Build a Fleet

Studio Fleet™ is a custom-configurable solution for in-house metal 3D printing, supporting a range of low to mid-volume production applications. It leverages Studio System+ technology—including stackable shelving for batch processing—for the rapid production of complex metal parts. Built to scale, Studio Fleet can be configured to deliver 5x the throughput of the original three-part system for only twice the capital investment.

Scale throughput

Studio Fleet makes it easy for manufacturers to scale production for low to mid-volume runs—without the prohibitive costs associated with custom tooling or dedicated production facilities.

Common Scenarios

  • 01. Low volume production of custom parts
  • 02. Aftermarket or replacement parts
  • 03. Pilot runs prior to mass production
Application Example

Extruder nozzle

Used to mix two dense ceramic slurries, the nozzle directs flow and defines the shape of extrusion. The application requires a complex loft design and relatively low quantity. Given the strength, stiffness, and thermal resistance requirements, the extruder nozzle must be made of metal.

In-house metal 3D printing is up to four times faster and 90% cheaper than CNC machining or selective laser melting (SLM). And instead of extrusion honing, parts are easily sanded in the green state to achieve critical surface finish on the nozzle interior.

Flexures

Often, flexures require comprehensive, multi-step manufacturing processes—including wire EDM, water jet, brazing, etc.—to achieve the desired geometry. The ability to iterate quickly and perform extensive testing is critical to ensuring part performance.

In-house metal 3D printing allows for the creation of complex geometries without impact on cost or time, as well as rapid iteration and testing at quantities needed for effective validation.

Lathe gear

The custom gear is designed for a vintage lathe that is no longer in production. Due to frequent use and high loads, the part is susceptible to wear. To machine the gear at volume via broaching or hobbing is prohibitively costly and time-consuming, resulting in longer downtime until the replacement gear is available.

In order to meet strength and stiffness requirements, the lathe gear must be made of metal. In-house metal 3D printing with a custom hardware configuration expedites the production of replacement gears at a significant reduction in cost-per-part.
