Seco Tools is using additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing to create products that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to manufacture. The advantages include shorter lead times, improved tool life, and increased sustainability.
The development and manufacture of prototypes for metal-cutting machining by means of AM is becoming increasingly commonplace in the operations of Seco Tools. One of the main strengths of this manufacturing method is the possibility of making specialized customer-specific tools that are difficult to achieve through conventional manufacturing.
