A recent customer had a need for threaded inserts in the parts we printed for them. The process we used is called “heat staking” where the insert is heated and pressed into the holes. It really worked well and the customer was happy with them.
White Paper: The Economics of 3D Printing 3D printing is advancing into the realm of production, both in terms of work-holding to assist in machining operations and custom end-use parts. While the value of a printer may not seem apparent at first, executing the calculations will tell a different story. In production and manufacturing, productivity…Details
