The use of 3D printing in the manufacturing and design industry has seen an exceptional level of growth over the past several years. This is because of the rapid advancements in 3D printing processes and materials, resulting in the ability to cost-effectively manufacture end-use parts that meet or exceed the quality of parts produced by other manufacturing methods.
3D printing simplifies manufacturing services, allowing for a simple three step approach; design, print, install. In contrast, traditional manufacturing process, such as injection molding or CNC machining, require multiple steps to create a product or part, and are limited in their ability to manufacture parts with complex geometries. Because of these limitations traditional manufacturing processes can be costly, inefficient, and time-consuming, especially for prototyping or short-run manufacturing.
The use of industrial 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) has proven to be an excellent complement to traditional manufacturing, with unique benefits and cost savings being realized by an increasing number of designers and manufacturers in Canada and across the world. The additive manufacturing process of 3D printing allows designers the ability to efficiently deliver an accurate and effective product using a sustainable process that mitigates risks, allows for creativity and freedom in design, and provides an opportunity for truly customizable product manufacturing.
While industrial 3D printing services in Canada are still a small sector of the market, it is becoming increasingly accessible and has proven itself as a viable and effective manufacturing approach. Tempus 3D helps fill the manufacturing gap in Canada with advanced 3D printing technology specifically designed for small-to-medium run manufacturing of end-use parts. Our specialty is HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing which is specifically designed to manufacture affordable, high-quality end-use plastic parts.
