Tuesday 8th December Webinar on Functional Fabrication: Idaho Steel supercharges their machine shop with SLS 3D printing

Idaho Steel has planned a webinar Tuesday 8th December 2015 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Functional Fabrication: Idaho Steel Supercharges Their Machine Shop with SLS 3D Printing.

Since 1918, Idaho Steel has manufactured, maintained and customized food processing equipment. Like most fabricators, they rely on CNC machining for many of their products’ components, and have recently added a ProX™ 500 Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printer into their production workflow as a means to create unique, project-specific parts more efficiently and effectively.

Attend the live webinar featuring Idaho Steel, as they share their experiences of customization and why 3D printing was the perfect fit and solution to help accelerate production times while delivering durable, complex and high quality production parts.

Learn how Idaho Steel:
Cut production time from 25 days to less than 4 days for one of their prime applications –  customized forming inserts and pistons for their Nex-Gem Former machine that forms potato products in different shapes

Reduced part costs by 10x by shifting some previously CNC-machined parts to 3D printed parts

Transformed, redesigned and 3D printed a sensor housing for a laser that detects the material level of a hopper or bin and relays it to the control system – yielding major improvements for the customer
