Volkswagen Success Story
Maximizing production efficiency with 3D printed tools, jigs, and fixtures
By using 3D printed tools, jigs, and fixtures, Volkswagen reduces cycle time operation, labor, and the need for reworking, while improving tool ergonomics. Furthermore, they achieve this at a tenth of the usual cost. The company estimates that they were able to save $525,000 in its first two years using Ultimaker 3D printers.
