3 Ways a Small Mold Builder Uses 3D Printing
Mold builder uses 3D printing for simultaneous mold manufacturing, conformal cooling and hybrid designs.

Additively manufactured medical parts and implants

Highly-Automated Tool Shop Achieves Efficient, Precise Medical Device Manufacturing
When a basketball player needs a knee replacement, standard implants simply won’t do. With a total of 18 different additive manufacturing systems, the Aesculap division of medical company B. Braun is the place to go to have custom implants printed to size. However, the highly-automated tool and mold shop has much more to offer when it comes to producing injection molds, complex progressive dies as well as prototypes and fixtures for series production.

SLIDESHOW: Technology Tuesday, From 3D Printing to Mold Cleaning
MMT offers technical content in a variety of formats, including webinars. Here is a quick overview of some archived webinars that cover mold engineering, building and maintenance.

Simulate to Validate Molding, and 3D Printed Molds
This throwback focuses on one mold builder's strategy for bridging the gap between concept and production using simulation, but then fast-forwards to a new white paper on using simulation to validate 3D printed injection molds.

Booth Will Demonstrate 3D Printing of Mold Tools
Stratasys’ booth will feature an Objet260 Connex3 3D printer building injection molding tools in digital ABS material that will then be installed and run on a Boy injection molding machine.

3D Printing with Quick Change Mold System Creates Price/Performance Benchmark for Low-Volume Injection Molding
Stratasys Ltd. and HASCO developed a rapid, cost-efficient method to producing low volumes of injection molded prototypes by integrating 3D printing with a quick-change mold system.

Incorporating 3D Printing
Technologies that give moldmakers the ability to test out a couple different designs before investing in the final tool.

Multi-Material 3D Printers Feature Triple-Jetting Technology
Stratasys offers six multi-material 3D printers with compact and mid-size build envelopes that all feature the company’s PolyJet triple-jetting technology.
