This presentation will look at the major obstacles associated with traditional tooling, and how 3D printing can be applied to: production of manufacturing aids, like jigs and fixtures; end-of-arm tools; composite tooling; and highly specific, custom tools. By 3D printing manufacturing tools, attendees will learn to gain the required agility to embrace customization, respond more quickly to market changes, and shrink the cost and risk associated with traditional production.
- Explore the primary use of 3D printing in tooling and learn how to avoid the biggest roadblocks to success
- Learn how 3D printing custom tools can help bring production online quickly and keep it running at peak speed, while optimizing designs through consolidated components
- Build your own strategies that incorporate 3D printing for tooling to speed customization, enhance agility and shrink costs across their manufacturing processes
