Improve factory floor operations with 3D printed carbon fiber tooling.

The challenge.

Solving the everyday problems on a manufacturing floor doesn’t come easily. You’re asked to produce more and do it under sometimes unrealistic time expectations. You’re also on the hook to increase quality and do whatever it takes to get production up and running again when things break down. To top it off, it’s likely one of your KPIs includes doing all that while reducing cost.


If you’re a manufacturing engineer or production manager, this may sound familiar. It’s a seemingly perfect storm of unachievable, contradictory goals. Is it really possible to succeed, to actually make things better, particularly when resources are always scarce?


We’re here to say it is possible. But it requires following a particular strategy, one that challenges the status quo. It involves changing the way you think about the tooling your organization uses to keep the factory floor running, so you can make your operation more efficient, safe and cost-effective.
