Under pressure: How 3D printing can help manufacturers beat the COVID-19 dilemma

From war and famine to natural disaster and economic crises, human history is littered with moments of extraordinary adversity.

What defines us as much as these moments themselves, however, is the way we recover from them – our determination to survive, triumph and embrace a new kind of normal where we can move forward with hope.

The COVID-19 crisis is a great turning point. Businesses in the UK and across the globe have been forced to take a step back and quickly re-think their strategies, evaluating how to both safeguard jobs and ensure economic prosperity in the months and years ahead.

Armed with advanced additive manufacturing technologies, engineers like those at SYS Systems are leading this recovery in a hard-hit production sector. 3D printing offers unparalleled versatility, empowering manufacturers to adapt to rapidly changing demands, meet tight schedules and work on multiple projects simultaneously.

Supporting businesses to bounce back

Today, to meet the fast-changing requirements of an incredibly volatile market, it is more important than ever for manufacturers to innovate and diversify.

3D printing has already played a pivotal role in providing frontline and key workers with crucial personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as enabling businesses already using the technology to rapidly shift their production lines to create entirely new parts in record time.

Just consider its power in maintaining on-site component availability at a time when supply chains remain so unreliable.

In line with the Government’s coronavirus Bounce Back Loan Scheme and Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), SYS Systems is committed to doing all it can to support manufacturers back to full health.

The company – a Stratasys UK platinum partner – specialises in supplying best-in-class additive manufacturing systems with rapid prototyping and production part capabilities, across all industries.

SYS Systems has announced a ‘buy now, pay nothing for 12 months’ scheme offering hard-pushed manufacturers an affordable way to access bespoke 3D-printing solutions, with unprecedented discounts across the full product range.

Why choose SYS Systems?

SYS Systems has been supplying the most advanced 3D-printing technology on the planet and working with innovative UK businesses for the past decade and a half.

With rapid production capabilities backed up by intelligent software, alongside a vast array of advanced material and colour options, our bespoke solutions are enabling the production of cost-effective and ever-more realistic models, manufacturing aids and end-use parts.

At the heart of the additive manufacturing revolution are production systems capable of building customised, repeatable and intricate structures with the same engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics used in traditional processes.

But there’s one big difference: by eliminating the expense and inhibitions associated with machining, 3D printing has made it possible to do it in an accessible, timely and economical way.

This direct digital manufacturing approach means engineers are free to create and evolve low-volume parts with organic shapes and intricate geometries. Inventories are now digital files at their fingertips.

Bespoke builds pioneered by Stratasys technology are delivering huge cost and efficiency savings for companies the world over by reducing scrap, saving on warehouse space and improving speed to market.

Furthermore, SYS Systems’s remote training courses will enhance users’ skills to ensure a business is getting the most from their 3D printer.

 

What are the benefits of 3D printing?

Speed and efficiency: replace expensive and slow traditional machining methods with technology that delivers top-quality models and components in a matter of hours, at the click of a button. Iterate quicker, slash design cycles and reduce lead times.

Ease of use: CAD files are seamlessly turned into models with GrabCAD, an intuitive software solution that allows for simplified preparing, scheduling, monitoring and reporting of print jobs.

Accuracy: world-leading Stratasys 3D printers deliver high-quality, reliable and repeatable prints time and time again, reducing waste and streamlining performance.

Material options: for ultra-realistic prototypes, robust manufacturing aids or superior end-use parts in a range of colours, Stratasys materials meet the toughest certification standards and succeed in every application.

Versatility: from flight-ready aerospace components to patient-specific surgical guides, 3D printing is delivering innovative solutions across every industry imaginable.
