KSE Process Technology (Netherlands) - At the end of 2016, KSE started using 3D printed parts for its ALFRA dosing and weighing systems. At first this was chosen because it was the quickest solution. “The designs and drawings were ready and the delivery time of the parts was simply the shortest when printed in 3D”, says Michiel Willemse – Manager Mechatronics Development. “In addition to that, the costs for the 3D parts are competitive compared to the conventional ways of producing”.
This is not the only benefit for KSE. “We supply various machines, each with its unique features. This means one and the same part can differ per machine. By using 3D printing, we can produce very flexible. This allows us to deploy developments much better and faster in a shorter time”, Willemse adds enthusiastically.
KSE sees a lot of future opportunities for 3D printing. With a brand new assembly hall and many product innovations it continues to invest in the future to meet customer requirements
