Dynamic Feeding Aids - On-Demand Manufacture
A device is needed to ensure envelopes are kept parallel to Production printers when fed through. A design was developed that increased productivity 80%, however faced costs in production and assemble. Additive Manufacture was used to modify the design and following stages of development a monolithic design only possible to be manufactured through 3D printing achieved the same performance. Use of AM meant the part could be produced as needed, reducing reaction time to demand and costs from holding stock.
