3D printing for tooling
Tooling components are used in many manufacturing processes. Whether it’s for injection molding, robotic grippers, stamping or cutting, 3D printing can create both high value and large cost reductions.
3D printed tools help speed up processes and lower costs
Tooling is a generic term that covers several manufacturing processes. Companies rely on these components to create highly efficient production workflows. But tooling is often a complex process that require a lot of resources and time.
3D printing for tooling is ideal when you want to produce shorter runs with short lead times. Unlike milling, cost doesn’t increase with complexity. There is a wide variety of materials to choose from, that gives you the mechanical properties you need for your tool. We even have carbon fiber reinforcement to give strength equal to aluminium.
