TOOLING

Design and Print Tools and Molds at a Fraction of the Cost

Traditional manufacturing methods are driven by CNC machines and injection molding machines, both of which require tools to be made, iterated, manufactured, and shipped. This entire process can take months, even with the best suppliers on the planet. With the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) 3D Printing Platform, skip over the lead time and tooling costs, and create highly accurate molds, that can be tweaked on the fly. These 3D-printed tools can be printed in a matter of days at a fraction of the cost of traditional tooling and casting methods.

WHY HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION?

Cut Print Time in Half

The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer features true independent dual extruders, allowing users to print two halves of a mold at once, cutting print time in half. 

Skip Lead Time

Traditional tooling manufacturing can take months to arrive. Ski p the lead time and design and print tools in a matter of hours. 

Reduce Capital Expenses

CapEx costs such as tooling material storage, creation of the tool, and the storage of the tool increase with every product order. With AM manufacturers can directly produce parts on the fly.
