3D printers have always had the power to improve supply chain management dramatically. After all, they allow companies to take rapid prototyping into their own hands. However, the technology hadn’t caught up with that potential until Nexa3D developed our ultra-fast printers, capable of printing in a wide range of materials. Our clients experience up to 20X productivity gains thanks to our game-changing technology, and your business can, too. Here, learn more about the value of speed when it comes to additive manufacturing.
Take Your Supply Chain Management In-House
Nexa3D’s lightning-fast systems allow you to do more yourself, so you don’t need to turn to outside sources as frequently when working on a new project.
Consider the NexaX 2.0 3D Print Model software, for instance. It’s so user-friendly that it’s now easier than ever to develop optimized renderings of your prototypes so you can print them yourself. With helpful features like accurate part print-times, and a resin consumption estimator, you’re able to account for more variables, so you can get great results on your own schedule while conserving materials.
Of course, the magic happens when the printing starts. Because our printers are so fast, you’re able to complete prototypes in a fraction of the time it takes to outsource the job to an injection molding business. Best of all, you can start testing your products on the spot, and if adjustments are needed, you can make them on your own, eliminating the middlemen.
As you can see, taking your supply chain management in-house is a great way to speed up your overall turnaround times.
Achieve a Circular Economy
In addition to speeding up production, internalizing your supply chain management is a great way to achieve a circular economy – that is, a production system free of wasted resources. In a true circular economy, your business handles everything it can in-house, so you don’t need to spend time and money bringing others into the fold project by project – not to mention wasting materials. A few benefits of a circular economy include:
- Taking control of every aspect of your production cycle
- Making the most of your resources
- Faster turnaround times
- Increased flexibility to make revisions
These are just a few of the ways Nexa3D’s speed can improve your supply chain management. If you’re tired of working with third parties to produce your prototypes, see for yourself how we can help.
