$1 MM project with NYSERDA to demonstrate transformative potential energy-efficient 3D printing
Harbec to achieve superior energy performance by integrating principles of ‘biomimicry’ into advanced mold-making tools and techniques, made possible by 3D printing
U.S. based manufacturers including Harbec continuously face pressures from their customers to (1) enhance product quality and performance, and (2) reduce costs. The capabilities of non-U.S. based manufacturers have advanced tremendously in the past two decades. As a result U.S. manufacturers not only compete against each other, but also against lower-cost producers in China and other Asia-Pacific region nations. To exacerbate the challenge, U.S. manufacturers are working hard to manage their energy costs, regulatory requirements, and other costs of doing business.
To remain competitive in global economy, businesses like Harbec have to innovate. In this project Harbec will demonstrate the use of 3D printing (additive manufacturing)
Bob Bechtold, President of Harbec states, “We strive for excellence in all we do. That is how we remain competitive. As part of our energy policy, Harbec is always aspiring to improve our energy efficiency and performance (https://www.harbec.com/
