Western Tool & Mold Pairs Existing Resources with 3D Printing

Hong Kong-based Western Tool & Mold specializes in engineering-grade tooling fabrication and injection molding, producing a wide range of products, including medical devices, drug containers and critical-use metal replacements. The company serves diverse industries, including aerospace, medicine, electronics and industrial services.

The need to provide its customers with new ways to meet urgent deadlines and make use of limited resources drove Western Tool & Mold to investigate 3D printing technology. Its customers often faced challenges in the manufacturing process. For example, an aerospace client urgently needed parts for an aircraft already on the assembly line. Quick delivery was the only solution to avoid the consequences associated with a delay.
