Meet the pressure to innovate faster.
Roadrunner’s additive manufacturing produces products up to 10 times faster than conventional 3D printing, reducing costs and waste across industries including aerospace and defense, automotive, healthcare, and entertainment.
Speed, control, and quality are all possible using additive manufacturing for high quality, end-use parts. Roadrunner 3D can help you save money and time on:
-> Low volume manufacturing
-> Mass customization
Prototypes and Models
Rapidly create, test, and refine versions as many times as needed at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional manufacturing. You can even experiment with an array of materials to determine what’s suits your needs. You can print:
-> Rapid prototypes
-> Functional prototypes
-> Appearance models
Roadrunner 3D offers a variety of material options from flexible plastics, to chemical and moisture resistant resins, to the toughest metals. Need to meet medical-grade or food-grade requirements or flame-retardant abilities? We have the materials to do that. We can also print in full color, black, or clear.
Get the precise look and functionality you need with our dyeing and painting, plating/coating, and smoothing and sealing services.

How to control manufacturing efficiency
In the manufacturing environment, efficiency and predictability of the process is key to guaranteeing the production plan and optimizing the manufacturing cost of the final product. There are several methods and metrics that have been developed over the years to track different factors that influence the process, such as cycle time and critical performance parameters. These parameters are used to detect any deviation of the process performance as soon as possible to guarantee a reliable performance. The Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) is a metric that integrates the tracking and control of the entire end-to-end manufacturing process, enabling the quick detection of any deviation that appears in any point of the process.
