One of the keys to running a successful business, any business, is to utilize state-of-the-art tools and technology to give your company a “leg-up” over your competition. CPS-Pumps uses the most advanced 3D printing technology to advance the performance of the existing product line and to rapidly prototype new models when the situation arises.
This technology allows CPS-Pumps the ability to manufacture patterns and tooling very quickly. In a matter of days, a newly printed core box or pattern can be manufactured and sent directly to the foundry for casting. This process usually takes six weeks or more to accomplish with normal pattern production techniques. By greatly reducing the tooling lead-time CPS-Pumps can greatly reduce the pump manufacturing lead-time the the client.
The 3D printer can allow a prototype impeller or casing to be designed, manufactured and tested in a fraction of the normal lead-time. If, after the first article testing is completed and there still needs to be performance tweaking or minor design changes, these too can be accomplished in a fraction of the time.
Another very cool use for the 3D printer is to actually print scale models of the product line that CPS-Pumps manufacturers. These models are actually printed to scale and used for training at trade shows and training seminars with prospective distributors or specifying engineers. These 3D printed marketing samples are light weight, show the features & benefits of the actual product line and are a fraction of the cost to manufacture. These models are often used for distributor training as they can be assembled & disassembled greatly enhancing the training experience.
If there is interest in purchasing one of these marketing samples please contact CPS-Pumps and more information can be provided. This article shows printed product from the SP split case product line, the XA end suction product line and the KTG vertical inline product line.
