Ashley furniture using 3D printers

Posted on Updated on

ARCADIA, Wis. Ashley Furniture Inds. is using 3D printers in its manufacturing facilities.
According to Vaughn Pieters, senior director of case good operations, “We’re doing 10% more business out of our Arcadia facility alone with probably almost 15% less labor. Automation has really allowed us to remove some of that heavy physicality. We don’t have employees doing that heavy bulk work all day long anymore. We let the machine do that, so the employees can use their minds and try to better the process”.
According to Ashley,” It’s using printers from Boston-based 3D printing unicorn Formlabs in several of its manufacturing facilities, printing about 700 3D parts, so the machines are able to work right alongside the industrial robots from assembly to fabrication”.
