Sacrificial Tooling for
Composite Part Fabrication

Additive manufacturing simplifies the creation of complex composite structures

Create hollow, seamless, complex composite structures with smooth internal surfaces and simplified tool removal, by 3D printing sacrificial tooling with FDM Technology. FDM wash-out tooling withstands typical autoclave cure conditions and eliminates design constraints associated with trapped-tool geometries. This enables fast design iteration and greater design freedom.

  • Choosing the right tool design
  • Designing large tools
  • Understanding the importance of build orientation
  • Obtaining optimal lay-up and tool removal results
