The Speed Myth: Perceptions vs. Reality

  1. 1. The Speed Myth: Perceptions vs. Reality
  2. 2. FDM Technology Who is Stratasys? + Inkjet Technology
  3. 3. Today’s Event Host Kim Killoran Stratasys, Inc. Presenter Todd Grimm T. A. Grimm & Associates, Inc.
  4. 4. The Speed Myth Time ≠ constant • Perceptions: misleading • Speed: relative • Variables: many
  5. 5. The Speed Myth Time ≠ constant • Perceptions: misleading • Speed: relative • Variables: many Goal = efficiency Will cover • Time for process • Time (hands on) • Time variables • Time’s effect • Time buckets
  6. 6. Total Process Time
  7. 7. Total Process Time
  8. 8. Total Process Time File prep • Orient, support, slice •Machine prep • Load, warm up •Build •Wait • Drain, cool, harden •Post • Clean, cure, remove, sand
  9. 9. Automation Manual vs. automated • Resource demands • Resource availability
  10. 10. Automation Manual vs. automated • Resource demands • Resource availability Resource = you?
  11. 11. Build Time Time varies • Presets • Options Presets vary with: • Orientation • Volume • Surface area • Footprint
  12. 12. Build Time Options • Build style • Layers, resolution • Fill style, hatching • Batching • As needed • Consolidated • Orientation • For quality • As a solution
  13. 13. 0.00 10.00 20.00 30.00 40.00 50.00 Hours Consolidated Builds Individual Builds Build Time
  14. 14. Build Time Options • Build style • Layers, resolution • Fill style, hatching • Batching • As needed • Consolidated • Orientation • For quality • As a solution
  15. 15. Time’s Effect on Time Speed varies with age • Some stable over time • Others degrade Examples • Lasers and light sources • Material degradation
  16. 16. Time Buckets Rapid response to emergency • Good but not normal Standard operating modes • As needed • Consolidated Common operating periods • 4-hour cycles • 8-hour cycles • 24-hour cycles
  17. 17. Time Buckets Rapid response to emergency • Good but not normal Standard operating modes • As needed • Consolidated Common operating periods • 4-hour cycles • 8-hour cycles • 24-hour cycles
  18. 18. Time Buckets Rapid response to emergency • Good but not normal Standard operating modes • As needed • Consolidated Common operating periods • 4-hour cycles • 8-hour cycles • 24-hour cycles
  19. 19. 8:00 a 5:00 p 8:00 p Time Buckets Rapid response to emergency • Good but not normal Standard operating modes • As needed • Consolidated Common operating periods • 4-hour cycles • 8-hour cycles • 24-hour cycles
  20. 20. The Speed Myth •Many variables; few generalizations •Speed is relative • No matter the speed, still faster than conventional •Know importance and influencers •Remember: speed is just one criteria “There's never seems to be enough time to do it right the first time, but there's always enough time to go back and do it again.”
