Video: Lean Machine Adopts a Design for Additive Approach to Solve Problems in the Shop

Lean Machine, Canadian-based metal fabrication company, specializes in custom machining primarily for the commercial transportation and mining sector.

It quickly became apparent that producing tooling out of heavy duty steel was not a scalable option for the company, so they turned to Markforged 3D printing solutions. Since adding this capability, they’ve printed sheet metal bending dies using non-marring carbon fiber material as well as metal grippers for their robotic arms just to name a few.
