3D Printing Services
3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process (unlike CNC machining, a subtractive manufacturing method) used to create components with complex geometries. At Jaco Machine Works, we use our state-of-the-art Markforged® 3D printer to develop high-quality workholding fixtures and gauges for our CNC machines, allowing us to bring your parts to market quickly, efficiently, and for a competitive price.
In-House 3D Printing Services for CNC Machining
Jaco Machine Works is an ISO9001:2015 and ASD9100 D certified manufacturer. Along with creating custom CNC-machined components that meet every specification or regulation, our expert machinist engineers will design, manufacture, and implement the custom 3D-printed CNC machining fixture needed to produce your part by utilizing our in-house equipment. Our team has the industry experience and specialized knowledge required to realize unique 3D-printed solutions through out-of-the-box thinking.
3D Printing for Project-Specific Fixtures & Gauges
Typically, CNC machine fixtures, gauges, and other workpieces are manufactured through CNC machining. This process requires costly materials and valuable machine time. By using an Eiger® Markforged 3D printer, we eliminate those restrictions. We rapidly iterate and develop ready-to-use custom fixtures that are impossible to make through traditional machining. These custom fixtures enhance our production to deliver creative workholdings for both machining and CMM inspection, improving efficiency and removing entire machining or inspection operations to save time and resources. We then pass these savings onto you throughout your production run and manufacturing process.
3D Printing Customer Success Story
A customer came to Jaco with a component in need of laser engraving. They were using an outside process house because of the fixtures available. We used our 3D printing capabilities to design a fixture, printed it on-site, and simplified the customer’s entire manufacturing process. We tested the ordered part, sent it to the customer, implemented revisions, and sent it again for approval. Our design engineers reduced the cost per part by more than half through streamlining the process and producing all necessary manufacturing components in-house through our 3D printing services.
3D-Printed Workpieces for CNC-Machined Components
Jaco Machine Works is a leader in high-quality manufacturing services. Our in-house 3D-printing capabilities make us a one-stop shop for any manufacturing run, as we can produce fixtures, workholding components, and gauges quickly and accurately to match the exact needs of your application and lower your overall costs.
We assure quality in all our manufacturing services and provide supply chain excellence and complete traceability for our production processes and secondary services. In addition to 3D printing, Jaco offers:
