Injection molding requires high initial investment and lead time for tooling, which slows down the introduction of new products to the market. However, 3D printing technology offers a cost-cutting, agile solution to quickly design and fabricate molds for small runs of thermoplastics prototypes or end-use parts.
Watch this panel discussion in which experts from the injection molding industry will discuss how 3D printing enables in-demand mold fabrication to generate hundreds of parts, from idea to production, in a matter of days.
Mark Bartlett, president of the engineering company Novus Applications, and Jacob Fallon, technology development engineer at leading polymer producer Braskem America, delve into this hybrid process. They share design guidelines and injection conditions to manufacture low-run injection molds with 3D printing.Presented by:
