Production of a compensating element for press-fit technology
IIf the series is too small for a complex tool production or if a conventional production with tool production via a CNC production partner takes too long, the production of an urgently needed component with the 3D printer is a real alternative. As in this case: For a small series with press-fit components, compensating elements were needed at short notice. With the help of 3D printing, the plastic components could be produced in only 5 hours.
The benefits: 4 weeks less time needed and 80% lower costs compared to conventional production with toolmaking using a CNC production partner.
