Case Study - How Kawasaki Optimized Production with 3D Printed Tooling

In Kawasaki Motors Corp.’s 2.1 million square-foot facility in Lincoln, Nebraska that employs over 2,400 plant workers, 75 engineers have been given a BigRep large-format 3D printer to find innovative solutions to their unique manufacturing challenges.

By applying additive solutions to roadblocks in their advanced manufacturing of off-road vehicle, light railcar and aerospace products Kawasaki has realized some astounding cost and time savings.

Learn how Kawasaki optimized automotive and aerospace production processes to save 85% of estimated outsourcing costs by bringing in BigRep’s large-format additive manufacturing systems. And, how efficient workflow and logistical integration helped earn back their investment in just 6 months.

Read this large-format additive use case to find out:
  • How thermoplastics hold up to metal as end tooling for automated equipment
  • How on-demand solutions can quickly solve disastrous bottlenecks
  • Where industrial giants apply their AM technology for added value
  • Why detailed logistics are important to get the most out of your AM system

BigRep develops the world’s largest serial production 3D printers and the preferred choice of leading companies in the industrial, automotive and aerospace sectors, creating the industry benchmark for large-format additive manufacturing.
