3D Printing accelerates the future of Power Take Off

The beginning of Bezares in the world of 3D printing has meant a significant change in the exposure of its products and in the conception of its prototypes and its ease of application. From metal to plastic, a decision that has saved time and costs for Bezares.

The beginning of Bezares in the world of 3D printing has meant a significant change in the exposure of its products and in the conception of its prototypes and its ease of application. From metal to plastic, a decision that has saved time and costs for Bezares.

Bezares, the world reference company in PTO’s and hydraulic equipment for industrial vehicles, has been working on the manufacture of prototypes and exhibition pieces through additive manufacturing. What started as something simple has become for them something fundamental and that has implemented the conception of many of their products. “At the technical level, being able to check quickly a physical part is fantastic,” says Predrag Jevtovic, head of the R&D department at Bezares.

The applications of 3D printing in Bezares factory have been increasing significantly: rapid prototyping, pieces to show in fairs, toolings, auxiliary use parts in the factory, even pieces “that help us when deciding how to machine a piece”.

“Having a part available in a short time at the time of machining advances a lot the production terms. We do not have to wait for the casting part to arrive and with that physical piece we can program the machine perfectly at the expense of the finished part” – coments Predrag.

The technical office has been another of the departments where 3D printing has been a major change, where it gives them speed and has allowed them to move forward and investigate physical parts already finished when solving certain errors. Agustín López, designer of hydraulic elements in the technical office, reaffirms the possibilities of additive manufacturing: “You can modify a piece one and a thousand times and in the other way you always have to wait for a physical piece and touch up on that which is always expensive in terms of money and time, of course”.

Another of the highlights of 3D printing in factories is usually flexibility: the ability to work continuously with the DT600+, the different materials you can print with it and a configuration that allows to obtain good results in short periods of time.

On the future of 3D printing at Bezares Predrag Jevtovic highlights the importance of moving towards industry 4.0, towards the digitalization of processes and the implementation of this type of new technologies that provide innovative solutions and ideas.

Dynamical Tools would like to thank Predrag and his team for the work they do and their predisposition.
