Molding & Tooling

Print jigs, fixtures, gauges, patterns, molds, and dies

With 3D Printing you have the opportunity to create tooling and custom fixtures giving you the flexibility to embrace more opportunities, act faster and shrink the cost and risk associated with traditional production.

Instead of spending time and money to machine, fabricate, mold or cast your tools you can easily print them using a variety of high performance materials.

Typical Usage

  • Creating Jigs and FixturesnBlow MoldsnInjection MoldsnShock TestingnSand CastingnLost PLA CastingnLow volume part runs

3D Printing Benefits

  • Low-volume production tooling means you can create prototypes from the same process and materials that you’ll use for the final product.n3D Printing technology produces tool masters with fine feature detail and smooth surfaces right out of the build chamber.

Case in Point

BMW’s jigs and fixtures department uses a 3D Production System to build hand-tools for automobile assembly and testing.

Jigs & Fixtures

Manufacturing relies on tools, including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges, to maintain quality and production efficiency – now you can quickly manufacture them with a 3D Printer.

3D Printing Benefits

  • Lead times reduced by 40 to 80 percent.nCost reduced by 70 to 95 percent.nEliminate assembly and improve performance and accuracy.nDesign freedom for improved function and ergonomics

Blow and Injection Molding

Prototyping enables designers to validate parameters and accelerate design approval. For instance a small change in the design can be costly when a change in the mold is required.

3D Printing Benefits

  • Lead time reduced by 30 to 70 percent.nPrototype mold cost reduced by 40 to 80 percent.nStability, eliminating distortion with heat.nDurability through hundreds of cycles.nLittle or no need for post processing.

Molding

Rather than machining your patterns you can now print them allowing you to reduce manufacturing costs and create more complex molds

3D Printing Benefits

  • Lead times reduced by 50 to 80 percentnCost reduced by 40 to 75 percentnInert models that won’t inhibit curingnStable models that won’t distort with heatnDurable models that can be used many times
