Ultimaker Case Study: A digital warehouse for on-demand manufacturing
Schubert, a global market leader in top-loading packaging machines has begun using 3D printing technology to enhance their solutions even further. Using 3D printing technology gives Schubert more freedom in the designs it creates – and much higher degrees of flexibility than with those created using traditional methods of manufacturing. For instance, a tool which once consisted of more than 200 parts can be created in a single print, reducing weight and assembly time. 3D printing also allows Schubert to iterate on parts much faster. Compared to traditional production methods, lead times per iteration have been reduced from weeks to hours, resulting in enormous cost savings.
