Time to part + cost to part = SCALE
Another thing we look at is material. The thing that attracted us to the Essentium HSE 180 S is the speed, short downtime, low maintenance, and open platform for the material. The fused filament also responded incredibly well to our AMT PostPro3D finishing service for more information about Fused Filament Fabrication.
In the aerospace industry, there is no room for error. Essentium’s wide range of materials includes key characteristics such as chemically resistant, high-strength, and heat-resistant. This allows engineers to design parts with filaments that are much lighter than alternative metal parts.
Imagine every make of car and model you can think of. Each of those cars has 1000s of specific and unique parts. Essentium is a great low-cost speedy method of producing all the jigs and fixtures needed to keep next year’s car efficient, safe, and aesthetically pleasing.
From kitchen gadgets and sports equipment to cell phone cases and soles of shoe creativity is key to manufacturing parts. Essentium is a great choice to create prototypes, molds, and short-run production.
