FDM for Jigs and Fixtures – Save Time, Money


Forward-thinking manufacturers, engineers and designers are adopting Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) as a fast and accurate method of producing jigs and fixtures. By using FDM, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality.

In this application brief, we explore how the Oreck Corporation realized immediate savings in cost, production time and inspection time by implementing FDM for its fixtures.
