Join the Eastern New England and the Mold Technologies Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers for a webinar about 3D printed injection molds. Speakers from Fortify will introduce the technology and best practices for success with 3D printed tools.
When you are racing the clock on a prototype molding project, you need to leverage new technology when it’s available. With 3D printing, you can have molded parts in hand in 4 days - expediting approvals and certifications needed to bring products to market. 3D printed mold inserts can now withstand the rigors of the injection mold process - thanks to the technology from Fortify. By introducing reinforcing fibers in 3D printed parts, Fortify is able print tools with revolutionary strength, stiffness, and temperature stability. These tools allow you to produce hundreds of parts - perfect for low volume and prototyping, combating long lead times and expensive machining costs.
The business case is compelling, but these tools ARE different from metal tools and they require tweaks to both design, and operation. This webinar will review best practices for designing reinforced 3D printed tools, the operating differences between printed tools vs. metal, and the business opportunities accessible using 3D printed injection mold inserts.
The presentation will also highlight case studies where Fortify’s 3D printed tools were used on real customer applications, including quick-turn COVID PPE projects.
