Please join us at our Additive Manufacturing for Tools, Jigs & Fixtures Workshop.
With additive manufacturing, tools, jigs, and fixtures can be customised and produced much more quickly and cost-effectively compared to traditional manufacturing methods.
Additive manufacturing can be simple, automated, fast, and inexpensive. It also enables new designs that have previously been considered out of reach by existing methods. In today’s world, there are options to produce these prints in-house or via one of New Zealand’s 3D printing bureaus in a range of strong and durable materials.
Appropriately applied additive manufacturing for tools, jigs, and fixtures can provide great benefits to your business including improved accuracy and repeatability, increased productivity, and a reduction in costs.
