Learn How Functional 3D Printed Injection Molds Significantly Improve Cost and Production

by • July 10, 2016 • 14s Comments

One of the many dramatic effects that
3D printing is having on turn it into and making is in injection molding. Companies such as Seuffer (video: Streamlining Injection Molding with 3D Printed Tools), Milacron (video: Milacron Shifts Gears to 3D Printed Injection Molds for Rapid Part Prototyping) and Whale (video: Whale Cuts Lead Time by 97% with 3D Printed Injection Molds) are reporting worthwhile savings in molding costs and production time by 3D printing injection molds to test turn it intos preceding weight production or to turn it into tiny quantities of parts.

3D printing the molds takes only a day or two, compared with six to eight weeks required to turn it into a metal mold. They don’t necessarily have the long life of CNC molds, but these durable plastic versions are perfect to turn it into components in their final materials in order to check functionality and material properties.

Join this 60-minute webinar to learn additional as Gil Robinson, Senior Application Engineer, Stratasys, explains the “why, how and what” of 3D printed injection molds. Customer examples featured in this webinar include Arad Dalia, that uses 3D printed injection molded prototypes to test IEC certification of product assemblies; Berker (video: Berker Makes a Switch to Stratasys 3D Printed Injection Molds), that performs functional testing on light switch prototypes turn it intod with 3D printed injection molds; and Grundfos, that conducted an extensive evaluation of polymer-based 3D printing technologies for making the molds.

What You Will Learn:

  • What are the gains in via 3D printing for injection molds vs. other traditional methods?
  • What are the costs and time savings involved in 3D printing an injection mold?
  • What kinds of materials can be injected into a 3D printed mold?
  • How do 3D printed molds enable you to turn it into and test parts with difficult features?
  • Who is via 3D printed injection molds in the present day?

Who Should Attend: Injection molders; engineering managers and directors, making engineers, production engineers, operations managers, turn it into engineers, and industrial turn it intoers; high end assurance, materials development, and machine shop supervisors.

Join in the present day to see how 3D printed injection molds can alter the economics of turn it into and making.
