Description:

Some of most valuable applications of 3D printing are behind the scenes, creating jigs and fixtures that improve production reliability, minimize cycle times, and reduce reliance on external suppliers for quick-turn fabrication. 

In this webinar, we’ll look at how companies leverage low cost, high resolution desktop 3D printers to bring innovation closer to the production floor, and shorten supply chains by producing jigs and fixtures in-house. We’ll consider best practices, highlight material options, and illustrate methods to make 3D printed parts go further in a production environment. 

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to leverage the unique advantages of 3D printing materials in manufacturing
  • The bottom-line benefits of producing jigs and fixtures in-house
  • How to take advantage of 3D printing’s design freedom to build better jigs and fixtures
  • Real-world use cases and recommendations for your applications
