Tools printed in 3D could optimize the production processes
Why use 3D printing in producing tools?
Create precise tooling at low cost
If you choose traditional production methods, you are limited by standards, costs and time. You cannot create tools that are precisely tailored to your needs and your product because the price of their production would be too high. 3D printing is a non-standard solution where the price of a product does not change according to the number or type of items produced. New versions of tools can be ready the second day after commission printing.
Discover the possibilities
The Factory 2.0 Production System 3D printer is a high-precision industrial instrument that, combined with filaments that have the properties you choose, will allow you to produce:
- Positioning tools – supporting human work on the production line, such as assembly of components, by guiding devices or shielding sensitive elements;
- Parts for machines and production lines – such as grippers or hoppers, which are precisely tuned to the production process. You can easily test new solutions without wasting time and money thanks to quickly prototyping more versions of tooling;
- Robotic grippers – by weighing less than the weight of elements created in the standard way, they prolong the life of devices and increase their range of application;
- Forms for creating paper pulp – in a computer program, the shape of a mold can be quickly improved and given the necessary porosity, and reducing costs the range of products can be increased;
- Thermoforming tools – 3D printing eliminates the need for additional processing such as punching holes, and the materials used are stable and free of deformation;
- Sandcasting molds – all improvements can easily be made from day to day and the most complex shapes, such as channels, can be printed in 3D without problems;
- Lost forms – can be printed in 3D without the wax injection step and with a significant reduction in design errors.

Clients about us
Parts printed in 3D on Factory 2.0 Production System meet all our requirements – both in terms of strength, dimensional accuracy, turnaround time and weight loss. Many elements are installed in cars as final products.
Łukasz Tomkiewicz, Managing Director, Arrinera Automotive S.A.
Creating a functional prototype has never been so cheap, fast and easy.
Miki Thurzo, Senior Engineer, METRIS 3D
3D printing cuts the design time, and as a result speeds up the creation of the final product.
Factory 2.0 Production System allows large format printing. Thanks to OMNI3D’s solution, we can analyse the ergonomics of models that were printed in full scale. This is very important in our sector.
Using plastic gears printed on the Factory 2.0 3D printer significantly reduces the costs of repair of the production line and its downtime.
