Find out how to apply 3D printing in the different departments within the mechanical sector
The tooling department is responsible for designing and manufacturing tools and fixtures for the mass production of mechanical parts. These tools include moulds, dies, dies, dies, tooling and clamping devices.
Manufacture of specific tools
Reducing variable costs of tooling manufacturing
Achieving high quality standards
3D printing applications in the mechanical sector
Positioners and poka-yokes
Positioners are very commonly used objects and 3D printing is playing an increasing role in them. In industry they fulfil the same function as they do for the end consumer. They are simple supports to precisely fix an object that will be involved in some stage of production.
In the mechanical sector, 3D printing is used to create fixtures such as brackets, brackets, gears and other robotics components, which can be custom designed to fit the specific needs of the robot or the project at hand. In addition, 3D printing allows the creation of prototypes for design testing and verification prior to mass production.
3D printing can be used to produce a wide variety of end-use parts in the mechanical sector, such as machine parts, housings, brackets and other components. This technology offers many advantages in the creation of end-use parts, such as customisation, design flexibility, cost reduction and small quantity production.

It brings together all user requirements, resulting in a device that offers maximum freedom, reliability and connectivity. The inductive platform levelling with sensor ensures a perfect first layer and the integrated Air Manager keeps the print volume at an optimally regulated temperature. Exhaustion and fan support sensors will stop printing and alert you if you run out of filament or if a jam occurs causing flooding of the printhead.
Thought3D Drywise In-Line Filament Dryer
This filament dryer takes the guesswork out of 3D printing hygroscopic materials. It pre-treats your filament and brings it to the best printing conditions before 3D printing can begin. An in-line drying design ensures that long 3D prints are always printed with uniform material dried in the best printing conditions.
Polymaker Polybox Filament Drybox
3D filament storage box that allows you to store your materials in an optimal printing environment while printing with them. It features a thermo-hygrometer to monitor the filaments inside the box. Humidity is regulated by large desiccant bags that absorb moisture from the air inside the PolyBox™.
Success stories from the mechanical sector
ASE Optics is one of the companies that has recently opted for the incorporation of a 3D printer in order to simplify the manufacture of prototypes and adapters for different optical systems.
The project they proposed to us was the creation of tooling prototypes with 3D printing, in order to be able to carry out a more effective dimensional control of these parts, reducing production times and costs.
CIMEC3D – MECANITZATS ALBOSCH SL
To better detail the advantages of additive manufacturing, applied in the industrial sector, in this article we will talk about one of the latest success stories of INTECH3D, together with the company CIMEC3D - MECANITZATS ALBOSCH SL.
3D printing has revolutionised the world of industry and manufacturing, with improved technologies and innovative materials. Controlpack, thanks to 3D printing, has made great progress in its manufacturing methods, obtaining cost and time reductions.
SPEED SERVICE REPARATION
In this case, SPEED SERVICE REPARATION stands out for its great capacity to create and repair, in record time, the majority of vehicle parts using 3D scanning and printing technologies.
PARDO (Grupo PIKOLIN)
PARDO decided to have its own 3D printer in view of the good results it obtained. In this way, it can improve and speed up its manufacturing processes, personalise each part even more and commit to more sustainable manufacturing.
MARTISA COMPONENTS started to create some of its tools and final parts through 3D printing. At present they already have a 3D printer in their company, to improve manufacturing processes, reducing costs and manufacturing times.
PAUL HARTMANN IBERIA
Thanks to the speed and effectiveness of 3D printing, PAUL HARTMANN has been able to reduce the manufacturing times for spare parts for its production machinery by 98.8%.
