Repair Lugs - 3D Printed Material
Plastfix is in the process of developing its own unique range of repair lugs using an advanced material sourced from our sister company Tradiebot. This will enable us to facilitate repairs on plastic components that regularly have missing lugs or brackets and would not usually be able to be repaired.
These parts (such as headlights, grills and supports) will now be able to be repaired, rather than being thrown into waste and replaced with a brand-new part due to a small missing component.
We have established ongoing exclusive relationships with suppliers and are constantly working towards building new relationships with quality suppliers who currently carry their own range of repair components.
These components are comprised of several materials such as ABS, Polypropylene and Nylon. Each of these components has its own fitting method using either plastic fuse welding, adhesive bond or screws.
Used across many industries, 3D printing compliments traditional technologies to improve product design, streamline manufacturing and even forge entirely new business models. As its utility and accessibility increases, so does its potential to unlock innovation for countless inventors, engineers and designers whose ideas were previously too difficult or expensive to manufacture.
Plastfix is well advanced in creating solutions for the automotive parts supply sector, allowing us to offer our customers plastic repair components not previously available. A large proportion of our jigs are also developed using 3D printing and are made from a durable nylon material that is not affected by heat during welding repairs.
These components are unique and are only available to our customers through the Plastfix model.
