3D printing in industrial automation
The use of 3D printing in your work:
3D printing in industrial automation is used primarily to make tools for production lines. These include grippers and positioning elements that are precisely adapted to the needs of the line, which significantly optimise work. A 3D printed tool does not require any further processing, such as grinding or polishing. Furthermore, in 3D printing, the creation of individual elements takes little time and the cost is low.
3D printing also allows you to create a production line for a product that you do not have yet. Thanks to a prototype made using 3D printing, production lines can be adapted, dimensions can be verified and corrections to the design made even before production starts.
The filaments used include those with high temperature resistance (PC-ABS-47) but also electrostatic charges (PET-G-32-ESD). The two heads in the Factory 2.0 Production System industrial 3D printer allow the most complex shapes to be created using the main and supporting material.
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.
