ERIKS offers technical components and related services to all sections of industry. And by adding 3D printing technology to its workflow, ERIKS is able to provide its customers with a service that holds the potential to shake up industries around the globe.
The growing need for developing complex and high-quality components while keeping the manufacturing costs low is a primary factor driving the demand for the 3D printing solutions in the automotive sector.
"It's so rare that we get to show some of the capabilities we have, especially one that has gone through finish machining, says Scott Woida, President ADDere, "I think it gives a new perspective to what is possible with the technology."
While 3D printing is already used extensively in the healthcare industry, as technology advances and becomes more refined, we are likely to see amazing results.
Traditional CNC business models and organisations are currently under threat. The COVID-19 outbreak has made it clear just how vulnerable the complex, global manufacturing supply chains are.
There is no doubt that 3D Printing is shaping our societies. Its future is evolving very fast and, although its impact on different sectors is still to be defined, many industries are leveraging 3D Printing technologies for their goals.

As there are more and more success stories associated with the use of AM as a production technology, scrutiny on the process is becoming increasingly forensic in nature.
Shortages of Ventilators and PPE has become a worldwide problem. Many of our manufacturing partners and other companies are stepping up to help with some innovative solutions. Here are just a few of the efforts being reported to us.
For a growing number of applications, 3D printing for batch production offers clear economic and added-value advantages- acting as a spur to innovation and enabling the production of end-use products impossible or uneconomical to produce with the use of alternative methods.
In applications where overall tolerances are measured in microns, there are various ways that micro molders mitigate the risks associated with each step of the design-to-manufacturing cycle.
3D bioprinting offers opportunities such as testing treatment for diseases using artificially affected tissues, and through using bioink, it's much easier to solve problems on a patient-specific level, promoting simpler operations.

Additive & 3D Printing - Featured Product
Xcentric plastic injection molding services focus on rapid delivery of prototype and low-volume production components. Our production processes are streamlined such that we typically deliver first articles in less than 15 business days, and for simple expedited projects in as little as five days. At the other end of the spectrum, we frequently produce components for customers needing a few hundred thousand components as a bridge to higher productivity molds. Over time, we have earned a reputation for being able to handle highly complex projects, overmolding, custom insert molding, and other complicated projects much faster than with traditional tooling, often helping our clients get to market weeks, if not months earlier. At Xcentric, every mold is designed and fabricated and all production is run in one of our two Michigan-based facilities.
