Some major advantages in 3D printing as a manufacturing tool is that we can increase the speed to market for our customers product at a reasonable price. Design changes, proof of concepts and limited production runs can be performed quickly. We are actually producing production ready parts on our 3D printer, which pass all customer requirements. Another advantage is the ability to produce a physical model for sales or marketing purposes. The advancement of engineering materials with excellent mechanical and chemical characteristics has helped us enormously in areas of manufacturing and product design. We even have some stage tooling made from 3d printed components, which cuts tooling cost which we can pass on to the customer. Contact us at www.mmtech.us for further information.
