Injection molding requires high initial investment, specialist equipment and lead time for tooling, this can significantly hinder the speed and cost to introduce new products to the market. 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.
Join Formlabs in a live webinar on 2nd February 2021, 2pm SGT which will discuss how 3D printing can unlock in-demand mold fabrication to generate hundreds of parts. From idea to production in a matter of days at a fraction of the cost.
The session will cover a recommended workflow, design guidelines and injecting conditions to manufacture low-run injection molds with 3D printing. It will also discuss some use cases where customers are now using 3D printed molds from their Formlabs machine that cost less than half of a traditional in-house machined mould.
What you will learn:
- Expert processes to design a 3D printed mold for injection molding
- Which printing and molding conditions ensure success
- An overview of the Formlabs resins that our customers Novus Applications and Braskem use for the molds
- Strategies for the post-processing workflow, including ejection and demolding
