Case Study - ARCESSO DYNAMICS
INDUSTRY SEGMENT : Part Providers | Mold makers
Arcesso Dynamics is a medium-sized company (25 employees) with more than 10 years of history, committed to providing short and medium runs of polyurethane parts with high-quality finishing (painted parts, glossy finishes, etc.), mainly for general industries such as furniture, medical equipment, electronical devices, and more.
Arcesso Dynamics has a clear focus on innovation, continuously developing improved polyurethane formulations with unique properties, as well as processes.
As the manufacturing of big parts is the optimal work point for RIM technology, Arcesso Dynamics mainly deals with this type of design; they see a lack of competitiveness of the technology against Injection Molding when it comes to medium and occasionally short series of small- or medium-sized parts.
One of their main concerns in their daily business is that many times they are forced to reject incoming projects consisting of little parts of short batches because of the high costs of the RIM molds.
Finding a way to address these series of little parts with a lower initial but not less important—advantage of using HP MJF RIM molds is time to capital expenditure would increase their market significantly. A second— months of labor. Being able to deliver polyurethane final parts in days market. Manufacturing of a machined mold typically takes weeks to increases chances of deal-closing exponentially.
