"Maximizing production efficiency with 3D printed tools, jigs, and fixtures"

3D printed tooling delivers low cost, high speed flexibility in manufacturing

Volkswagen Autoeuropa faced a problem common to most mass producers of consumer goods: tooling, jigs and fixtures represented a large investment that was expensive to build, costly and time consuming to manage. By using Ultimaker 3D printers, Volkswagen Autoeuropa can now test solutions in house and purchasing costs were reduced by 91% when compared to working with external suppliers and implementation time was cut by 95%. Ergonomics and quality were also improved and the systems is also useful for prototypes, gauges and spare parts to support manufacturing processes. In this white paper, you will learn:

  • How 3D printing reduces assembly tooling development time
  • Where 3D printing improves ergonomics in manufacturing applications
  • Major cost savings possible with 3D printed tooling
  • How 3D printing also solves prototyping and spare parts issues

Download the white paper to learn how Volkswagen Autoeuropa saved $375,000 in 2017.
