A-dec saved $36,000 dollars with Plural Additive Manufacturing by bringing part production in-house through an industrial 3D printer from 3ntr. At the same time, the part used only 20% of machine time, and was available for new projects.
When asked about their experience, three Plural characteristics stood out: relational, capable, and quality. Plural service and its 3ntr industrial 3D printers set it apart from other solutions. A-dec’s requirements for a 3D printer included a bigger print bed to run over the weekend, flexibility to use open materials, and high quality printing.
After working with Plural to validate sample parts, the 3ntr A2 delivered +/- 0.003 inch (0.076 mm) tolerances at six critical points. No other printer could match that performance at the price.
