A tool for unscrewing flasks and caps of home water filters
Ecosoft designs and manufactures water treatment equipment for domestic, commercial, and industrial use.
To test the design and performance of its products before casting, the company needed a set of parts for prototyping, i.e., mandrels for unscrewing flasks and caps of home water filters. We made six parts with a total weight of 460 g.
While the problem could have been solved mechanically, creating the parts would be prohibitively expensive. Besides, the client already tried printing them using a conventional 3D printer, but the quality was poor.
Ecosoft’s team turned to Infomir 3D Printing for help getting a set of parts printed on the Hewlett Packard Jet Fusion 5210 industrial 3D printing line. The printer uses HP PA 12 polyamide as a printing material, enabling us to make durable, lightweight items that are moisture, UV radiation, and chemical resistant.
We printed and delivered a set of parts to the client within five business days. The items fully met the terms of reference. Thanks to Infomir 3D Printing, the client received high-quality components fast and at an affordable price.
