It's Payback Time: Justifying additive manufacturing with jigs and fixtures

Justifying additive manufacturing with jigs and fixtures

Increasing the number of manufacturing tools like jigs, fixtures and organizational aids, improves efficiency, capacity, unit cost and responsiveness. Using additive manufacturing (or 3D printing) to produce these tools makes them more accessible and quicker to implement. The result is more manufacturing aids where they previously didn’t exist. Savings can be so high that they can easily justify the purchase of an additive manufacturing system in far less time than expected.
