MECHATRONIC LEVERAGES HP’S 3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD BETTER PARTS AT A LOWER COST
Customer at a glance
Mechatronic S.r.l. is an industrial automation company based in Italy that provides customized machines for industrial painting plants. With more than 20 years of experience in multiple markets, Mechatronic specializes in innovative applications with a focus on adapting products to customers’ requests.
Mechatronic produces the world’s only industrial painting machine that automatically sieves the painting powder and cleans the basket in which the powder is stored. The part must be very resistant to oscillations; must be able to absorb vibrations without transmitting them to the basket and, therefore, to the whole machine; and must feature plain shapes to facilitate the cleaning process (removal of painting powder) and reduce downtime of the machine. Previously, the part was made from plastic, which was not only expensive, but the material also made the part prone to failure.
In another instance, the flange that surrounds Mechatronic’s touchscreen control panel was originally manufactured using CNC Machining, then modified by hand and assembled with screws. Over time, Mechatronic’s customers became dissatisfied with the control panel’s appearance.
