At Crescent Industries 3D printed models have been used to speed up the molding process by using them for design review, quality inspection, product fixtures and end of arm tooling.
These 3D components provide beneficial uses at Crescent for the following reasons.
- Product Design Reviews helping to fix potential problems in the design phase and determine type of material that best fit the application as well as optimization for manufacturing.
- Provides an actual part to set up quality inspection parameters prior to production eliminating the delay during production for this process.
- Manufacture product fixtures and end of arm tooling before production, so there is no waiting for a production quality component to be manufactured before building the fixtures or end of arm tooling.
Crescent’s new Stratasys Eden 500V16 3D printer gives us the ability to produce ultra-fine details for parts with complex geometries, smooth surface finishes and thin walls. These components are produced using production grade thermoplastics so painting, gluing, sanding, drilling and bonding with other 3D printed parts can be completed just like any plastic component.
As well as, providing 3D components for our customers to use as prototypes, samples or even provide small production runs.
