Production Tooling

Supercharge your production line

Has your productivity hit a plateau? Through additive manufacturing at Materialise, you can produce the jigs, fixtures, assembly aids, and other crucial tools you need to evolve, enhance, and de-risk your production lines. By maximizing uptime, reducing costs, and embracing flexibility, you can break through the productivity barriers slowing you down.

Why choose 3D printing?

Improve part performance

Design freedom allows you to design-in functionality or create complex structures. With design for additive manufacturing, you can optimize the internal channel flow of liquid or air, lower downtime and maintenance costs from failing components, or reduce weight to decrease cycle time.

De-risk supply chains

Reduce risk and reap the rewards — reduce lead times and unnecessary stock storage with additive manufacturing. By manufacturing on-demand from a digital inventory, you get only what you need when you need it, avoiding the risks of waste, obsolescence, and delays.

Increase efficiency

Work smarter, not harder. With the added efficiency of additive manufacturing, you can improve the performance of parts and machinery and optimize uptime — reducing costs and increasing the speed of your cycles.

Focus on innovation

With 3D printing, you have the freedom to do things differently. Find the niche that sets your product apart, provide something unique and customized for every customer, react to changes in the market quickly and easily, and improve your offering with every iteration.
