JIGS AND FIXTURES

3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures Unlock the Future of the Factory Floor

Building jigs and fixtures using additive manufacturing offers several advantages including time and cost savings for faster speed to part, as well as increased flexibility and agility in the design stages. Essentium’s unique High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) technology magnifies the power of additive manufacturing by enabling speed and strength, at scale, to meet the volume production needs that other 3D printers just cannot match.

WHY HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION?

Decrease Time-to-Part

Avoid lengthy lead times, and costly tool changes, and quickly iterate through designs using the end-use material, to land on the ideal final part.

Design for Complex Geometries

Manual fixturing, taping, and masking can cause bottlenecks and delays in production. Custom jigs and fixtures solve these challenges to save time and money.

Select Ideal Materials

Whether an application requires a material that is flexible, ESD-safe, or high-temperature or chemical resistant, Essentium HSE 3D Printing Printers allow users to utilize an open ecosystem of materials to use the best material for your application.
