How 3D Printing Has Improved Our Productivity

How 3D Printing Has Improved Our Productivity

Shildon Manufacturing Company has invested in a new 3D printer to aid our engineering design projects. We strongly felt the investment in such a high-tech machine was well worth the cost and our instincts were 100% spot on. The investment in 3D printing has meant the time frame between the initial design process and production of the final product has been dramatically reduced. As a consequence of this streamlining, we are now able to deal with customers much more quickly, so order timescales have been dramatically reduced.
