3T’s work with Hittech features in Machinery magazine

25 March 2015 ...

Machinery magazine has featured the work 3T has done with Hittech Group BV to design and build an ‘E-box’ using Metal Additive Manufacturing.  Reducing the number of production steps from 38 to just nine and lead time from 20 weeks to five, the resulting reduction in the cost of the component is more than 30%.  The article can be found in the online magazine (go to pages 27 and 28), and our full Case Study is here.
