Fast prototypes for industrial enclosures
02 August 2021
There was a time when prototypes for bespoke industrial enclosures were expensive and took weeks to produce. Thanks to advances in 3D printing, today’s prototypes are not only faster and less expensive to develop, but the increased possibility of making design tweaks creates a better final product.
Chris Lloyd, Managing Director at Spelsberg UK, explains the advantages of 3D printing for industrial enclosure development.
For the development of new or bespoke industrial enclosures, 3D printing has significantly reduced prototype development time. For the OEM, the faster the time to make, test and approve a prototype, the faster the time to market and the quicker they can see a return on their investment. This is an ever-increasing trend, especially for industries where profitability is squeezed and the cost of labour and expertise is high. For some projects, urgency is critical, and a prototype might be needed in a matter of days. This is what 3D printing can provide...
