Total Cost of Ownership – Unwrapping the Hidden Costs of Manufacturing

When thinking about costs of a part, many engineers and purchasers tend to only have one thing in mind: production costs. Like this, new technologies such as 3D printing/AM are often seen as expensive. However, production costs are just the tip of the iceberg.

Exploring Manifold Design

Manifolds are complex parts that require several levels of expertise to optimize. At Inkbit, we are optimizing the manufacturing of manifolds that finally unlock the geometric freedom of additive manufacturing.

The Way to Combine Metal and Plastic: Insert Molding

IM is a popular manufacturing process because it is fast and efficient. It also allows for a high degree of precision, meaning that products made using insert molding are typical of high quality.

The Role of Wet Blasting in the Post-processing of AM Parts

Many companies are working on and researching new bespoke AM post-processes, sometimes with impressive results, but usually restricted in usefulness to particular materials or geometries, and almost all being highly priced and over-engineered.

Metal 3D Printing Promotes Revolution in Valve Design and Manufacturing

The emergence and mature applications of metal 3D printing technology, as well as intelligent software such as CFD and CAE, are driving and leading new changes in valve design and manufacturing.
