A Move Toward In-house Additive Manufacturing at PPI

PPI’s engineering teams, along with our new technician in training have been now designing prototypes for select projects and producing custom fixturing to improve service applications with great results. Particularly, the VMM Fixture which allows an operator to load up to 26 pieces at once, rather than the single piece process currently used is drastically reducing inspection time and the number of times inspection is interrupted by the manufacturing floor. In addition to reducing inspection times, the final design will allow inspectors to increase capacity overall.

The fixture currently in its final phase of R&D,which includes the addition of a cover plate to facilitate inter-departmental transportation and integration with Keyonce inspection procedures.
