Rize’s minimal post-processing enables CONMED to deliver functional parts, including molds, for end-use products, in one day, with ink marking for part identification. 3D printing is used for researching ideas and iterating designs for nearly every product developed at CONMED. Traditional machined prototypes can take days or weeks vs. overnight delivery for a 3D printed part. This time savings realized by using 3D printing is significant considering the number of iterations per project and the number of active projects at any given time.
3D Printing can
- Cut part turnaround in half
- Provide superior surface quality and low-surface-energy enabling the customer to produce end-use silicon products
- Diversion of jobs from other manufacturing tools, optimizing each.
