Industrial Equipment Industry

TriMech helps designers and engineers to innovate with rapid prototyping in real space and time, then test and revise at will

Industrial Equipment Solutions

3D printing provides manufacturers with prototyping, advanced tooling and production applications. 3D printing services are often the difference between turning down potential business and cost-effectively delivering and serving a niche need.

Designers and engineers can skip expensive, time-intensive machining and gain the agility to make changes any time. 3D printing and scanning services allow you to obtain concept models, prototypes, tooling and end-use parts directly from your CAD data.

FDM 3D printing service is a great solution for low-volume tooling and durable end-use parts. FDM Technology works with production-grade high performance thermoplastics such as Nylon 12, Polycarbonate and ULTEM 9085.

PolyJet 3D printing service delivers ultra-detailed prototypes, molds and even production parts incorporating smooth rigid, transparent and flexible materials. Stratasys multi-material 3D printers produce life like models with a variety of material properties on a single build tray.

How TriMech Helps Industrial Equipment Engineers:

Get Your Products to Market Faster

Get to market faster than the competition with speedier design cycles. Go from design to prototyping in hours, not days. Blaze through product improvement with rapid prototype revisions.

Simplify Your Workflow

Get better results by removing steps and complexity from your workflow. By producing full-scale prototypes straight from CAD design, your design reviews go smoother with hands-on consumer insight that is more informed.

3D Print Jigs and Fixtures

With 3D printed tooling you can avoid high machining costs for custom tools or parts needed for individual repairs and restorations.

Industrial Equipment Industry Profile

Company owner Matt Hlavin decided to shift Thogus’ focus to small-volume molding and highly engineered materials using Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) systems

3D Printing is a Game Changer for Industrial Equipment Production

Moving to small-volume production positioned Thogus to compete with high-cost fabrication shops due to its new lean, nimble manufacturing process.

 

Advanced Manufacturing Features & Applications

Test and Identify Design Problems

In some cases using CAD models alone is not as effective at finding design problems as a 3D printed physical part – you can easily identify a component issue that may have been missed in the initial design stage.

 

Digital ABS injection molding

Expedite prototype tooling for testing

Create prototypes using the same processes and materials as your finished product.

At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can 3D print smooth, accurate Digital ABS injection molds, tough polycarbonate forming patterns or detailed casting patterns.

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer

Tough long-lasting parts

FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.

FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

Meet production demands

Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.

With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.

Gain new possibilities

TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.

Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
