Thanks to the many opportunities that technology is making available, we decided to invest in the purchase of a STRATASYS F123 3D printer. Thanks to this machine, in addition to producing prototypes that can support design development, we are testing the possibility of making equipment to facilitate and improve our production capacity. The versatility of the materials and the ease of replacing them combined with a self-calibration system that guarantees reliable and accurate results, allows us to expand our possibility of manufacturing welding templates and dies, blades and punches for bending, and tools that are used by our operators and meet all the ergonomic requirements. In the future, the endless possibilities offered by the 3D printer could open up the way for new scenarios and experiments.
