Increase Silicone Molding Capability With FDM Patterns

Patterns used to make silicone molds are typically machined from metal. However this process is expensive, takes time and isn’t convenient when design changes are needed. In contrast, silicone mold patterns made from FDM Technology are less expensive and can be made quickly, regardless of pattern complexity. View the webinar to learn more about how FDM patterns can enhance your silicone molding capability.

The Value of FDM Jigs & Fixtures

The Value of FDM Jigs & Fixtures: Who, What, Where, When & Why

Manufacturing relies on tools including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges to maintain quality and production efficiency. Although these tools are virtually invisible when production is running smoothly, their importance becomes evident when problems arise. By using FDM technology to produce jigs & fixtures, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality.

The Value of FDM End-Use Parts: Who, What, Where, When & Why

Manufacturers know that saving time and increasing production efficiencies have a direct effect on their company’s bottom line. Using 3D printing to produce end-use parts can provides unprecedented benefits for low-volume manufacturing. It can also be used to bridge the gap between product concept and traditional manufacturing processes. In this webinar, you’ll see how manufacturers are using 3D printing to add efficiencies to their organization and learn how to incorporate this technology onto your production floor.

The Value of PolyJet for Silicone Molding: Who, What, Where, When & Why

Silicone molding — also known as room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) molding — creates finished products for prototyping, functional testing and short-run production. The traditional silicone mold-making process uses a machined pattern made of plastic, wood or other materials. This method is often expensive and time consuming, and as pattern complexity rises, lead time and cost also increase.

The Value of FDM Sand Casting: Who, What, Where, When & Why

Sand casting is the process of metal casting using sand as the mold material. The resulting mold cavity is used to create finished metal parts. The production of sand molds and cast metal parts is relatively straightforward and suitable for automated methods. However, fabrication of the patterns used to produce the sand molds (typically CNC machining) is often difficult, time-consuming and expensive

It's Payback Time: Justifying additive manufacturing with jigs and fixtures

Increasing the number of manufacturing tools like jigs, fixtures and organizational aids, improves efficiency, capacity, unit cost and responsiveness. Using additive manufacturing (or 3D printing) to produce these tools makes them more accessible and quicker to implement. The result is more manufacturing aids where they previously didn’t exist. Savings can be so high that they can easily justify the purchase of an additive manufacturing system in far less time than expected.

Motor Trends: Additive Manufacturing Drives Production of Race-Ready Cars

Additive manufacturing (AM) is crucial in motorsports. In the race for speed and performance, it has long been a key design and testing tool. Now, race teams are revealing that AM parts are tough enough for use on the track. This trend toward end-use parts has been building for a long time, but teams can be secretive about what gives them a competitive edge.

In this webinar, we’re lucky enough to present three examples of motorsports teams willing to share how they leverage AM to improve performance: Joe Gibbs Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing, and Prodrive in the U.K. Their stories will crush the misconception that AM parts are just for prototyping.

Stratasys’ Allen Kreemer, formerly of Honda, will be your host along with special guest Paul Doe, chief designer at Prodrive, the team behind the World Rally Championship Mini.
