Manufacturing Tooling

Streamline production and customize on the fly

Quick, low-volume tooling and custom fixtures give manufacturers the flexibility to embrace more opportunities, act faster and shrink the cost and risk associated with traditional production.

Find your manufacturing tooling application

FDM MoldPerformance 3D Production Systems build manufacturing tooling in production-grade materials, including high-performance engineering thermoplastics like ULTEM 9085. With FDM Technology, you can produce jigs, fixtures, tool masters and even low-volume production tooling in-house in hours or days.

Precision 3D Production Systems produce tool masters with fine feature detail and smooth surfaces right out of the build chamber. Low-volume production tooling means you can create prototypes from the same process and materials that you’ll use for the final product, and bring new products to market even while you wait for the final tooling to arrive from the machine shop.
