3D Printing: the right technology for intrion
The lower the weight of a robot gripper or claw, the shorter the cycle time. That is why intrion chose to use 3D printing to produce durable lightweight parts for high-speed robots. intrion appreciated the freedom of design 3D printing offers, making it easier to design parts with a higher level of complexity and functionality than is possible with traditional techniques. And thanks to this technology, channels for wires, cables and air can easily be integrated into the design without driving up the costs. Plus, 3D printing makes it possible to design, test and deliver parts such as new grippers in less than two weeks. 3dprintbarometer.com
