Winter Equipment is now using 3-D printing to create custom product prototypes, as well as solve problems within the industry, the company reports.
Winter Equipment’s 3-D printing allows the company’s engineering department to make modifications on parts in a timely manner. Winter Equipment creates a 3-D version of the part and sends the “to-scale model” to the customer for approval. This allows the customer to be able to see, touch and interact with the product prototype.
Winter’s 3-D printer uses PLA resin and ABS resin to create the designs which are strong and cost effective for producing 3-D printed products.
“Our 3-D printer allows us to be cost effective and save time and labor,” said Kent Winter, founder and CEO of Winter Equipment. “What we can accomplish in 24 hours would take us up to four weeks if we didn’t have a 3-D printer.”
