July 28, 2014
Precision CNC machining provider James Tool Machine & Engineering, Inc. now offers customers fused deposition modeling (FDM) using ABS plastic in-house, direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), and PolyJet technologies through their additive manufacturing service partners.

Morganton, NC - Precision CNC machining provider James Tool Machine & Engineering, Inc. now offers customers fused deposition modeling (FDM) using ABS plastic in-house, direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), and PolyJet technologies through their additive manufacturing service partners.

"In order to stay on the cutting edge of manufacturing technology and continue to be competitive, it was a must for James Tool to invest in additive technology and offer these additional services to our customers," states Jeff Toner, president of James Tool. With the release of the "THINK" campaign, the company is challenging their customers to think outside the box when it comes to manufacturing methods and what is and isn't possible when designing parts and components. Toner adds, "We want our customers to really embrace additive manufacturing and see the benefits of this game-changing technology. It is important for our customers to work with us to ensure the right technology and materials are being used when considering additive technology."

Most recently, additive manufacturing has brought major attention to the engineering and manufacturing industries, with several large corporations publicizing their utilization of the technology for manufacturing end-use production parts.

Currently, additive manufacturing technology allows parts to be made using polymers, light metals, stainless steel, tool steel, and super alloys. There are several major benefits of additive manufacturing, including:

  • Freedom to design and innovate without incurring additional costs
  • Ease of design submission with digital processing
  • Less tooling or even no tooling required
  • Less material waste, creating lower costs and a more environmentally friendly process
  • Faster delivery times
