Automation Devices Embraces 3D Printing

Automation Devices, Inc. is now utilizing 3D printing capabilities in an effort to reduce costs and save time.

Erie, PA, June 18, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Automation Devices, Inc. (ADI) a vibratory feeder manufacturer in Fairview, Pa, is utilizing 3D printing in an effort to reduce costs and production time for newly designed feeder bowls.

3D printing technology allows for constructing master patterns directly from Solidwords 3D CAD models. By using the fused deposition modeling method (FDM), ADI can take a 3D CAD model of a feeder bowl and the printer will create a precise replica of the casting created out of durable ABS plastic.

ADI Project Engineer Dallas Holmes is pleased with the outcome of implementing this emerging technology. “We have cut down our development and production time of our bowl castings by three to five weeks, depending on the complexity of the feeder,” says Holmes. “We no longer need to rely on a third party to create the master pattern, which often took weeks at a time. Now, once the design work is complete, we can produce our own feeder bowl patterns in a fraction of the time.”

Automation Devices Inc. produces a full line of vibratory feeders and components. They are located in Fairview, Pa. For more information on 3D printing capabilities, contact ADI at 814-474-5561 or view products at www.autodev.com.
