How 3D printing is transforming prototyping in injection moulding.

Testing parts in final materials faster, 3D printing inroads in injection moulding.

When it comes to injection moulding, precision is of utmost importance. Injection moulding, or injecting plastic material into a mould cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the cavity, has benefitted enormously from the cost-effective and speedy nature of 3D printing. Injection moulding can be a lengthy and costly process with the fact that tooling can take anywhere from weeks to months using expensive materials and traditional tooling methods.

Additive manufacturing offers a significant decrease in time and production cost, cutting those weeks and months to hours and days, as well as offering cheaper materials with no overall cost of quality. Over the next twelve pages, we're going to discuss the overall impact additive manufacturing has had on the injection moulding industry and how it can be implemented into your business production process. We'll discuss the best practice guidelines of designing moulds, printing moulds, finishing moulds, mounting, and the injection moulding process. Download the whitepaper to learn more.
