use in as little as a day.

  • Bring new manufacturing lines online faster
  • Enable low volume precision assembly
  • On demand tooling with digital inventory
