Assembly Line Tooling
Before using Markforged, Eaton tried several fabrication methods for their adapter. However, their crudely welded adapter fell apart and their machined polycarbonate adapter broke with cyclic loading. Using a Markforged 3D printer, Eaton quickly printed a composite stanchion adapter. Onyx reinforced with Fiberglass allowed the part to outperform their previous iterations for far less cost than machined aluminum.
