Benefits of 3D Printing for Molds + Tooling

The creation of Molds traditionally was an investment of time, money and design that was never to be taken lightly. The high initial cost of the mold demands that the part run must be numerous or the individual parts will be end up expensive. Changes typically require a new mold. These factors affect the life span and viability of designs. The increasingly used laser powder bed fusion technology in production of end-use tools and inserts offers many advantages:

  • Conformal Cooling Channel Design

    Thanks to the advanced manufacturing capability, advanced conformal cooling channels can be designed and produced for improved overall cooling efficiency and enhanced production compacity.

  • Optimized Quality & Accuracy

    Compared to traditional manufacturing process of mold-making such as CNC and welding, laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing offers high quality final products with improved detail features, surface finishes and size accuracy that requires no further post-processing.

  • Faster Design to Production Cycle Time

    Thanks to the design & validation flexibility brought by 3D printing, new mold design prototypes can be quickly produced and tested without the need for additional tools. Mold-makers are able to complete the design to manufacturing of the end-use products in just a few days.

  • Cost-efficiency for Small Batch Production

    3D Printing offers cost efficient and flexible production method for small-batch numbers and non-standard tooling orders. It helps customer expanding new markets and specific applications, with a competitive edge.
