Through the utilisation of their Markforged X7, which is able to print parts 1.4x stronger than traditional ABS, the team saw their lead times and costs reduce dramatically; without them having to sacrifice on the quality of their parts. Instead of having to produce $47,000 worth of parts in 1,200 hours, Saint-Gobain are now able to print those 400 parts in a fraction of the time and cost; saving approximately 90 days of lead time. For the future, Saint-Gobain looks to involve Markforged printers in more of their plants around America, seeing them as the solution to previous issues in lead times and cost.
