The first look at what 3D printing can do in the agriculture field saw the use of this technology in the construction of systems integrations. Another example is given today with REFORM, a vehicle manufacturer of special vehicles for year-round use in mountain agriculture and municipal areas.
Given their continuous use under challenging conditions, these vehicles should be manufactured with a high level of specialist knowledge and experience. Growing product portfolios and variations require greater flexibility in shorter periods. In this vein, REFORM decided to explore additive manufacturing processes for product development.
By relying on Prirevo, an Austria-based provider of 3D solutions, REFORM benefited from the production of prototypes with simultaneous time and cost reduction. Parts that required the use of 3D printing for their production include complete interiors, trim parts, roofs, fenders and bonnets. It optimises fittings ergonomically, quickly and inexpensively. Larger pieces are glued, filled and painted.
Currently, REFORM owns two 3DGENCE F340 printers and one 3DGENCE ONE 3D printer. The company also uses Prirevo’s 3D printing services at peak times and benefits from its regional proximity. ‘Using additive manufacturing processes allows us to create excellent prototypes that save us both time and money. We have found an excellent and reliable partner in Prirevo for the implementation of our high standards,‘ says Dominik Haas, design engineer at REFORM.
REFORM thus benefits from Prirevo’s strict focus on quality, user benefits and on-site service.
