Stratasys Ltd a world leading manufacturer of 3D printers and 3D production systems for office-based rapid prototyping and direct digital manufacturing solutions, today showcased “Trends and applications in 3D Printing” in a seminar at My Fortune Hotel in Bangalore with ALTEM TECHNOLOGIES a strategic vision partner.
Focused on how professional 3D Printers could be used in rapid tooling applications like Injection Molding, Blow Molding, Investment Casting and Jigs & Fixtures. Recent developments in 3D Printing and Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) technologies are redefining the design & manufacturing processes. The event highlighted how 3D Printing offers a fast and affordable way to produce injection molded prototypes.
3D printed Injection Mold tools are suitable for small production series but since tools cost is low, they are commercially viable also when only a few parts are needed and are typically ready to inject in a matter of a few hours. PIMTs can be used to inject polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, ABS, and thermoplastic elastomers.
