Why Register?

Large industrial equipment can break down and bring production to a halt. At the Formlabs 3D printing factory, we use smaller modular units of production to manage risk, increase schedule flexibility, and scale production more accurately to demand. This is the only way  to handle the demands of printing 15,000 sample parts every month.

In this webinar, we’re going behind the scenes of our 3D printing factory to show how we use a combination of production tracking solutions and modular production units to decrease cost per part by 70 percent while increasing production by five times in the past two years. Join us to learn more about our journey building this facility, our technology, and benefits we’ve realized with it.

What you will learn:

  • The 5 major advantages that modular production units have enabled in our manufacturing facility.
  • How Formlabs uses a production tracking solution to help optimize production of 15,000 sample parts a month.
  • 3 workflows where you can implement low cost additive manufacturing into your factory floor.
