Manufacture Custom End-Use Parts and Complex Designs Without Tooling With 3D Printing
An end-use part is a good that is sold as a product, used as a sub-assembly in a product, or used as a component in a product. With 3D printing, you can create end-use parts without tooling, making it possible to create custom parts and complex designs in a cost-efficient manner.
From Bridge Manufacturing to Mass Customization, 3D Print End-Use Parts for a Wide Variety of Applications
Eliminate high tooling costs and months-long lead times, revise products quickly to accelerate time to market, and manufacture parts that used to be too complex, prohibitively expensive, or impractical to produce with traditional methods.
Low Volume Production
3D print production runs of one to 10,000+ end-use parts with high flexibility, high speed, and the ability to quickly scale up to meet demand.
The holy grail of producing customized products in large volumes is now a reality. With 3D printing, you can scale personalized products for mass-market opportunities without drastically increasing operational costs and delivery timelines.
Push the boundaries of design complexity, optimize structures, and customize parts at no extra cost to develop unique and innovative products. Leverage the flexibility of 3D printing to explore new business models that bring you closer to your customers’ needs.
The Next Generation of 3D Printed Surgical Instruments
Beat your competition to market. By eliminating tooling, 3D printing improves the agility of your process, both in product design and production. Adjust your products to ensure continued compatibility through the original equipment manufacturer’s updates. Reduce inventory and scrap by 3D printing parts on demand. Build complex geometries to produce more advanced forms and product performance tailored to your customer niche.
Spare and Replacement Parts
Shift from a physical to a digital inventory with 3D printed spare parts on-demand. Improve your supply chain management, mitigate risks of overproduction, reduce waste, and decrease storage costs. Upgrade your service and ensure customers’ satisfaction by providing repair parts quickly and affordably.
Leverage 3D printing as a bridge-to-production method to quickly and affordably produce low-volume of parts before transitioning to mass manufacturing. 3D print pilot runs for product testing, market validation, and pre-sales before committing to mass production.
Supply Chain Resilience
Reduce your reliance on suppliers, withstand logistics disruptions, geopolitical issues, and market changes by bringing manufacturing capabilities in house. Leverage 3D printing to quickly and affordably produce low-volume of parts during times of shortage. Tighten your supply chain and shorten lead times with 3D printing stopgap parts on demand.
Reduce Costs and Improve Stability by Bringing 3D Printing In-House
Calculate how much you would save by producing end use parts in-house with 3D printing, rather than outsourcing or using an alternative production method.
