Better inspection tooling. Less cost. Less time.
FDM inspection fixtures like CMM tooling and go-no-go gauges
streamline the production process because they’re faster and
less costly to produce than with traditional machining. This
makes it easy to increase the number of inspection tools on
the shop floor, enhancing the quality process.
FDM vs traditional manufacturing.
FDM 3D printed tools provide a number of
advantages over traditionally machined parts.
Make new fixtures in hours rather than days or weeks it takes to machine them. 3D printing lets you iterate quickly to optimize the design. FDM printers can build fixtures small and simple to large and complex using a broad range of versatile materials.
Cut production time by 50%
Avoid the material and lead time cost of traditional machining. A better alternative is 3D printed inspection tools that can be created whenever they’re needed, for much lower cost.
Cut production costs by 78%
Eliminate dimensional errors that accumulate with multi-piece, built-up inspection tools. FDM fixtures can be printed as a single piece or in a few parts, ensuring greater accuracy.
Cut inspection time from 30 days to 1.
