3D printing offers great benefits for industries wanting to grow performance, increase competitiveness and offer their customers technologically advanced, cost-effective and customised products, as they work to increase efficiency and connectivity within the framework of the Industry 4.0 paradigm.
This type of tool makes it possible to quickly develop prototypes on which performance testing can be done directly in the laboratory. Data from these tests are then used to find solutions to optimise all production phases and improve the entire production chain.
Bonfiglioli Engineering uses 3D printing in the model development phase to ensure we offer innovative and high-performance machines to the market. It also enables us to respond quickly to customers’ needs for customised integrity testing solutions for products having special characteristics. We benefit by using 3D printing to shorten our response time to customer requests while providing safe, cost-effective and optimised solutions without having to depend on third-party products or intervention. 3D printing also guarantees exceptional accuracy and reliability.
3D printing, also known by the acronym “AM” (Additive Manufacturing), creates objects based on three-dimensional computer models. The printer uses these models as the starting point from which to produce the desired object by applying successive layers of plastic very quickly. In this way, 3D printing significantly reduces the time required for prototyping. Its great versatility makes it especially useful for all highly industrial sectors requiring customisation because it can produce any type of object in any production sector.
3D printing also significantly expands the range of design possibilities, freeing manufacturers from the need to build their prototypes using only standard available components. 3D printing lets users produce lightweight and versatile components with unusual shapes, and significantly cuts times and costs. These components can then be tested and analysed to find the best solutions for any company.
Bonfiglioli Engineering uses 3D printers and integrates them with the various tools we use during product design and development. Using 3D printers, our laboratories can:
We use 3D printing to produce components for machine development and testing, and improve our production processes while obtaining accurate and reliable results.
In this way, we can offer our customers optimised machinery that meets their every need, and significantly reduce our response times to customer requests. We can guarantee faster and more efficient service and help our customers develop innovative solutions.
