As a 3D printing company collaborating with other manufacturers in Canada and beyond, we have an important responsibility towards the environment around us, as well as to the greater community we live in. At Tempus 3D we're helping move towards a sustainable future with our environmental policies and commitment to long-term sustainability.
Our environmental management system allows us to understand, manage and minimize our ecological footprint. This system is focused on the following principles:
Reducing wastage of raw materials by minimizing rejected parts and re-using unused material where possible.
Minimizing the use of harmful substances.
Reducing carbon footprint by working and meeting remotely when possible.
Minimizing garbage through recycling and proper waste disposal.
Efficient energy use.
Intrinsically, 3D printing generates less waste and greenhouse gases than traditional manufacturing technologies, without compromising quality.
At Tempus, we take this further by investing in equipment that has minimal material waste even compared to other 3D printing technologies, such as the HP Multi Jet Fusion 5200 which has industry-leading material re-usability, and have operator training and quality control processes that minimizes the chance of parts rejected due to being out of specification.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
The recent economic trends and supply chain issues have fast-tracked the shift to local manufacturing, including greater adoption of 3D printing technology.
By manufacturing locally, the carbon emissions are reduced by limiting the transportation of materials and products across the country and around the world. An additional benefit is the ability to support local businesses.
Tempus 3D primarily uses HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, which has industry-leading powder re-usability and a lower carbon footprint than injection molding or comparable 3D printing technologies.
