The amount of 3D printing or additive manufactured material used within CompoTech has increased dramatically over the last few years. This has predominantly been used for tooling associated with our winding process. To cope with this demand increasing number of Prusa 3D printers have been purchased as well as the implementation of a management system.
As a result, our designers created our inhouse “Farm”. A bank of 3D printers to prioritise and produce the parts and a system to manage the demand. Engineers can also send the job for printing and monitor them remotely. Giving more time to their other tasks.
