3D Printed Tools for Better Ergonomics, Speed and Design Complexity
Factory production lines know the right jig or fixture speeds production, which increases productivity. But that’s just the beginning. Well-designed tools are more ergonomic, offering both increased worker safety and productivity, as well as cost savings.
Traditional machining produces heavy, costly, multi-piece tools that become an even greater liability as repetitive motion injuries erode line productivity with worker disability. Redesign means even more protracted timelines for machined parts.
BOOM recently built an alignment jig to help in their Materials and Process lab when making test samples for the XB-1 Supersonic Demonstrator.
