One may think that 3D printing has no role in mass manufacturing, but in fact it is increasingly important. 3D printing is being used to create complex jigs and fixtures used to optimize the mass manufacturing process. The choice of material is critical, and that’s why 3D printer manufacturers such as Essentium have launched a wide variety of engineering materials.

Jigs and fixtures are traditionally used but were traditionally made by hand or with conventional techniques. Since they are not part of the actual end-product, it’s possible to change them if someone has a better concept that could improve manufacturing operations. Because these objects are used to help make potentially millions of products, they are quite critical to the operation. Any mistake in a jig or fixture could result in vast numbers of incorrectly made products.
