3DEO’s Surgical Jaw Part
Industry: Medical Device
This endoscopic surgical device manufacturer was struggling to launch innovative new products quickly with metal injection molding. Using MIM, time to market is 3+ years, design is limited and locked in by tooling, and up-front costs are very high.
With our patented metal 3D printing process, 3DEO unlocked new geometric freedom not possible with MIM. With fast iterations on new designs delivered in less than a week, the customer’s engineers optimized the design efficiently without extending the development timeline or changing expensive tooling. And with scalable printers, the team moved directly into production without the need to requalify a new process.
”3DEO is creating new possibilities for innovation and rapid time to market that solve some of our most pressing issues.
