Additive Manufacturing

With additive manufacturing or laser-sintering, components with the highest material requirements can be manufactured. Compared to traditional ablative manufacturing processes such as cutting, turning, drilling or milling, additive manufacturing is determined by the design. Physical or chemical hardening or melting processes take place during assembly. Typical materials for additive manufacturing are plastics, synthetic resins, ceramics and metals. Although these are often forming processes, a concrete product does not require any special tools which have stored the respective geometry of the workpiece, such as casting moulds.

 

The revolutionary “OTie”

For a world novelty and revolutionary way of wearing the “old familiar bow tie”, FashTec has developed an innovative and patented solution with the so-called “OTie”. The additive manufacturing of the “OTie” was a special challenge. It is the details that make this product a highlight. The manufacturing strategy had to be adapted to the cost target. A combination of additive and subtractive manufacturing enabled the necessary time savings in reworking. The high-gloss polishing played an important role and required great craftsmanship as well as the greatest care on the part of the employee. Only in this way can the end user and customer wear and present his extraordinary fashion accessory in a revolutionary way with much joy and pride.

advantages

Compared to the injection moulding process, additive manufacturing has the advantage that the time-consuming production of moulds and tool changes are no longer necessary. This process has the advantage over all machining processes that the additional machining step after the prototypes is no longer necessary. In most cases, the process is more energy-efficient, especially if the material is produced only once in the required size and mass. As with other automated processes, post-processing is required depending on the application.
