The Most Viewed Products of 2018

MoldMaking Technology wraps up the year by showcasing the most-viewed products of 2018.

As 2018 comes to a close, we enjoy looking back to review various aspects of the year. Today MoldMaking Technology brings readers a slide show of the most-viewed products introduced. It is interesting to see that five-axis machining and additive manufacturing are dominant among these 15 products, just as they were the dominant technologies at IMTS in September. Still, EDM, software, mold materials, mold cleaning, mold components, workholding products, and cutting tools are also represented here. Take a few minutes to review what was new in 2018 that resonated most with MMT readers.




  • Laser Sintering And Conformal Cooling Channels

    Moldmakers who are interested in exploring conformal cooling, but are concerned about its complexity and expense need to understand two things: it is neither complex nor expensive.

  • Rapid Tooling - Cast Resin and Sprayed Metal Tooling

    Indirect tooling methods use the RP process to generate a pattern from which tooling inserts are made. This article describes two such indirect tooling processes - cast resin and sprayed metal tooling.

  • Methods of Rapid Tooling Worldwide

    In the short term, indirect methods of RT will continue to flourish because these methods are the most developed. In the long term, however, companies will lean toward direct methods of tooling.
