Merging parts and reducing costs

What we did?

Pre-process:

  • Check feasibility for Aluminum to Nylon conversion
  • CAD Design & Engineering

3D Printing:

  • Nylon (MJF PA12)

Post-process:

  • Black finish

Besides being cost and time saving, 3D printing allows you to create complex forms, like the internal flow channels of this part.

We reduced this industrial assembly consisting of three CNC milled aluminium parts (left) into one 3D printed part (right).

The result is a lighter nylon part benefiting of all the advantages of 3D printing, while fulfilling all the requirements when operating.
