Expanding product portfolio with 3D printing options
Chase Plastics is pleased to announce a new supplier agreement with Jabil Engineered Materials. The formation of this new partnership offers customers a range of engineered materials for additive manufacturing designed to improve the performance, durability and tolerance of 3D printed production parts.
This addition fills a unique void that provides customers accelerated solutions by delivering unique and custom materials at scale – expediting both the production and validation process, ideal for product applications within industries that require stringent specifications and shorter lead times (healthcare, automotive, aerospace and industrial).
“By partnering with Jabil, we are broadening our portfolio with high quality materials for 3D printing to help our customers focus on driving productivity and reducing costs” said Chase Plastics’ Vice President, Adam Paulson. “The fact that Jabil chose Chase Plastics as a distributor because of our reputation of service, technical expertise and professionalism is an incredible opportunity in which we are both honored and excited.”
The added benefits of additive manufacturing materials
True to our commitment to be responsive to the needs of our customers, the expansion of our product line to include Jabil’s specialty filaments and powder materials for 3D printing — including prototypes, jigs, fixtures and tools (JFTs), production parts and more — provides exponential benefits to help bring products to market faster:
- Cost savings —as much as 80% — on tooling and fixtures
- Decreasing the time required for tooling operations from weeks to days
- Value-added attributes such as reinforced, flame retardant conductive, lubricated, Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD) and other characteristics to support mass production and personalization of manufacturing aids
