Shop System™ applications span a variety of industries including manufacturing, tooling, automotive, consumer, electronics, and oil & gas.

clipper blade desktop metal sample print

Clipper Blade

17-4 PH


  • Specs

Size (mm)


Parts per build

36 x 35 x 3.5


684

Manufacturing this clipper blade would traditionally require expensive tooling for production via stamping or metal injection molding. Mass producing on the Shop System eliminates tooling costs and drastically reduces manufacturing lead time.

Parts per build

70 x 70 x 32


15

The Killacycle is an electrically-powered motorcycle built for drag racing. Using the Shop System, engineers were able to design for function rather than for the manufacturing method, allowing them to use a tapered design that would be difficult to manufacture via traditional methods.

Bulb Nozzle

17-4 PH


  • Specs
  • Description

Size (mm)


Parts per build

38 x 38 x 46


27

Traditional manufacturing of this part would require casting followed by extensive secondary machining on a 5 axis CNC. Because only a few hundred of this nozzle needed to be manufactured, it was a great fit for the Shop System.


Sensor Holder desktop metal sample print

Sensor Holder

17-4 PH


  • Specs
  • Description

Parts per build

37 x 23 x 18


186

The intricate geometry of this sensor holder make the part an ideal candidate for the Shop system. The part was printed with an extreme reduction in both manufacturing lead time and part cost.

Gear Shift Knob desktop metal sample print

15

On demand manufacturing of custom knobs is enabled with the Shop System - expanding design flexibility and avoiding warehousing costs. The short manufacturing lead times allows for many custom knobs to be produced with a variety of different designs.

Clutch Plate desktop metal sample print

Clutch Plate

17-4 PH
