3D printing is the latest capability in our product development department. It allows the low-cost production of prototype parts with incredible detail.

The benefits of the process are clear in the early stages of a project. A physical and dimensionally accurate component can be 3D printed and handed to the client, either in forged or machined state. This allows them to implement into a sub-assembly for final suitability testing.

3d printing shackle prototype in forging industry

Forging is an industry with high outlay costs. Production of tooling and purchase of raw materials often reaches in excess of £20,000. 3D printing can help avoid costly mistakes caused by the production of incorrect dies and scrap material.

3D Printing Timelapse - Additive Manufacturing

3D printing enables the low-cost production of prototype parts with incredible accuracy.

The recent addition of a 3D printer and the latest QForm forging simulation software, working in unity with existing SolidWorks software, has the potential to transform the way the company does business in the early stages of product development.

A physical and dimensionally accurate component can be 3D printed and handed to the client, giving them the ability to finish machine and even implement into a sub-assembly for final suitability testing.
