Wilson Tool Using Carbon Technology to 3D-Print Oil Reservoirs for QuickTap Tapping Tool

Published by , November 9, 2018 2:45 pm

(3DPrintingMedia) Wilson Tool International turned to Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis technology to 3D print a line of oil reservoirs for its QuickTap tapping tool. The additive manufacturing technology enabled the company to bring its cost savings up to 60% and reduce its lead times by up to 50%.
Prior to using 3D printing for this specific application, Wilson Tool says it was facing difficulties in keeping up with demand for QuickTap tapping tool solutions for punch presses. The main challenges it faced were caused by long lead times and the high cost of fabricating metal oil reservoirs for the system.
