The customer needed a stainless steel reflector holder for a 3D laser coordinate measuring system, with integrated pneumatic cleaning.


Based on concept design and cost analysis, Enmac chose 3D printing as the manufacturing method. The functionality of the part improved with the reduced complexity and the manufacturing cost decreased by more than 80%. The number of parts to be manufactured decreased.


3D printing decreased the manufacturing cost by more than 80% and the functionality of the part improved thanks to more optimum air supply. The small size (mass -77%) was an advantage in the installation.
