“Before we had the J35 Pro, we would spend lots of time communicating, preparing models. The entire process took weeks and lots of testing — and it did not always work. With our current in-house possibilities, we get most printing jobs done overnight and get many working models to share with our customers.” Yaniv Adir Taga
Design and engineering firms face numerous challenges in today’s competitive landscape. The need to impress clients, provide innovative solutions, and stay ahead can create undue pressure. To address these difficulties, Taga, a manufacturing engineering company specializing in industrial design, engineering planning, and UX/UI, decided to explore the potential of adopting an in-house 3D printer, specifically the J35™ Pro PolyJet™ 3D printer. Through their experience with this printer, Yaniv Adir, project manager at Taga, gained valuable insights and lessons.
Before implementing the J35 Pro, Taga encountered significant delays in sending out design models for testing once the design process was complete. This led to a limited number of models being sent to external vendors, requiring careful selection of trustworthy vendors to protect the intellectual property of Taga and their clients. Furthermore, the concept validation testing process involved a restricted number of models that did not always meet Taga’s desired standards of quality and accuracy. Recognizing the need for change, Yaniv Adir remarked, “To expand my business and enhance customer service, I realized the importance of reducing time-to-service while improving the quality of the products I deliver.” Yaniv Adir Taga.
Taga decided to adopt the Stratasys J35 Pro for their designers and engineers. The printer has provided a multitude of benefits, but Yaniv claims that the main advantage has been the ability to carry out quick testing — which has proved to be critical both internally and externally with customers.
For example, one of Taga’s projects involved a safety feature for drones. The challenge in the product was having the ability to stop the drone rotary and reduce breakability. They needed the rotary to have a high level of flexibility and were uncertain what the best level of rigidity should be. This issue was solved by using multiple prints. Prior to owning the J35 Pro, printing this many prints would have involved long hours and countless printing attempts. Instead, they used the J35 Pro to print four different samples with varying levels of rigidity, which immediately enabled their clients to perceive the concept and adopt the appropriate design. This not only enabled a viable product but helped them differentiate themselves.
With the J35 Pro, Taga has been able to adopt multi-material printing. The combination of flexible and rigid materials have also enabled them to design prototypes to meet various product needs.
“This has been extremely beneficial in some of our medical projects. Also, an added benefit is that some of our designs are IP protected and having the ability to print in-house instead of sending it out to an external party has provided more security and insured that there is less risk involved.” Yaniv Adir Taga
