IJssel Technologie is part of the IJssel Group, which includes IJssel Predictive Maintenance and IJssel Perspective.
IJssel Technology has, in addition to 2 Cubicon desktop printers with a heated bed and heated indoor room, also a Markforged composite printer that prints with Onyx and with the possibility to add fiberglass, Kevlar or carbon which creates very strong objects.
In practice at an IJssel customer: ThyssenKrupp Accessibility
Every few seconds the ThyssenKrupp Accessibility production line places two hinges in a holder, after which a pin is punched through the hinges with a high pressing force.
This way, the armrests of the stairlifts can be collapsed. The holder must be just right, otherwise the pen will not go through the hinges.
Gerard Verkley van IJssel accepted the challenge. “In the past, both parts of the stairlift were secured at the correct angle with tape and cast into a bed to make a mold. That was not accurate enough. The holder often had to be sharpened. A time-consuming job “.
And so ThyssenKrupp felt a bit like the idea of IJssel to print the holder. They forwarded their CAD 3D models of the parts and Verkley got started, the design was improved by him and made suitable for 3D printing and now these holders are printed on the Markforged MarkTwo
