Notes for your Express Order
Plan a time buffer, as errors can occur during production. The specified production time corresponds approximately to the cycle time of the respective process. If production errors occur during the process, they often cannot be corrected due to the long cycle time (see below). In such cases (< 2% of cases) we will of course contact you. The cycle time of PA 12 is as follows:
- Day 1: 3D printing (approx. 12 – 16 h)
- Day 2 – 3: cooling (approx. 48 h are required)
- Day 4: post processing (usually approx. 1 working day)
Production time ≠ Delivery time: The delivery time is calculated from the production time given above plus the shipping time. We exclusively ship within Germany using DHL Express. For international shipments, we use DHL. Transit time varies depending on the destination country. Within Germany, it usually takes 1 business day, while within the EU it can take 2-4 business days.
Order Express in the morning: Express orders will only be processed on the same business day if the order is placed before 12:00 noon . The reason for this is that 12:00 is the time when the production planning for that day is completed and the machines are started.
The surcharge for express production is a flat 25% surcharge. Furthermore, an additional flat rate of EUR 15 (plus VAT) per item will be charged. The reason for the surcharge is the production planning as well as the rework:
- Production planning: The production planning for the respective machines is usually completed 24 – 48 h before printing. In the case of express production, however, same-day printing is necessary, so production has to be rearranged accordingly, resulting in additional work.
- Prioritization in rework: A three- to four-digit number of components leave our plant every day. Due to the tight lead line, express components must be prioritized to ensure same-day shipment.
