At a Glance Additive Manufacturing VS Injection Molding

3D Printing

Industrial 3D printing technologies increasingly offer viable production alternatives for plastic product manufacturers, with some competing extremely well on surface finish and tolerances (typically 50 to 300 microns). Moreover, 3D Printing presents a number of key advantages over injection molding because it is  wholly tool-less process that also provides unprecedented flexibility when it comes to design, both in terms of complex geometries and part consolidation. This flexibility also facilitates low-cost design iterations ahead of full production, during production or for future product generations.
