OMAG AND ADDITIVE MANUFATURING WITH NUOVAMACUT

Omag relies on a leading partner such as Nuovamacut to explore the world of additive manufacturing.

Omag progettazione UT

3D printing over the past few years has developed enormously, effectively moving from the role of a rapid prototyping tool to a full-fledged means of production.

At first, the intention was to focus on small printers to make prototypes and make the R&D process faster and more efficient, thanks to the ability to test quickly what was designed via CAD. The idea then developed further and Omag thus decided to opt for a machine that could cope with even small production.

Not just prototypes but real machine components, in some cases difficult to produce with the classic tools available.

Three main objectives:

  • CUSTOMIZATION

To increase the flexibility of production and to be able to offer increasingly customized solutions, meeting the specific customers’ needs.

  • NEW SHAPES

To realize solutions and components that would otherwise be difficult to produce, which could be designed, manufactured and finally installed on packaging machines even in one day.

  • COST OPTIMIZATION

Reducing the production costs of certain components, balancing this goal with the company’s mission to produce custom-made automatic packaging machines.

A PRACTICAL EXAMPLE: VACUUM GROUP

The vacuum group is a patented system used for products with poor flowability to create a vacuum inside the dosing tubes for powders. The group is connected to each feeding tube by reschets and rubber hoses.

Previously, the vacuum unit was made by assembling multiple stainless steel and aluminum components.

Using HP MJF 3D printing technology, the vacuum assembly was redesigned and then fully printed as a single component requiring no assembly operation.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING, A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION

Being able to test certain components early in the design phase has enabled Omag to reduce waste and discarded components due to design errors.

In addition, the work of re-designing parts previously made from metal materials and through subtractive technologies has also reduced scrap production.
