Stanley Infrastructure, a division of Stanley Black & Decker, was searching for a way to manufacture low volume, complex parts faster and more cost-efficiently.

Engineers redesigned an assembly for additive manufacturing using the Markforged’s Metal X 3D printer. Here are the results:

  • Part Count Reduction: 4 to 1
  • Weight Savings: 53%
  • Lead Time Reduction: 69%

According to a Stanley Infrastructure engineer, “it is very feasible to leverage the Metal X platform in additively manufacturing the discussed actuator housing with very minimal capital and time investment.”
