Fast injection moulded parts with Rapid Tooling
Rapid Tooling is the additive manufacture of injection moulding tools. Depending on the quantity and the material properties of the components needed , the injection moulding tool will be made of plastic or metal. The time-consuming design and planning of the the injection moulds are no longer necessary as CAD files of the injection moulded part that is needed are digitally converted into the digital equivalent of the mould in the print2mold service.
The cost-intensive manufacture of a mechanically made injection moulding tool usually takes up to 6 weeks - This is often too long, too expensive and too time-consuming for the manufacture of prototypes and small series. Additive manufacturing makes it possible to fabricate individual injection moulded components quickly and economically as close-to-production prototypes or small series. In this way, different materials can be tested on functional prototypes directly in the application.
