Additive manufacturing is transforming the way things are designed, made and delivered.
With additive manufacturing, companies can be proactive and respond to customer requirements with speed. From prototyping, distributed manufacturing, on-demand production, and accelerated time-to-market – additive manufacturing has revolutionized the product lifecycle.
Along with getting products in customer hands faster, additive manufacturing has eliminated dependencies on the tooling and fixtures that are part of traditional manufacturing models. The power of additive manufacturing for design, test, production, and delivery is unlocked when companies can reduce their BOM costs and deliver lighter and more cost-effective parts.
Rely on Jabil to be your trusted partner and leader in your transition to and adoption of additive manufacturing.
With distributed manufacturing companies can reduce their manufacturing workloads and shift manufacturing to the most ideal geographical locations. This means that customer demands can be realized faster, and companies can deliver products and solutions with speed, agility and reduced overhead.
Designing for this process empowers engineers to create more intricate, parametric and generative shapes in production parts, while reducing weight and material consumption.
Additive Manufacturing gives companies key advantages and benefits including:
With Jabil’s Materials, Processes and Machines (MPM) solution, we deliver full-scale production parts using our trusted and proven end-to-end solution. With MPM, we start with the right materials, apply manufacturing rigor, and leverage our additive manufacturing capabilities to manufacture these parts.
Additive Manufacturing: It’s All About the Numbers May 21, 2018 There has been a dramatic shift in additive manufacturing, moving break-even points from hundreds (or low thousands) of units to tens of thousands of units. It is now practical to produce parts at 20,000 to 40,000 units at/or below costs attributed to traditional manufacturing processes. /Read More
