Not familiar with 3D printing? Sure, that’s not a problem says Josh Tucker.
Josh freely admits that he knew nothing about additive manufacturing before he was shown how to print industrial fixtures that are now essential to the operation of his company.
Over the course of more than 40 years, Tucker Induction Systems of Michigan has delivered induction coils, bus bars, forging coils, quenches, and other related products. All with the help of 3D printed fixtures.
When Tucker needed assistance with a particularly difficult piece of Bridgeport work, requiring more than 200 loops and hundreds of setups, he turned to Markforged for assistance. By utilising a Markforged Mark Two and Markforged University, a user-friendly certification course that expedites the process of gaining an understanding of The Digital Forge technology, Josh was able to successfully print working fixtures that cut machining time in half.
I’m a machinist, not an engineer. I rely on it constantly. says Josh.
