3D printing makes inroads in injection molding

January 13, 2016

3D printing is an exponential innovation. Regular breakthroughs in 3D printer speed, resolution, cost and reliability demonstrate the potential not only for scale but also for unlocking new possibilities. Coupled with a fast-evolving range of printable materials, 3D printing is expanding into traditional manufacturing processes and being used for tools, molds, tool masters and end-use parts.

One area of manufacturing that is experiencing a true paradigm shift is injection molding. By 3D printing the injection molds, manufacturers can functionally test parts in final materials within days of initial design.
