Before and After 3D Printing : Comparison
86% reduction in lead time
However, through the introduction of the Markforged Metal X, Nieka Systems found themselves printing these clips out of Inconel, using 3D printing instead of the CNC machine alternatives. Immediately, the company saw a great reduction of cost and lead times in getting these parts prepared and ready to be used. Alongside 2 composite 3D printers, Nieka Systems now uses their Metal X as a “market ready solution” which, as stated by Louis Croisetier, founder of the company, has completely eradicated the need for external machining.
