Struggling with production costs and lead times of metal parts?
Lighten up with 3D-printed metal
3D Printing can help your production gain speed and agility like never before. A successful Metal 3D Printing project always starts with the right application, but identifying it can be challenging.
This practical guide focuses on eight typical applications where significant improvements in terms of weight, performance, functionality and/or aesthetics can be achieved.
Choose Metal 3D Printing when you need to...
Skip tool-making and milling, go
straight from design to production
…and money too
Metal is expensive, don’t pay to scrap
material with milling and machining
Keep it light
Latticed interiors can reduce part
Customize, don’t compromise
Without molds and machining, you’re
free to design what you really want
Need some help getting started?
In Metal 3D Printing, more so than in conventional technologies, design plays a crucial role. By designing for 3D Printing from the beginning, you can bring down costs, eliminate assembly time, improve functionality, or simply develop a better product.
