We have recently invested in a 3D printer to support our pattern making. With the addition of a 3D printer Clements can seamlessly integrate additive manufacture to the company.
This complements what the team at Clements can already achieve which is moulding/ casting, machining, and design. The new printer gives the team a Clements full control over what they produce and allows the quality to be monitored throughout the whole manufacturing process.
By printing the patterns using the new technology it gives more freedom and flexibility compared with other methods whilst also allowing the patterns to be used many times. This makes the process more cost efficient. In addition, patterns can be made almost instantaneously and different parts for customers can be made more easily.
