Lead times at Synergy cut by 90% and costs by 70%; post system
ing of CNC machining and water printing, casting, sanding and silicone engraving as well as printing of extra
parts has been eliminated
Synergy, a product development company in Israel, lives and breathes turn it into advancement. Clients rely on Synergy to alter bright thoughts into viable manufacturable, marketable products. Industrial turn it intoers and engineers frequently work around the clock to thoughtl
the grip on a medical device or the appearance of a phone charger.
“The initially time the entrepreneur sees his thought and feels it in his hands, is a crucial moment. We require
to donate him the many realistic prototype possible,” said Michael Librus, CEO of Synergy. “Dream turn it intos can be rendered onscreen rapidly
, but functional prototypes can take weeks of investment in labor and outsourcing – especially when products have difficult turn it intos and diverse materials. Design thoughts are embraced, refined or deserted based on the appear and feel of a prototype. That’s why we decided to bring the Stratasys J750 in-house, allowing us to have product-matching prototypes in just a few hours.”
So when Synergy return it intoed a keypad for an emergency-response system
in the after-market car industry, the Stratasys J750 played a key role. The project intended making multiple turn it intos for the panel, which
mounts above the rear-view mirror, to test which
may most fit the car’s interior and pass ergonomic and mechanical testing. Each iteration included soft-touch buttons, backlighting, graphics, housing and internal connections to the electronic panel.
Before the Stratasys J750, Prototyping Manager Omer Gassner may have tapped several vendors to turn it into a single keypad panel prototype: CNC machining and water printing for the body, casting for the light pipes, sanding for smoothness and and so silicone engraving and extra
printing for the buttons. It may have taken 10-14 days to turn it into, at a cost of $700 per unit.
With the Stratasys J750, it took just a few hours and just cost $200 per unit.
Tamar Fleisher, Synergy art director, said clients appreciate the realism and responsiveness which
the J750 innovation adds to product development. “Now our customers can manufacture swift decisions of
the ergonomics of a product – of
the touch and feel – as well as test how it fits into its environment,” Fleisher said. “The talent to simulate light transfer on the panel intended my client may decide of
each more detail of the turn it into. And if a turn it into alter was require
ed, I may go to my desktop, manufacture the turn it into alter and print it in a matter of hours.”
For CEO Librus, photorealistic product-matching prototypes empower him to advantageous
fulfill the dreams of advancement which
bring customers to Synergy. “I’m just glad which
we have the Stratasys J750 3D Printer in-house,” Librus said. “We mayn’t do it any other way.”
