3D Printing used to accelerate ‘design to manufacture’ process

Apply Mobile’s Technical Design Facility in Helsinki are using 3D printing to design the new generation of credit-card size iDENtear devices.

3D printing allows Apply Mobile to optimise the size of the device whilst designing the revised internal components to reflect a new form factor. ‘This approach means we can quickly manipulate the dimensions of the physical shell whilst working with the our electronic assembly partners to utilise the latest ‘wafer’ batteries’ comments Henri Sundelin, Chief Technical Officer . This will result in significant time and cost saving across our ‘design to manufacture’ process.
