Minneapolis, MN - April 10, 2017 - Boker’s now offers additive manufacturing to provide customers with three-dimensional prototypes. Using a Stratasys 3D printer, Boker’s creates quick prototyping of custom designs for 3D washer and stamping models.
“Once a customer’s CAD file has been received, we can provide a 3D-printed prototype, to help shorten the development cycle,” said Mark Kersey, V.P., Boker’s, Inc. “By quickly moving from concept through design and into production, our customers can test parts for accurate form, fit and function prior to producing the actual stamped part.”
Boker’s provides prototypes for a variety of new custom stampings, complex stampings or larger orders to ensure the final stamped part is exactly as expected. Customers review and test prototypes to verify parts are up to specification and make any necessary CAD file adjustments prior to production, avoiding unexpected surprises. Boker’s can produce prototype parts up to 12 x 10 x 10 inches with a minimum thickness of 0.03 inch. Prototypes are made from an ABS material and come in a variety of color options. Most 3D prototypes are shipped within 48 hours of receipt of approved CAD files.
When it comes to producing the final stamping or washer, Boker’s offers limitless customization options. With over 2,000 commonly specified and difficult-to-find material options, including low-carbon steel, spring steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper and nickel silver, in addition to non-metallic options such as ABS, Nylon, PTFE, Acetal, and NEMA-grade laminates, Boker’s is able to quickly turn quality products for many different customer needs.
