JIGS AND FIXTURES
3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures Unlock the Future of the Factory Floor
Building jigs and fixtures using additive manufacturing offers several advantages including time and cost savings for faster speed to part, as well as increased flexibility and agility in the design stages. Essentium’s unique High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) technology magnifies the power of additive manufacturing by enabling speed and strength, at scale, to meet the volume production needs that other 3D printers just cannot match.
WHY HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION?
避免冗长的交货期, and costly tool changes, and quickly iterate through designs using the end-use material, to land on the ideal final part.
Design for Complex Geometries
Manual fixturing, taping, and masking can cause bottlenecks and delays in production. Custom jigs and fixtures solve these challenges to save time and money.
Select Ideal Materials
Whether an application requires a material that is flexible, ESD-safe, or high-temperature or chemical resistant, Essentium HSE 3D Printing Printers allow users to utilize an open ecosystem of materials to use the best material for your application.
JIGS AND FIXTURES Application
TOOL INSULATOR BOOT
The anti-static properties of Essentium TPU 58D-AS prevent possible damage to electronic parts caused by electrostatic discharge. Parts printed with this material can be custom designed to protect parts from a variety of manufacturing tools, from handheld devices to installed tools and holders.
HSE 280i HT 3D PRINTER
The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer is the first industrial 3D printer equipped with true independent dual extruders, giving users the flexibility to print jigs and fixtures at scale.
HSE 180•ST 3D PRINTER
At five-15x faster than the competition, HSE 180•ST 3D Printer is ideal for low-temp jigs and fixtures, low-pressure mold tooling, NPI, 和bridge-to-production.
In the mass manufacturing world, 3D printing is usually not used to make a finished piece. Rather, it is an enabling technology. Additive manufacturing is used to help other machines, robots and workers do their jobs better by creating lightweight yet durable jigs and fixtures that securely hold a tool or an unfinished part in […]
Jigs and fixtures are used in all kinds of manufacturing environments to make repeatable assembly processes more accurate, faster, and safer. Specialized tools like gauges, drill guides, masking templates, and cradles have been traditionally machined from metal. While materials like aluminum provides all the necessary qualities of strength, heat, and chemical resistance, it makes the […]
Whatever a company makes on its factory floor, chances are the employees use specialized jigs and fixtures on the assembly line to complete the manufacturing process. Jigs and fixtures represent a tremendous opportunity for additive manufacturing to increase efficiencies and reduce costs on the production floor. But what exactly is a jig, and how does […]
