3D Systems’ ProJet® 660 the Ultimate Solution for Hankook Tire Concept Design
The design department at Hankook Tire uses a ProJet 660 3D printer by 3D Systems as a key part of its concept design process. 3D printing technology has helped the design team deliver better communication between departments, save on costs, and improve design data security.
As part of their commitment to provide top-notch tires, Hankook looks for the best ways to enable rapid development and testing of innovative tire designs while keeping those in-progress designs secret.
With this in mind, the company invested in a 3D Systems ProJet® 660, a 3D printer that uses ColorJet technology (CJP) to create perfect full-color models that can be assessed for form and function.
Revolutionizing Facial Reconstruction Using 3D Printing and 3D Haptic Design
– Geomagic Freeform enables rapid iteration of implant design and surgical planning.
– 3D Systems’ ProJet, SLA and MultiJet 3D printing technology used for prototypes, surgical practices and surgical guides.
“This is groundbreaking work,” said Adrian Sugar, Consultant Cleft and Maxillofacial Surgeon at Morriston Hospital. “The combination of being able to use the patient’s own data from CT scans, being able to ‘feel’ bone fragments in the virtual world, model implants, and manufacture custom-designed devices and implants is changing the way we approach surgery and is significantly reducing surgery times.”
3D Systems’ ProJet® 3500 HD 3D Printer Saves Citizen Watch Time and Money
“With the high-precision 3D printed mock-ups of our wristwatch designs, we improved quality and saved three times the installation costs of our ProJet 3500 HD within six months.” — Mr. Naito, Product Development, Citizen Watch
Citizen ended up using its ProJet for more than prototyping, however. “Since the VisiJet material can be dyed or painted, we can quickly and easily evaluate mock-ups that have the look of a finished product,” said Mr. Naito of Citizen’s Technical Development Division. “We saved three times the installation cost of our ProJet within six months, and it has helped us spot problems with physical models that we couldn’t see with CAD alone. We can now fine-tune and improve products before following through with the final mock-up, which has led to improved quality and valuable reductions in time and cost.”
