Märklin has partly replaced CNC-milled steel clamps in the manufacturing process and combined CNC-milled parts together with 3D printed components in the same tool.

“3D printing allows us to produce a customized tool within a day, compared to several weeks, meaning employees can focus more on producing the model trains instead of manufacturing tools.”
