Using additive manufacturing for sacrificial composite tool production.

With better tools and better materials, one can build a better house. This theory applies to many endeavors in the world. For so long, because of a lack of materials, 3D printing has been used almost extensively for prototyping, creating designs to be tested out. The technology has continued to improve, but the materials have remained stagnant. Over the last few years, however, we have seen an explosion in the variety of material options offered for manufacturers. Because of the impressive increase in quality of these materials, we can start looking at using 3D printing for more than just prototyping.

Over the next eight pages, we will discuss the opportunity to use additive manufacturing for sacrificial composite tool production. We will discuss what FDM sacrificial tooling is, application best fits, tool design, building for optimal results, and composite consolidation. We will also discuss where we think this incredible technology is heading, and how it can be applied to your business. Download the whitepaper to learn more.
