Stay Ahead of The Manufacturing Game for Composite Parts
3D printing allows the production of parts with impressive geometric complexity, part consolidation, design optimizations and high-temperate resistance up to 180°C in typical autoclave cycles for mold tooling and sacrificial tooling applications.
3D printing for tool prototyping can significantly reduce cost and lead times in pre-production to production in a few days, with more than 90% cost savings as compared to traditional tooling methods. Stratasys FDM 3D printers can also allow your businesses to do away with touch labor and machining, by directly printing your final mold tooling.
Eliminate the use of bulky machines and additional tooling to prepare tools like cavity molds for casting with FDM 3D printers. FDM technology uses proprietary and dissolvable thermoplastic materials to create composite parts of complex, trapped-tool geometries with ease.
FDM materials also ensure produced parts are resilient in terms of thermal and strength properties. Thus, gain products that are resistant to induced damage, dimensionally stable, and are comprehensively user-friendly.
