Lightweight parts made to last

The lighter the tool can be, the more room there is for the payload of the robot. In addition, the tools printed with high-performance polymers can be exposed to chemicals or radiation without the effects of corrosion.

With the designers' freedom that industrial 3D printing provides, tools can be optimized to work with even the most complex geometries. The customer can use the same robot for various cases just by changing the tool to match each process and project.

Reduce the lead time of the R&D project

Robot development projects can utilize high-performance polymer 3D printing in functional prototypes to gain a realistic view of the product's performance. In addition, it provides valuable feedback that can be used in the revisioning of the parts effectively.

Due to the safe and intuitive use of the miniFactory Ultra 3D printer, anyone from the R&D team can be the operator and produce parts without the internal bureaucracy of the company. Thus, robotics professionals can finally have the freedom to achieve their designs in-house and without material waste.
