GT Incorporates the Dimension 3D Printer

Greene Tweed & Co Benelux BV : 04 September, 2006  (New Product)
In order to enhance the design and product development process for our customers, Greene, Tweed is incorporating 3D models built via stereolithography as a critical part of the design process. By utilizing a Dimension 3D Printer, customers can get an early view of prospective solutions before expensive tooling investments are made and/or components are manufactured.
In order to enhance the design and product development process for our customers, Greene, Tweed is incorporating 3D models built via stereolithography as a critical part of the design process. By utilizing a Dimension 3D Printer, customers can get an early view of prospective solutions before expensive tooling investments are made and/or components are manufactured.

With stereolithography, a layer manufacturing technology, layers formed by a polymer resin are shaped specifically to the CAD 3D model. This resin creates durable and functional models of the desired design layer by layer while the complete process allows for modifications to the CAD model. More importantly, this process facilitates stronger and earlier design collaboration between Greene, Tweed and its customers. The 3D printer lets Greene, Tweed's technical experts review and critique designs with customers, incorporating new ideas and addressing any design concerns of the customer. With desktop accessibility to the design, there is no longer a limitation on the amount of models and variations that can be produced and ultimately tested, assuring Greene, Tweed and its customers an outstanding final product.

'The capability to generate physical 'mock ups' directly from the CAD model has been immensely valuable for both Greene, Tweed and our customers during initial design stages,' stated Gary Appleby, Global Sales and Technical Director for Greene, Tweed's Aerospace business, 'The flexibility and overall speed of the process has enabled us to accelerate the design process and give our customers exactly what they want, taking the customer-engineer partnership to a whole new level of collaboration.'

Greene, Tweed is a leading global manufacturer of high-performance seals and engineered components. The company specializes in developing customized solutions for applications in aerospace, medical and biotechnology, fluid handling, industrial, oilfield and semiconductor industries. Greene, Tweed combines over a century of technical expertise and commercial knowledge to provide customers with engineered solutions for their applications. Greene, Tweed products are sold and distributed world wide.
