William Frick & Co Offers 3D Printing for Rapid Prototyping
(TenLinks.com) William Frick & Company provides labels, tags and other specialty identification products. Customers look to its product development team to create an idea, help solve a problem, or produce an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) part. “Because we serve customers in a variety of markets, each product we supply is unique and designed for a very specific application,” says Jeff Brandt, president of William Frick & Company. “Using a 3D printer is a quick, cost-effective way to respond to our customers’ needs.”
Most prototypes created at Frick are made of a durable ABS thermoplastic. The 3D printer melts the plastic and expels it, one tiny line at a time, to create a three-dimensional product that functions and feels like a finished product.
