Spectroplast by the Numbers

Spectroplast’s key results from using 3YOURMIND AM workflow software include:

  • Increased efficiency and sales by 25%
  • Price quote to order time decreased by 20%
  • Improved machine utilization by 50%
  • Production timelines decreased by 50%

Due to automated price quotes and improved machine utilization, Spectroplast launched its express service, enhancing production time from ten days to five days.

“We increased capacity and machine utilization by operating print jobs that match available capacity with current demand,” says Petar Stefanov, Chief Technical Officer. “As a result, we’re now able to get more parts per machine by using 3YOURMIND.” 

Spectroplast recently made waves as a premier silicone AM service provider at the world’s largest industry trade show, Formnext, in Frankfurt, Germany.

“3YOURMIND’s partnership with Spectroplast demonstrates how additive manufacturing workflow efficiency can lead to measurable results,” says 3YOURMIND CEO and Founder Stephan Kühr. “We look forward to witnessing Spectroplast continue to innovate as an AM service provider.”
