Production downtime reduced from 3 months to 24 hours
Required time for replacement – during this time production
3 MONTHS Milled polyamide
24 HOURS PETG + CGF (plastic + composite carbon fiber)
Piston for forming yogurt post is needed for dairy brand production line. Usually such pistons are made from milled polyamide. Replacing destroyed part takes 3 months. During this time production line fully stops: the company doesn’t get enough sales volume and suffers losses.
The part printed on Anisoprint Composer 3D printer by anisoprinting technology has longer lifespan and reduces production line downtime from 3 months to 24 hours.
Anisoprinting is the technology of continuous composite fiber coextrusion. Thermoplastic polymers are reinforced with continuous fiber, consolidated and cured within a single-stage fully automated process, with no post-processing required. As a result, we get parts that are several times stronger, lighter and cheaper than traditional (metal, plastic).
