Mój główny problem jest taki, że mam za dużo pomysłów. Cubic Inch wybiera najlepsze z nich, testuje i wdraża je na liniach produkcyjnych Unilogo. W dodatku zazwyczaj płacę za mniej niż się spodziewałem. Druk 3D i technologia HP Multi Jet Fusion to magia w formie najczystszej.

Get to know our process

Challeange

Our client required about 600 custom-designed housings to mount parking sensors on car bumpers. These housings needed to be designed from scratch, ensuring a perfect fit within the bumper’s recess.

Solution

Based on the sensor’s geometry, we designed a housing that enabled quick and easy installation of the sensor onto the bumper. The housings were produced using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, then smoothed through vibratory finishing, and finally, immersed in black dye for coloring.

After testing the parts and comparing prices and lead times with other technologies, the client swiftly decided to transition to regular just-in-time part orders—precise quantities delivered in accordance with the current demand.

Benefits for the Customer

As it became clear that the 3D-printed parts were performing excellently, further calculations for AM System were straight forward.
Comprehensive Support

We provided AM System support at every stage—from design to delivering parts within 3 business days.

Accelerated Process

We significantly shortened AM System's project execution time by up to 4 weeks compared to other suppliers.

Cost Reduction and Improved Cash Flow

We reduced part costs by approximately 32,500 PLN compared to injection molding and ensured improved financial flexibility through the just-in-time model.

Przyspieszenie procesu produkcji

Szybkie dostawy w czasie 3-5 dni roboczych zmniejszyły przestoje w produkcji i pozwoliły na sprawniejszą realizację zamówień.
