C. J. Monya & Sons shortens development times with binder jet metal 3D printing

C.J. Moyna & Sons, a small company with a large footprint, has become much more efficient through the use of 3D printing technology. When the COVID pandemic disrupted global trade and made the availability of spare parts difficult, the company decided to invest in a 3D printing solution. In 2023, C.J. Moyna & Sons installed the Desktop Metal Shop System to produce 17-4 PH stainless steel parts in-house.

“We had such a hard time finding pieces and parts. There was a lot of little 20 or 80 cent parts that we could not find. Then we kind of looked through them and realized, Hey, we can just 3D print this”, says Ryan Young, Technology Coordinator at C.J. Moyna

The company now uses the Metal Binder Jetting process not only for rapid prototyping in research and development, but also for product enhancements and antique restorations.

The investment in the store system is already paying off as the flexibility of Binder Jet 3D printing is changing the company’s approach to manufacturing. The development time for new products has been shortened and the quality of the products on offer has improved.

Traditional mechanical engineering would have been more costly to produce the designs and more restrictive in terms of design. “3D printing definitely brings an advantage to making the latch in that functional design”, says Young.

The full case study is available for download and provides further insight into how C.J. Moyna & Sons has effectively integrated 3D printing into its manufacturing processes to overcome challenges and increase operational efficiency.
