Motor Connector Adapter for Bioreactor

case-studies Description

Customized connector adapter for bioreactor

The Challenge

The Distek BIONE Bioprocess Control Station is a state-of-the-art benchtop scale bioreactor with high standards of both functionality and surface quality.

The customer needed to produce connectors for a low volume customized product that needed to fit various controller models. Injection molding with ABS was not feasible and other 3D printing materials did not meet functionality or surface quality  specifications.

The Solution

3D Printed connector adapter with LOCTITE 3D 3843 HDT60 High Toughness


  • Facilitates complex geometries without tools for production grade connector ​
  • Better performance compared to the existing solutions
  • 90% lead time reduction
  • Smooth surface, great performance that rivals injection molding
  • No tooling costs
  • Multiple design iterations possible
  • Better performance vs. other DLP resin
