Smart Factory production service combines the power of advanced 3D printing hardware and software, high performing elastic and engineering resins, and automated manufacturing processes. Eliminating tooling and molds needed in traditional manufacturing, the LuxCreo Smart Factory takes digital 3D printing files to produce high or low volume, high-mix with low volume, customized, or just-in-time products. Manufacturing consistently from batch-to-batch and at high yield across many 3D printers, the Smart Factory is providing flexible options and accelerating production.

“Over the last year, many companies are experiencing significant disruptions in their manufacturing supply chains,” said Michael Strohecker, chief revenue officer, LuxCreo. “With LuxCreo Smart Factories and cloud-connected 3D printers, our customers around the world have greater flexibility in product designs, where they manufacture, and can more easily and rapidly move from prototyping and small batch production to high volume manufacturing.”
