Solve Your Manufacturing Aid and Production Tooling Challenges
Accurate and Durable Fixtures, Jigs and Gauges
Efficiency in quality assurance relies on accurate and reliable inspection fixtures, jigs and gauges. Normal use and handling can distort these controls over time. Our advanced materials, 3D printing technologies and design practices help you adopt optimized solutions to implement more effective quality control and repeatable inspection processes to maximize productivity in your manufacturing operations.
Keep Assets Properly Serviced
New products frequently require new maintenance tool kits to ensure proper service and handling for maximum performance during the expected life of the vehicle and its equipment.
With 3D Systems’ additive manufacturing solutions you can design, validate and produce service kits faster and on demand to provide customer support teams with the right tools to meet their mission.
Accelerate Short-Run Production Tools with 3D Printed Patterns and Molds
Conventional tools and dies for thermoforming and hydroforming are expensive and can take a long time to manufacture. 3D Systems’ additive manufacturing solutions can meet your short-run production tooling needs faster and more cost-effectively with a broad variety of large printer sizes and tough FDM, SLA and SLS materials.
