Stratasys brings 3D printing to injection moulding landscape

News 02.08.2016

The company will be demonstrating how additive manufacturing can shake up injection moulding at K 2016.


With Stratasys 3D printed injection moulds, Unilever is able to produce prototype parts in the final product material for functional and consumer testing, 40 per cent faster than its previous injection moulding process.

Visitors will be able to hear how the likes of Unilever, HASCO, Berker, Promolding and others are pioneering the use of 3D printed molds for the rapid production of prototype parts in final materials for evaluation and testing. Overcoming the lengthy lead times and costly outlay associated with the traditional manufacture of mould tools, these companies are enjoying reduced turnaround times and costs of up to 90 per cent.

Visitors to the Stratasys booth will be able to see how Stratasys’ recently launched J750 3D Printer – the world’s only full colour, multi-material 3D printer – quickly produces Digital ABS moulds that can withstand the high pressures and temperatures of a Dr. Boy injection moulding machine, which is featured on the Stratasys stand. A number of prototype samples will be tested using a diverse range of final part materials, showcasing the high-performance capabilities of Digital ABS mould cavities for low-volume injection moulding. As experienced by Stratasys customers worldwide, this innovative technique will show visitors how to transform the low-volume injection moulding process for increased efficiency, profitability and significantly decreased lead times.

In addition to injection moulding, Stratasys will be demonstrating a variety of 3D printing applications that enhance a number of other traditional manufacturing processes. Running live on the stand will be the company’s Fortus 450mc 3D Printer, a proven multi-purpose solution for many of the world’s leading manufacturers. Examples of manufacturing applications include composite tooling, the production of assembly tools such as jigs and fixtures, as well as the manufacture of final production parts. Increasingly, tier one companies such as Airbus, BMW, Opel, and Lamborghini are already reducing production costs, slashing lead times and streamlining supply chain workflows with Stratasys 3D printing.
