MASKING

Reduce Cost and Labor Hours With 3D Printed Masking Fixtures

To protect parts during various processes on the factory floor, manufacturers occasionally need to mask sensitive areas. This process typically requires manufacturers to manually tape over specific areas, which can be time-consuming, or use injection-molded boots, which speeds up the process but has unsustainable lead times and cost. Using the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) 3D Printing Platform, users can eliminate these bottlenecks and print custom masks in hours.

WHY HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION?

Increase Throughput

Printing custom masks using an HSE 3D Printing Platform eliminates masking bottlenecks in a matter of hours, reducing time-to-part so manufacturers can get the product to market before the competition.  

Eliminate Single-Use Masking Products

Reusable 3D printed masks eliminate the need for manually applied, single-use masking products which saves money by reducing labor hours and unnecessary waste. 

Produce Complex Geometries at Scale

Utilize Support Mode on the HSE 280i HT 3D Printer to print masks for the most complex applications.
